SO finally did it today! He proposed and I said yes 🙂
We had plans to do the Bridge Walk at the New River Gorge Bridge in Fayetteville, WV. We love the bridge and the area and this has been on my bucket list since they opened the catwalk to the public a few years ago. For background info, the bridge is 876 feet above the New River and is 3,030 feet in length. It is the second largest single span steel arch in the Western Hemisphere, and the highest vehicle carrying bridge in the United States. I’m terrified of heights though so it took me a while to gather up the courage to walk across!
Since it’s the off season, it was only me, my SO, and our tour guide. I freaked out most of the way but once we made it out to the middle of the bridge, our guide left us alone and SO asked me to marry him. I said yes, continued to freak out more, and thankfully did NOT drop the ring… could you even imagine?!
Below are a few pics from the day. I don’t have any pictures of the actual proposal, but you get the idea 🙂 YAY, BEES!
This was just after.. the wind was crazy!

I was shaking so hard, scared to death of heights and trying not to drop anything lol

Thank you, everyone! I was terrified and my knees were shaking during the entire walk. Once FI proposed, it got even worse haha. Wouldn’t trade the experience for the world, though! <3
