A little earlier this year, I received a Facebook message from a childhood friend to call him as soon as possible. I knew right away that he had to be proposing to his high school sweetheart. Josh and Maddie both grew up in the same L’Anse neighborhood as I. Our history goes back to carefree days of dirt biking, pool parties, and sipping Capri Suns while watching Rocket Power on Nickelodeon.
Josh had planned to propose at a few weeks later than the day he decided on, but he couldn’t wait any longer. These two have been together for 8 whole years! By the time I had called, he was on his way to Marquette to pick up her ring. We settled on Little Mountain as the place he would propose, so I left a half hour before they’d plan to hike up there and hid in the flora. Upon their arrival, he led her to a clearing on the rock that overlooked Keweenaw Bay.
Josh + Maddie, I’m over the moon for you two, and I can hardly wait to witness you vows next fall.
