One of the BEST things about the Lehigh Valley is that it is close to everything. You want the mountains? We have the Pocono’s with the Appalachian Trail. You want big cities? We have New York City and Philadelphia just 90 minutes away. Over here we get the best of both worlds. Adam and I, however are more outdoors folk. The Pocono’s is great for hiking and waterfalls. It’s pretty much a hop, skip, and a jump away.
About four years ago Adam wanted to plan something special for my 23rd Birthday. We do not usually make a big deal out of Birthday’s and aren’t big into celebrations. Red flags went up. Wait, we are DOING something for my Birthday this year? This seems odd, but I’ll go with it. In my mind, all signs pointed to an engagement, but I pretended to know nothing. He started researching waterfalls. I love waterfalls and hiking, probably more than anybody else, but during the winter in the Poconos, he had to find ones that were easily accessible (there was still snow on the ground!)
I love a good engagement story, what about you?
