The Engagement - March 4, 2010

The big day was spent with me running around and Kim having no clue with what was going on! I went to lunch with Kim's parents to have a little chat! That afternoon, I took Kim for a walk at White Rock Lake and at a predetermined location, I walked off the path with Kim's hand in mine - we were next to the lake and I shared all the things that make Kim the perfect God-sent woman for me, I got on a knee (while Kim's eyes became huge, and she let out a rather strange noise) I asked Kim to be my wife and spend the rest of our lives together. I kept talking - and realized that at some point I was going to have to let her answer and SHE SAID YES!!! The ring that I gave was partly from my Granny's engagement ring. I told Kim about the love and commitment that my maternal grandparents shared and that I wanted that for our relationship! (Granny and Gramps have a similar start to their relationship that ours does!) We then were greeted with a picnic with some of our friends...the calls, and planning now can commence!!
