They were merely kids. She was the freshman girl who lived down the street from his old babysitter. He was the senior boy who made her heart skip a beat. Kim wears her heart on her sleeve, so it didn’t take a genius to figure out she liked Bryan. He finally asked her out and when he picked her up in his little S-10 truck she was head over heels. To this day, 10 years later – he still makes her heart skip a beat.
After ten years of dating, Kim was anticipating that next step any day. Bryan would always elude to the fact that he was content as things were. She was beginning to think they would be just dating for the rest of their lives, and told her sister in a conversation that the next step better be soon or they would need to have “the talk”. It wasn’t but a day or two later that Kim came home from a regular day of work, and errands, and an oil change when Bryan told her he had to go get something. When he came back upstairs he was immediately right there behind her, on one knee with a ring and calmly asked Kim to be his wife. In shock, her hands were trembling and they couldn’t even manage to get the ring on! Finally when things settled down and her ring proudly on her left hand they celebrated with a nice dinner at the restaurant where her sister works, and at the end of the meal she brought out a cake that said “He put a ring on it”.
The couple is planning a Feb. 2014 wedding and look forward to their forever!!!
