How He Asked

Kate went around the city of Chicago on a scavenger hunt, clue by clue, numbered 1-20. The clues gave her hints about where to go next and she spent the entire day revisiting several prominent date spots of ours. Included were clues that helped her pick out her outfit, along with a massage, a surprise hair styling with her best friend, and a cameo from two more friends at the nail salon. I got her a dress, shoes, and a necklace that she had noticed in passing before, and she put her outfit on and headed to a statue that we visited after our first date – where we talked for hours.

I was waiting there and she came walking up with several giant balloons (they were attached to the clues). I dropped to one knee, with my ring cam in hand, and I told her that she was everything I wished for, and that I wanted her to be my last first kiss. I asked her to make me the happiest man in the world by marrying me. And she said Yes!
