So sorry for the late posting, SW ladies + gents! Today I have a fun little story from a lovely SW reader. Kara ordered a copy of V3, which we sent out, but that was sadly returned to our office for unknown reasons a few days later. I emailed her, asking for another address, and she suggested we send it to her boyfriend. Which we did. You still with me?
I was tickled to receive the most adorable email a few days later from Miss Kara, and this is what it said:
I just wanted to let you know that I got the V3 yesterday (Saturday) morning. My boyfriend and I were walking out the door to enjoy a gorgeous fall morning in downtown Grand Rapids. I opened the door, and giggled with excitement as the magazine was sitting there on the door step. Steve was unusually anxious to get going, so he told me I would have to look at the magazine later. We stopped at the Starbucks on the corner, got our coffee, and continued down to the river. As we looked at the rive, he kissed my cheek. When I turned back around, a RING was on his pinkie finger, just staring right at me. He turned me around and got down on his knee! Long story short, after proposing (I said YES!), he surprised me by taking me down to Chicago for the night. I was thrilled to take along my SWM to read, not as a girlfriend, but as a fiancee. :) Perfect timing. Thanks again — it’s perfect!
Kara and Steve sent along several photos taken by their friend Jill DeVries, including a few from the exact spot on the bridge where Steve proposed. Aren’t they adorable?!
Congratulations, Kara + Steve, from the whole SW team! And, ladies who are anxiously waiting to be proposed to, you know what this means, right? Order a copy of SW and a ring might be right behind!
