"It was about 6 months into our relationship when I knew how this was going to turn out. She had an incredible ability to put up with my constant sarcasm and opened me up to new experiences that I now view as necessities in my life. Knowing what I wanted to do was easy, asking was the hard part. I'd never been so nervous in my life, but somehow managed to do a good job of playing it cool. I took her to where we had our first kiss. Then to where we first said 'I love you.' finally to a new spot where I got up the nerve to ask. I'm grateful all those places were on the same front porch. I'm even more grateful she said yes!"
