Benjamin asked Kara to marry him on a cool Wednesday evening, October 29th, 2008 back on 3025 Laurel Creek Drive in Grapevine. Following a homemade bbq chicken dinner (which of course was accompanied by vegetables for Kara and not for Ben), Ben got out of his seat as if he were going to take the dishes to the kitchen and clean up. Instead, he pivoted on his foot and reached for something on the wine cart in the dining room. In the blink of an eye he was on one knee with a box in his hand. Meanwhile, Kara was still sitting in her seat trying to put two and two together. The just out the shower wet hair and glasses must have caused the brain to be a bit fuzzy. After the brain fog cleared, and the question sunk in past the sparkly diamond ring in front of her eyes, Kara said “Yes!”.
The Wedding Planning saga can all be found at the blog on kara-benjamin.com. This site will hold stories as our family grows day by day, after its fabulous beginning on September 19, 2009. The weather gods were shining down on us from above and we couldn’t have had a more beautiful beginning to our new life together.
