She washed her hands under the faucet, being careful not to splash any paint on her new kitchen counter. They had spent all day painting in their new house. They were so excited after picking up the keys and signing the official paperwork that morning, they had gone straight to the paint store. Now, several hours later, she was sore and tired, but Kurt thought a celebratory dinner was in order and so she was cleaning up. A few hours later, she slumped into the seat of his car, feeling the weight of the day on her shoulders. He reached over and squeezed her hand. “I forgot something at the house, do you mind if we stop quick on the way back to the apartment?” he asked. “No, that’s fine.” she replied. Arriving at the house, he convinced her to come in with him. They walked down the dark entryway and into the living room. She excused herself to go to the bathroom. He took the opportunity to find a few lamps and plug them in around the living room. As he heard the door open, he quickly moved to the center of the room, and there, on the crinkly dropcloths, he took one knee and held out a ring.
Kari and Curt are planning a gorgeous fall wedding in Lake Geneva. The warm colors and mild temperatures we are sure to be surrounded with that day suit their personalities so well.
