A year ago today, the sweetest man asked me to marry him. He took me to the overlook in Weehawken on a sunny Sunday afternoon. As we enjoyed the view of the New York City skyline and talked about our future together, I was surprised by an acoustic serenade of Train’s “Marry me.” The crooner was Kurt’s very talented friend and beside him sat his then-girlfriend, now-fiance with a video camera. Kurt dropped to his knee, presented me with a gorgeous cushion cut solitaire, and asked me the easiest question I ever answered, “Will you marry me?” Through my uncontrollable giggles, I said “Yes… Yes…”
The whirlwind year that followed will forever be a reminder that with love the sum is greater than its parts.
I love you, Kurt.
