Bryant and I met via Christian Mingle last fall after I'd signed up for the site in late July. I had witnessed quite a few successful online dating relationships develop into marriages, and after attending a friend's wedding (they met via Christian Mingle) and hearing a few other success stories there, then receiving a promotional e-mail offering a hefty discount on the membership fee (you know how I love a good bargain!), I decided to give it a shot.
It's been so much fun to share our news this past week. Thank you to those of you who have already shared your excitement in various ways! My students, especially, have had some pretty priceless reactions and comments. ☺ One 2nd-grade-boy whose mom had shared the news with him prior to his lesson said before starting to play his first assigned piece, "So, who is he?"
As is probably obvious, I could go on and on about how great it all was and has been...and about how much I love my fiancé. I'm going to be done gushing, though (and hope to get a post about the rest of the amazing NYC trip written, at some point...and maybe one about long-distance relationships...and God's perfect timing), and let someone else do the talking for a bit.
I asked Bryant if he'd like to share anything as part of this post, and he graciously agreed to drop you all a line, or two. I've never had a guest writer on "The Scoop," but who better to be the first than the man with whom I'm going to spend the rest of my life? ☺ Here's what he had to say:
Those of you who have known Kensy for a while know how wonderful she is. I have had the privilege of getting to know her recently and have come to realize what an amazing person she is…which is why I asked her to marry me last week. She said YES!!!! I am very much looking forward to spending the rest of my life with her when October finally arrives. Haha.
From the first date walking around the Haymarket, to the Giant Piano, and all the calls, emails, text messages, and face-to-face time in between, I have been learning how great Kensy is for me. I never understood the people that said, '"When you know they are the right one, you just know…" Now, I do understand that statement, and I am so grateful that God brought her into my life.
