In September of 2001, Eric proposed. I was stranded in Amsterdam during September 11th and the following days. When I finally made it back to KC, Eric was waiting at the airport with an engagement ring. He had already asked my parents for their blessing, which they readily gave. I remember that I was just trying to get out of the airport and get home. He kept trying to stall. Now I know why. I said yes, of course and we were married one year later on September 20th.
I love you very much. It’s been a great 6 years.
