After dating for more than five years and being close friends for nine, my boyfriend and I finally sealed the deal when he proposed one memorable evening on a business trip to New York.
After 13 years in advertising, I should have known that Aaron would have proposed with a giant projection screen in Union Square. It truly was nothing short of spectacular! While everyone knew about it in advance, from the valet to the bartender from the night before, it was a fun moment. And despite the cold and rain, and a slight panic that his crew of three would not be able to get the projector working, it was almost perfect - just like us.
When the words lit up in the square asking me if I would marry him, he dropped to one knee and the man of so many words was ultimately at a loss. He simply asked, "Kim, I love you. Will you marry me?"
Beyond him being my best friend, I am lucky to have someone who works so hard to make things so special.
