Bigger Isn't Always Better When It Comes to Love
He got down on one knee at King's, our favorite restaurant at the time.
We'd gone there for late-night breakfast dates. We'd gone there after prom, on random Saturdays, on lunch dates.
And so, on a Friday, he got down on one knee in the middle of King's while we ate dinner. There was no fanfare, no clapping, no flashiness.
It was just me and the boy I met at the art table, in the middle of a sleepy restaurant, thinking about forever.
I said yes, and he slid the ring on my finger. We continued on with our date because in reality, nothing had changed. We were still the same people we were before he got on one knee. We were still the couple who argued over stupid things, who laughed at the same jokes, who could know what each other was thinking with a single look.
We were still the couple who had been through ninth grade social, two proms, graduation, first dates, first dances, and first kisses.
Yet, we were also different. Because in that moment, we realized that the boy and the girl who met at the art table would grow up to be a married couple who chased their dreams together, who built a life together. With that ring, the next phase of our love story began, the simple, genuine love has led us where we are today.
