Katie and Brian
My family is from St. Joseph, MI. St. Joe has always been a special place for me and my family. Memorial Day weekend 2017, Brian and I ran the Solider Field 10-mile race in Chicago that Saturday morning and left shortly after to head to St. Joe for a weekend away. When my grandparents passed away, my family had a bench dedicated to them with their names on a plaque on this bench on the beach. I always visit this bench when in town and we decided to spend the afternoon reading and relaxing on the bench that afternoon. I started to get hungry and kept bugging Brian so we can go get food. He starts taking too long a Time and tells me he has to put his jacket on( it was 60 degrees and sunny outside). I start giving him a hard time and next thing I know he is down on one knee in front of the bench proposing. I finally got my composure enough to say YES. It was just the two of us and the fact that he included my grandparents bench made it the best proposal I could have ever asked for!!!
