He was the sports editor. She was a metro reporter.
Their desks were just a few spaces apart at the office of Penn State’s student newspaper, The Daily Collegian. Naturally, that led to conversations, G-chats, and hanging out at office parties. Then, Kevin got up the nerve to ask Mandy to watch “V for Vendetta” at his apartment one night before winter break. A friendship sparked a romance and after dating through the remainder of their college years, they moved to Long Island for work.
An apartment and a little ball of yellow fur later, Mandy had to work on a Saturday. Kevin had plans of his own. He ran a special errand to the jeweler, the florist, and the grocery store. Putting his skills to the test, he made a nice dinner and set up the house for Mandy arrive home to. The doorknob jiggled, and that little ball of yellow puppy fur (named Maggie) met her at the door with a note attached to her collar.
“Come into the kitchen.”
Glowing candles, beautiful flowers, and the smell of dinner greeted her in the kitchen, along with the question of a lifetime. “Will you marry me?”
Kevin and Mandy, we are so excited for the two of you. Adam said this morning that he thinks your wedding is going to be so. much. fun. September awaits!
Meagan and Adam 🙂
