Luckiest girl in the world

Once upon a time, a journalism-studying girl went to an engineering party. Suffice it to say, she was pretty lost on what was going on…

Eventually, she found her way up to the kitchen where she also found a loaf of bread and some slices of cheese. Quickly, she did what was second nature: She got cooking. (For the record, the homeowners were happy about this!)

Before too long, a cute, pharmacy-studying boy also found his way over to the kitchen. Apparently he felt just as lost at the party as girl, but he seemed to also feel comfortable with her in the kitchen. So, the boy and girl got talking while some grilled cheese was cooking.

Even when the cheese ran out, the girl and boy kept talking.

Fast forwarding through a few dances, an exchange of phone numbers and a few dates, the girl and boy soon became inseparable.

Along the way, the girl learned that they boy had a rugged side…An adventurous side…

And a very dedicated side; He was even willing to complete a half marathon with her!

With more and more the girl learned about the boy, the more and more she loved. The funny thing is that, apparently, the boy also kind of liked the girl.

This became especially obvious to the girl one December night.

The boy asked her to go to dinner near the place in Kansas City that they had finished the half marathon together. She figured the date would just be like most others: wonderful and special. But it was more than that…

It was a proposal.

After finding words to accept the proposal, the girl couldn’t stop thinking one, singular thought: “I’m the luckiest girl in the world.”

She also couldn’t stop thinking about how much she wanted to shout, “We’re engaged!” Instead, she managed to remain a bit more civilized and just ask a group of people to take her picture with the boy.

“You asked the right people,” said the man she asked. “My fiance here is a wedding photographer…”

Once again, all the girl could think is, “I’m the luckiest girl in the world.”

So the people took a picture on the girl’s camera.

Unfortunately that didn’t turn out too well. Fortunately, the people offered to take a picture on their fabulous camera and email it to the girl later.

“I’m the luckiest girl in the world…”

The next hour was filled with happiness and phone calls. Lots and lots of phone calls.

The hour after that was filled with an excited recounting of the events to the boy’s family. Then there were more pictures…

And certainly more thinking, “I’m the luckiest girl in the world.”

And the funny thing is, that was very, very true.

I’m the luckiest girl in the world.
