The Ninja Engagement Session
I have a dear friend and co-worker named Kim. She’s my office neighbor, an expert conversationalist about random things, owner of a great laugh, and a fantastic bowling buddy. So, one day last week, she asked me if I knew where the caricature artist at Downtown Disney was. Now, I’m not usually surprised at the random Disney questions I get asked, since I am a huge Disneyland buff, but that one was a little out there. However, I said that yes, I did know, and proceeded to tell her how to get there. She then asked if I could go down and take photos of an engagement that was going to happen Saturday at 2:00. I put it in my phone and said that I thought I could make that.
Saturday arrived, and that morning found me at the Memorial Service for the mother of a long-time family friend. The service took a little longer than I had anticipated, and I began to worry that I wouldn’t be able to make it to the engagement on time. I texted Kim with the bad news, but then, I was able to get home, grab my gear, and be at the DTD parking lot by 1:45. Then, just as I thought I was good to go, the Disneyland holiday traffic reared its ugly head. 500 ft from the entrance to the parking lot, and I was stopped. So close, yet so far. But by God’s grace, some quick lane changes, and a lot of hustle I made it to the aforementioned caricature kiosk. As tourist-y as I tried to look, I still got some curious looks from this couple getting their portrait done. Little did they know I was there for them! A few minutes later, I heard this beautiful Blonde exclaim, “I knew it!” And then:
She said yes.
Congratulations! May God bless your new life together in rich and amazing ways!
