March 15, 1994 I asked one question that changed my life forever (most days I'll say for the better). I was a junior in college and had been dating the love of my life for nearly two years. It wasn't long after Lisa and I started dating that I knew she was the one for me.
It was a Tuesday night and Lisa had just gotten home from work. I had talked with my Sigma Nu brothers about getting some help with my proposal. They agreed and about 30 of us gathered outside Towers South on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University. We waited outside on that chilly night as one of my lifelong friends, also named Kevin (and who coined my Dexter nickname) convinced Lisa she needed to come downstairs. I think he told her he needed help getting my birthday gift upstairs and asked for her assistance. I don't know if she really bought it, but the two of them soon emerged from the building.

After several rounds of handshakes, hugs, and congratulations, Lisa and I made our way back up to her room. We may or may not have celebrated with some Boone's Farm wine. Like I said, we were both living on campus at the time and drinking alcohol, especially by minors is prohibited. I do not condone such behavior by any current or future student reading this post.

It's hard for me to believe it's been 20 years since I asked Lisa to marry me. The adventures we've shared since then have been incredible. There are plenty more in store for us. Babe, I love ya.
