Marry Me, Bike Week + Sarah’s Ride
Sending best wishes to the happy couple. Tim Tern and girlfriend Karlee, were engaged last week. We decided that proposals would be our topic this morning and there were some romantic gestures and others that didn’t go over so well. But, all in all, it seems like there are many different and creative ways to say “Will You Marry Me?”
Mmmm cake! All this wedding talk got me thinking about cake! Do you prefer gold, chocolate, marble, ice cream…? Check out what people are saying on Facebook.
