The couple met when Ben was working as a mechanic on Kylie’s ambulance. On the first date Kylie made steak dinner for Ben at her house. Of course, at this point Ben knew she was a keeper! Who wouldn’t be, right?? Kylie immediately fell in love with Rusty, Ben’s dog. She was also very attracted to his smile and laughter (Ben’s I mean, well, Rusty’s too). She admires his optimism and strength and the ability to shine bright even in the face of adversity. Ben loves Kylie’s positive energy, independence, a big heart.
Kylie makes Ben a better person. He loves that she pushes him and pulls him back when he needs it.
In turn, when Kylie is down, Ben reminds her of all her accomplishments and successes and encourages her to continue.
Ben says that he can look at Kylie’s smile for hours. He will never forget the way she looked at him when he proposed. Speaking of proposal, the way Ben proposed was very sweet. He tied the ring to Rusty’s collar and waited for Kylie to notice.
The couple made so many memories together already. Their favorite trip was a spontaneous adventure to Southern Illinois. Ben played “Bette Davis Eyes” song and sang and danced his heart out during their drive. Kylie says that moment reinforced how much her soul loved him and his free spirit.
With all the memories the couple made together, nothing can compare to the birth of their daughter. Kylie says watching Ben become a father is the best thing she’s ever experienced. He was her rock during both birth and pregnancy and that is something she will treasure forever.
