Kyle and Sara’s story actually began about 15 years ago, unbeknownst to them. At Marymount High School, Sara became good friends with her Manhattan Beach partner-in-crime, Carrie Frash, and spent a majority of her weekends in the idyllic beach city. There, she and her friends would hang out with the fun-loving Mira Costa High School boys, one of whom was the ever-polite Kyle Darling. In a time when the commonplace greeting “what’s up girl” was the acceptable form of speech between high school coeds, Sara was always surprisingly taken aback when Kyle would sweetly greet her with, “Hi Sara, how are you?” This (and his ridiculously fantastic last name) was something Sara always remembered about the blonde-haired, blue-eyed cutie. Kyle, meanwhile, insists he always had a crush on Sara (a claim she believes to be quite convenient given the current circumstances, but hey, it adds to the story).

Fast forward 12 years, 2 colleges, and stints in different cities, and Kyle and Sara found themselves reconnecting. Reliving the glory days of high school, Sara found herself venturing out in Manhattan Beach once again with the aforementioned Carrie Frash on a very fateful 4th of July weekend. They landed at Kyle’s house for one of his family’s famous BBQ’s, and Sara quickly discovered that Kyle was no longer a little cutie, but a handsome man with the same genuine charm that she had loved so many years before. Kyle was pleasantly surprised by this blast from the past and wasted no time laying his excellent manners on thick. It was pretty much game over for their single lives after that, and they have been happily playing life together ever since.
