A Special Announcement

Hey everyone! I’ve got some good news! I’m engaged! Matthew proposed to me June 2, 2004 (my daddy’s birthday!) I’m so happy! To give you the details, I’m going to copy and paste from matthew’s journal (he’s says it better then I ever could!)

We first met at a blood drive 2 weeks after 9/11. I thought it would be a great, original idea to propose to her after giving blood and it would give her a unique experience she could remember forever. I made the arrangements to donate at Community Blood Center in Dayton for June 2. It turns out that June 2 is her father’s birthday.

After we donated blood, we went out to my car, I opened the door for her, told her some things, then told her she should look in the glovebox. I did that with the first gift I ever gave her, the earrings she still wears everyday. Sometimes she opens the glovebox and sees there is nothing there and just says “no present… 😦 ” but tonight I put the empty box in there, and when she opened it and looked at me saying its empty, I had the ring in hand. So I asked her, and she was totally blown away. She said yes. We went to dinner afterwards but she didn’t eat her meal very much because she was so happy, smiling the whole time.

We are waiting until after we both graduate so you can think maybe may or june 2006 but nothing is set! I’ll keep updating though!

If you have any words of wisdom please feel free to leave them in the comment section! Thanks!!!

Yay! me so happy!
