this day nine years ago (yeah i know, i’m old) matt proposed to me at a restaurant in tulsa, oklahoma. i said yes and the whole place started applauding. i actually don’t remember a single thing he said to me, because i was in this amazing dreamland. my eyes were totally focused on the ring sparkling in the low light and when he stopped talking, i just said yes! thankfully, he wrote everything down and gave me the paper with his proposal written on it otherwise, i would just swear it didn’t even happen. he had dinner with my parents’ to ask their permission the week before and they already knew and were waiting for us when we pulled in the driveway to share the news. it was the best night ever. well, our wedding was better, but you know what i mean! so this many years later, we’re happier than even on that day. and every day i’m thankful that he asked!
