In May of 2002 the new Star Wars (you know the romantic one when Amidala and Anakin get together) was released. Matt promised to take me to opening night. On May 15th we worked in my yard all day and he was suddenly too tired and didn't "feel" like going to the midnight showing. So I did what any grown-up girl would do--I sulked and pouted and told him I didn't "feel" like having dinner with him.
Lucky for me all of my other charming moments made up for my bad attitude that day and he proposed that evening.
Around 9:00 pm he called and asked me to see if he left his wallet in my car. Out on my deck there was a bunch of balloons and a clue that led me on a scavenger hunt. I went to the scene of our first date, the place where he met my parents, and the location of our favorite date. The clues led me back to my house where he had candles lit up everywhere, Unchained Melody playing, and The Matrix on TV.
I don't remember what he asked but I know what I said. YES!
