Valentine's Day 2006

    The very first Valentine’s Day Tim and I spent together was two weeks after he got home, and our… second? official date. He gave me a necklace that he brought home from Mexico. Which, when I thought about it, meant that he’d been thinking about me while he was still there, and planning the gift for when he got home. That made me like it even more than I already did. When I got to his house he gave me a gi-normous box of European Chocolates, and then a small white box with orange ribbon tied around it. And inside the box, I found… I’m wearing it today, and it made me think of that Valentine’s Day a few years ago. Later that night we crashed a V-Day dance with AJ and his date, and on the way home in the back seat of Watson (the most romantic place ever) we did NOT make out, but he DID tell me that he wanted to marry me. Which I count as the first (technically speaking) proposal of many. *sigh* Sorry Tim, but there’s just no topping that Valentine’s Day. It’ll always be my favorite one.
