for over nine years. Maggie was the first person I had ever taken
to a company Christmas party. We had a great time. That night we
had our first kiss. It was the best kiss I have ever had.
Sometime before Christmas we decided to plan a Spring break
trip to Oklahoma. It was my first chance to meet her Dad
and two brothers. We were both really excited.
This year Maggie and I had a "special" Valentine's day. We
celebrated on February 13 (Maggie had a church program
on the 14). That morning I brought flowers to her classroom. Her
kids weren't exactly sure why this "guy" was bringing teacher flowers
during class. It was kind of fun for me. Kids whispering
That evening, I picked her up and we had
dinner at the same place
we had our first date (Spaghettini Italian Grill). I gave her a "nice"
pair of diamond earrings (53 ct total wt). She gave me the sweetest
card I have ever received and a "BIG" chocolate kiss. I told her all
I wanted was a card and a kiss. She is so funny.
On Valentine's day, I stopped by her classroom and dropped off a
"Big" (2 X 3') card and box of candy. It was a great day for
both of us.
During our trip to Oklahoma - I asked Maggie to marry me. At
first she said "Yep", but later she said "Yes, she would be happy to
be my wife". I asked her the question on the front porch of the house she
grew up in (Tulsa, OK) on April 11, 2001. It was a cold windy night at
about 10 pm. I had just asked her father's blessing
about a half an hour before. She was a "little" suprised.
She really liked the ring : 14 kt Ladies wedding set with side
stones round brillant cut diamonds 1.01 carat in channel setting.
Round diamond center stone total weight 0.78 carats. Clarity VVS2,
G color. I bought it by myself. As far as I can tell, I did a "Great" job.
