I was bummed out the week before Valentines day 2004 because my boyfriend was scheduled to work from 11-9. His response to my aparent dissaray was "Paua, we don’t need a day to tell eachother how much love we have for one another." So, on Friday the 13th of February, the love of my life had 2 dozen gorgeous red, white, and pink roses delivered to my office. I didn’t think anything of it, because I thought he was trying to compensate for missing Valentine’s day.
After work, I arrived at my apartment at 10:00 p.m. Friday and he met me outside of my door asking me to enter with my eyes closed. At this point, I still didn’t think anything was up because we were supposed to exchange presents that night and I assumed he had a big present for me (little did I know that the present I was about to recieve would change our lives forever)!
I entered hearing our song in the background (Unchained Melody) and when I opened my eyes, I was taken aback by the 40 or so tea candles and additional 4 dozen more roses in 6 vases placed lovingly around my home. He walked me to my bedroom and asked me to open the door where I was greeted with more flowers, candles, sprinkled rose petals draped on the bed with 3 mylar balloons saying "Paula, Will You, Marry Me?" I turned around to him on bended knee asking me to be his wife. I screamed "YES" enthusiastically and began tearing up.
