Oh wait... He did. 10 years ago today, in fact. It was a rainy December day. We went to the Evergreen Theater in Tanasbourne and saw "What Women Want" (you know the one, with Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt... love that movie!) Then Jake drove me out to Seaside, where we played games at the arcade and then walked along the beach. It seemed we were the only ones out there (probably because we were!) It was rainy and windy, and no sane person wanted to be outside in that weather. We didn't care, though. We were in love. We chased each other on the sand, wearing our blue hoodies. Then Jake wrapped his arms around me and we stared out into the ocean. (Little did I know, he was fumbling around in his back pocket for a box. A very special little box.) As Jake presented it to me, and flipped the box open to expose "the rock", it fell onto the sand. Oh CRAP. He quickly retrieved it, blew the dirt off of it, then asked me to be his woman forever.
Love you, babe.
