Today is our 8th anniversary. Here is an excerpt from an email I sent to a friend on 09 Sep 2002.
Yes, Julie IS a dork. Me being the little worry wart that I am, decided to ask/confront Rob about our little plans seeing that we hadn't talked about it for quite a while and if we did get married in December, we need to get this thing rolling!!! Holy FREAK, it's only 3 months away!!!!
So last Wed. I was planning on talking to him about it, just to see where he now stands. But HE actually kinda brought it up. After a lengthy discussion,(in which I practically begged him to propose) (I told you I was a dork!!!) he concluded that he would be proposing within the next month probably. But that's all he would say, afterall, he wants it to be a surprise...of course.
Whitney, I'm so excited. This is it. HE is IT!!!!
He's so good for me and he's everything I've ever prayed for. I love him and I want to marry him.
I’m SOOOOOOO glad I did!!
