Engaged for 7 years....Hooray for that!!!

Feb. 16th, 2001

Today marks the 7th anniversary of our engagement. That was such a fun day! I remember my mom and I were on our way to lunch when we passed Daniel in his Geo Metro Convertible. He flagged us down and we had him meet us at Cafe Rio. There was something suprisingly huge in his pants. I tried not to notice but it was kind of like, "hey, is that a ring box in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?" He tried to contain his excitement, but totally couldn't, it was so cute. That night he took me to Timpview High School, where we first met and he proposed to me. I'm pretty sure I jumped on him and almost knocked him down as I yelled "YES"!!! We almost killed the kid that was riding his stupid motorized scooter around the place and then we rushed to my house to show off my ring. I got my yearbooks out that night, cause I just thought it was so necessary to start my wedding lists right then. That is when I found what he wrote in my Freshman yearbook, here it is:

"Natalie, I'm really sorry that things didn't work out this year, but I want you to know that someday they will. Also thanks very much for caring about me when I was sick, and for that card. I want you to know that the reason I didn't go out with you wasn't because you weren't cute (pretty), but because I didn't want to go out with anyone. I really like you, I think that you're really pretty. I'll write to you. Let's do something in the summer. Love, Daniel Bobik"

Happy Engagement Anniversary Babe!! I love you!

I think the thing that was so funny about this day was the fact that Daniel thought he fooled you for so long. He had no idea that after he pulled you over in the Geo you told me that he was probably going to give you the ring that night. Good try Daniel! Hey, by the way, I am so thankful that Daniel is my son-in-law!!!!!!
