Callie set me up on the sofa with Netflix, and made me stay out of the kitchen/dining room while she set up. (On Valentine's Day I accidentally ruined the surprise of the beautiful set-up she did for dinner, by trying to tidy up after the kids and walking into the dining room without thinking!) She put on a song I love (she'd made a playlist for me!) and invited me into the dining room. I walked into something truly beautiful - candles, champagne (Callie doesn't drink it...or like it...but I'd said we needed a bottle on the night we met because it's for celebrating), and pizza with heart-shaped pepperonis she'd cut out herself. It was so amazing, she completely turned my day around.
We sat down to our beautiful candlelight dinner, where I proceeded to talk. And talk and talk and talk. (She told me later I never shut up the whole time and she was worried I never would!) After dinner, she brought out my birthday cake, with candles spelling "I love you Mel" and I made a wish for...well, I guess I shouldn't say what I wished for -- but I will say, I'm definitely on my way to having it. :)
Callie opened the champagne and made a toast to us. She had a sip and made a face, so I told her she didn't have to drink it. I said I would finish the rest later while we were sitting on the sofa and she massaged my feet. Then I felt bad because she doesn't like to give massages, and said she didn't have to. Callie said "I'll give you a massage baby, if you do one thing for me." I responded with "Oh yeah, what's that?" (and luckily refrained from making an orgasm joke). Callie brought out a ring box and said "Will you marry me?"
After screeching and and covering my mouth in amazement and nodding furiously and shaking my hands around in excitement like a crazy person, I said gave the only answer I could possibly give - YES!
Suddenly the worst day ever became the absolute best day of my life so far. And here I'd thought the heart-shaped pepperoni was special!
