What a fabulous and romantic story it is!! It was the Saturday before Easter and I went out shopping with my friend for the morning. Little did I know that my FI was home plotting and scheming the biggest surprise of my life! When my friend dropped me off, I noticed that the garage door was open, which was not normal. As I walked towards the house, I saw some white powder "paw prints" and a carrot on the carpet. I remember thinking to myself, "What is this mess out here?!" There was a note taped to the door that said "Julie". I opened the note and it read: "For something to eat... How about something sweet... Like a treat!! Just follow my feet!" I proceeded to follow the "bunny trail" into the house assisted by carrot arrows to guide me... I came upon the pantry where there was a chocolate bunny with the second note that read: "Now that you've had a snack... No need to turn back... Just follow my track!! Keep on going... Don't think it's silly... Try and find the Easter Lilly!" I continue to follow the trail into the bedroom where I found the Easter Lilly with the third note that read: "You've followed my path... Right from the start... Now you've enlightened my heart! Grab a flower by the stem... Hold it until you find a gem :-)" A bit unsure what it meant, I continued to follow the trail into the "New York" room where I found Mark sitting and waiting for me. He said to me, "I made you an Easter basket", I said "I see that." So I started looking through the eggs... I opened a few of the wrong ones first, but when I found the right one, there was the most beautiful ring I have ever seen inside it!! Mark turned me around, got down on one knee and said to me, "Julie, Your my high school sweetheart, my girlfriend, and my best friend, and there is nothing more that I would love then to continue our journey together as husband and wife. Will you marry me?" I was crying and could barely breath... of course neither could he!! :-) And of course I said YES!!!!!
