Happy Anniversary!!

Six years and four months ago Scott got down on one knee and our whole lives changed for the better. March 26, 2003 I woke up ready to go to work and found a rose on my car door with a note that said "I want you to have a great day". As I looked around the parking lot and saw no one I headed to school and on my door to my classroom I found another rose and note that said "I love you very much". Through out the day in random places I kept finding roses and notes that said something sweet. Random people would come up and even hand me the rose, but still never seeing the person that was giving them. My principal came over the announcements that day and asked if "Ms. Bailey could come down to the front office and get a rose". As you can imagine the whole school was enjoying all of this.  I went to Scott's house that night because we were headed to dinner at our favorite restaurant since he was headed out of town the next day. Scott's niece had stopped by right before we left asking if we could go to the park before dinner. Not wanting to let the 2 year old down that was begging her uncle we said of course. When we got to the park Scott took me over to a certain bench where we had talked for hours one day. He gave me the last rose with a note saying "Mari I truly love you with every little bit of my heart and soul. My love and admiration for you has grown each and every one of the 445 days we have been dating. That date was January 5th 2002 and you remembered it well so let me give you a new one March 26, 2003 the day that...." and when I looked over Scott was on one knee. After the emotion of it all we headed to our restaurant and as I walked in I was greeted with some great friends and family. Scott had put together a surprise engagement party. Although it was a perfect day, August 1st 2003 was even more so. I married the man of my dreams. I love you Scott and I am excited to be celebrating us today and look forward to spending the rest of our lives together.
