I have been with Matthew for two and a half years. We had talked about getting engaged, but I never thought that I would get the proposal that I did!

We have set the date for 2004. We had our engagement party on Saturday and have been very lucky with all our presents.
I thought that romance was dead! Obviously not!!!
