The letter goes on to tell my boyfriend that the panda is holding his special order which I thought was the scarf. I turn around to hug him and tell him what a great anniversary gift the panda and scarf are. He then says, "Wait, did the special gift not come with it?"
I turn back to the panda a little confused, but move the scarf out of the way to find an inconspicuous white box decorated in stickers that represent me--teach, running shoes, basketball shorts with a 23 (for Michael Jordan), and wrapped in purple ribbon (my favorite color). I'm thinking, "Oooo, another gift!"
I open the box and see a jewelry box inside...in my head I had convinced myself that my boyfriend wouldn't propose to me on our anniversary, much less Valentine's Day.
