I never deleted the text message strand between myself and my bride-to-be from the day we met almost three years ago. I was able to get all of the messages off my phone which I then inscribed in chalk throughout my neighborhood and through a park as a timeline. A friend helped me at about 7AM by shooting photos of the entire process. He then went back to my house where my girlfriend had woke up to find a note that simply read “get cute, and wait for further instructions”. He gave her a card that gave her the details of where to find the beginning of the timeline. I was obviously waiting at the end. SPOILER: she says, “yes”.
