A True Romantic

What a hot and oh so slow day. On more than one occasion today I have wondered what the heck am I doing here. Retail is pretty slow in the summer- some days very slow- today was one of those days but...
in walked a new friend and I was glad I was here.

I can't tell you much about this new friend; he is currently involved in a top secret mission and I'm glad to say Paper Crown is playing an oh so small part in something HUGE! This young male has been in a couple of times over the past few weeks buying paper, stickers and ribbon- basically girl stuff. When we get guys in here they are usually lost, buying a gift certificate or under the age of 8 and forced to come with mom. This fellow was none of the above. My curiosity got the better of me and I finally asked what he was working on. " A scrapbook for my girlfriend ," he replied with a twinkle. " It has pictures of both of us when we were young and then pictures since we have been dating and a few blank pages to be filled later."  I thought I knew what those blank pages were for but of course I had to ask to make sure. Our mystery man is proposing on about page 20 and the last few pages are for the celebration  following the question popping and the wedding.

It was just too sweet. We have been watching this guy circle the store for weeks picking out the perfect paper for the big day. Today was just a few last minute items to perfect his book. He then told me how he was going to give her the book- after probably the longest meal he has ever had and a stroll to a private gazebo. This boy has been planning a lot- I mean really a lot! You should have seen his grin- big as Dallas!

He promised to call next week to tell me how it went and to bring by the book- fat chance, his fiance isn't going to let go of that book- ever! What a great job I have!


  1. What a great guy. And such a sweet story.

  2. Oh, gosh, what a treasure of a guy! So sweet! We missed you this morning, but it's oh, so evident about why you were in the shop! Let the Thursday morning girls know! Hugs and kisses to you, girlie girl.
