- Wedding: March 2015
I’m engaged! On friday night (our 6 year anniversary) the love of my life proposed in the most perfect way I could ever think of!
First and foremost, thank you bees for listening to my vents and sharing your stories! I wish you all the best!!
On Valentine’s day I was a bit naughty and wrote him a poem that was hilarious, but basically went along the lines of “our love is like a cockroach” – I got the idea from the Oatmeal .. lol. So of course on our anniversary 2 weeks later that the code was a bit of payback from my Fiance hahaha
So on our anniversary my fiance (that is the first time I’ve typed that!! ** Joy**) gave me a card in the morning with a tonne of C, G, A & Ts on it, and another code that had pictures and numbers on it. I know nothing about science (I studied law – he is doing a PhD in Pathology) so he knew that I would be staring at it all day, but be stubborn and try all day to figure it out.
So we went out for dinner on our anniversary, went to the beach (all the time not expecting anything – standard anniversary type stuff) and then he drove to Uni and said that he was going to help me figure out the code coz there was no way I could figure it out without a tool they have there.
And then of course, the code – a DNA sequence – was translated and was a proposal – I turned around from the computer that uncoded the sequence and my fiance was down on one knee with a ring he picked himself! It was perfect 😀
Finally – a ring pic!
