- Wedding: November 1999
My fiance and I went to Istanbul two months ago to celebrate our third anniversary. On our final day there, we went out for an anniversary meal at this lovely restaurant. We sat down on a sofa in the outdoor area and ordered the food.
I said “So, do you want your anniversary present now?” He got excited and said “No, I want to give you yours first!” He then opened his backpack and took out a small black box and put it in my hand… My heart was racing! I opened the box and saw a beautiful ring. He smiled and said “Will you marry me?”, and I said “Oh my god, YES!”
We then celebrated by drinking Turkish rake 🙂
It had crossed my mind that he might propose on the holiday, but it was still a surprise when he did. It felt so surreal when it finally happened, and it took a few days for the reality to sink in 🙂
