Hi bees! I’m making cocktail napkin fun facts about me and Fiance for the wedding. I have 5 facts, but I’m not sure how to word the last fun fact. I have limited space on the napkin, but both of these options will fit. I know this seems totally unimportant, but I want it to be perfect. Which sounds better?
And, I promise to post pics of the napkins once they’re all done!
Option #1 – David’s parents were engaged during a snowstorm in March 1979. Exactly 32 years later, David proposed during a March snowstorm too.
Option #2 – David proposed during a snowstorm last March… exactly 32 years after his parents’ March snowstorm engagement.

I like #2 because it makes the napkin about the two of you and not about his parents.
ETA: How about: David proposed in March of 2011 during a snowstorm, exactly 32 years after his father’s March snowstorm proposal.
…here’s another Edit suggestion to include punctuation and one more word – hope it fits!!: David proposed in March of 2011, during a snowstorm; it was exactly 32 years after his father’s, March, snowstorm proposal.

“David proposed during a snowstorm March 2011 as did his father in March 1979”.
Something to that effect.
