how we met
Jane and I first met after I had volunteered to pore softball way back in high school. It certainly wasn’t love at first sight by any stretch, but as the years went on and our friendship grew we became closer and started spending more time together. Eventually we fell in love and 11 years later we are still going strong!
how they asked
We had designed the ring together but I had been sitting on it for about 18 months u til the perfect moment. One weekend we went to our favourite camping spot above a beach on the Tiwi Islands. I was so nervous pacing up and down instead of relaxing. We went for a long walk along a pristine white sandy beach, and while I tried to time the proposal with the sunset over the water, the plan was thwarted by two huge bush pigs! We had to run back towards camp so that the pigs wouldn’t chase us. On the way back, and once the coast was clear I got down on one knee and popped the question. We enjoyed a wine by the fire that night happily in love.
