A short while ago I posted requesting advice regarding a future marriage proposal plan. Big huge thanks to everyone who helped me out there!
Well sure enough on Christmas day, my GF got what she thought was just a card from me. Opened it to be shocked at discovering the two airline tickets with a destination of Finland inside.... Worryingly she was even more shocked when I told her it was for the both of us and not a trip away shopping with one of her girlfriends!
So off we went, snowboards in tow for what she thought was just a few amazing days on the slopes...
Next surprise - She found out on New Years Eve morning that I had booked us on a trip to see the Northern Lights at midnight. Cue many brownie points for me
Biggest shock, there actually was Norther Lights visible!! Truely amazing spectacle btw
So come midnight under the Aurora and after a big soppy kiss from me, the time arrived... After many, many, many Dutch courages earlier in the evening, I manned up and got down on one knee, the whole schebang doing the shaky handed, croaky voiced most important question of my life "Will you marry me?"
And she said yes!!!!!!!
At that point I thought my life couldn't get any better....
A few seconds after this wonderous revelation, I suddenly very much regretted the Dutch courages taken to get to that point as I proceeded to drop the very expensive ring in a big pile of snow in the dark!!!!!
Future Mrs Peaks saw the funny side and after ten minutes of sifting through snow, I finally placed the ring on her now very numb, turning slightly blue finger and ave her another big now chattery teethed kiss!
What better way to welcome in 2013
