Our Story

We have been together for 8 months but have known each other for 10 yrs. When we 1st met, we had very different things happening in our lives, Alan was married and I was single and just starting to live life a bit after losing weight. Over the yrs we maintained our friendship, even when Alan moved to WA. When Alan separated from his ex wife, he contacted me and made his intentions clear, but I had a few personal issues to deal with. After a falling out and a roughly 8 month non contact period, after a comment on a mutual friends Facebook page, Alan got back in contact with me and we picked up from where we left off. After a driving trip from WA to Cairns to move back, Alan arrived back in Cairns on Show Day holiday and took me and my daughter out to the show, despite driving all day. That night Alan snuck in his 1st kiss, we caught up over the weekend and by the Sunday we had decided to give "us" a go. The next day Alan flew out for work, was to be 3 weeks but ended up being 4 week. Since then its been 2 weeks on and 1 off. After 8 months we are still going strong, and of course, engaged.

The Proposal

We organised to have My parents meet us at the Balaclava Steakhouse for dinner, with ring ready and a hidden small gerbera posie, Alan was going to propose, but not before asking my parents permission. I had to take my daughter to the ladies room, while I was away from the table, Alan asked my parents and they happily said yes as he showed them the ring. I returned to the table, and We ordered dinner and ate, with general chatter and drinks going down well. Alan disappeared for a few minutes long enough for my parents, my daughter and I to be at the table only to return and stand before me with the posie and tell me how much he has admired me for 10 yrs, then on bended knee he asked me to marry him, presenting me with my beautiful engagement ring. Naturally, after a bit of silence and shock, I said yes.
