    Here's a copy of an email I sent out after my fiance, Marlon, proposed...


    So Marlon and I were packing on Tuesday night and I was tired so I said I was going to just go to bed around 1:30 and I'd finish in the morning. He said he wanted to stay up and finish packing. At about 4am I heard him coming into the bedroom and I woke up. Went to go to the washroom and there were 4 ring boxes on the counter. Asked him what they were and he said he didn't know. So of course I open one of them and there's a post it note inside that says 'Remember when you were late for our first date?'. So now I realize that he's proposing and I start sweating and yelled his name. I open all the boxes and there's a post it inside each ring box and each has a different memory/inside joke of ours. I come out of the bathroom and notice that there is a trail of boxes going down the stairs and into the den. I start opening them all and they all had post-its inside. He just watched me open all of them with a smile on his face. There were some funny ones in there too. (Like a stick person pic that said 'This is me waving at you'). There were boxes all over our place!! In the fridge, all over the floors, furniture, everywhere, and they all had notes inside. The trail went down the stairs to our garage and it ended there but there was no ring in the last one...so I was like 'Am I supposed to go into the garage?'. He said, "No, let's just go back to bed." I knew that that couldn't be the end of it because he wouldn't make me open all of those boxes (100 of them) for nothing!

    So we go back upstairs and there's another trail back into our bedroom that leads to the bed and up onto my pillow. They have notes in them too and the second last one says 'Will you marry me' and the very last one had the ring in it. I didn't cry I was just happy and excited and still half sleeping. My hair was a wild bird's nest and I was just wearing one of his t-shirts and I had racoon eyes cause some of my mascara didn't wash off.

    He was actually planning for it to all happen in the morning and not 4am but he made too much noise coming in the bedroom and woke me up.
    The ring's beautiful and exactly what I liked. Nothing's finalized yet but the wedding will be next July somewhere in the Caribbean.
    So that's the story! We're both really happy and I'm still somewhat in shock and now jet lagged. Haven't slept since he proposed!
