For their engagement, it wasn’t a huge surprise for Libby. If you want to win at Poker, Libby advises that you play against Jack. It’s not his strong suit. In saying that, Libby is also super intuitive. As she walked home from work on Friday 23rd March last year, she had a feeling – her heart was pounding. She told herself not to be silly and not to expect a proposal, for fear of being disappointed (or rather peeved that her psychic abilities weren’t on form). There Jack was, waiting for Libby at the top of the stairs all dressed up. Libby remembers saying ‘you look good?’, a little nervous as if she was meeting Jack again for the first time. Meanwhile, Jack’s nerves were on super high alert. In his mind, it didn’t 100% quite go to plan, nevertheless he carried Libby across their living room to their window view of Rushcutters Bay. Jack bent down on one knee, spun a few mushy lines and opened the ring box. But she couldn’t see the ring, her eyes were all glassy and her eyesight was a complete blur. She said ‘Of course, I’ll marry you’. Finally, when her eyes came back into focus, she was totally blown away by the beautiful ring.
So from that moment of yes! We have arrived at this moment of yes! To where the journey of their relationship has brought all of us here today.
