So I might have gotten slightly engaged….

You may recall that this time last year I met a very lovely lady and becoming somewhat attached to her. On the 29th of January it was our 1 yr “official” anniversary, which we spent in Wellington.

I realised there’s nobody that I’d rather spend the rest of my life with than her, so last night I asked Lisa to marry me. And she said yes. :’)

Whilst this ring is not as pretty as a Linux server, I think Lisa did approve of this purchase more.

I love you Lisa – spending the rest of my life with you is an amazing, scary, exhilarating feeling all at the same time.

Realising that there’s someone in my life who cares about me as much as I care about them just continues to amaze me every day and I’m so, so happy I met you.


So yeah, I now have one very surprised but happy fiancé and about a million tweets from followers, friends and family. As we were in Wellington for the weekend, it worked out well, being able to see and catch up with many of our friends and my side of the family. (Thankfully she said yes, it would have been a very awkward weekend otherwise). ;-)

Still a lot of stuff to figure out and sort out, I had kind of assumed at this stage my work was done,but turns out there are weddings, life plans, cake testing and getting something other than seans to wear to sort out. :-/

We haven’t really made plans yet, but we’re thinking engagement of at least a year, before we make that final step (or she’ll get sick of me and leave by then and I’ll become (more of) an alcoholic reclusive geek), so it would be a wedding in early 2013. Unsure where, but sounds like Wellington or Hawke’s Bay

I know a few of you want to know how it came about, how I proposed, etc, I’m hoping Lisa will blog that in the next day or two along with some horribly cute couplesy pics once we get someone to take a pic that’s more public appropriate than the content of my phone’s camera.

I’m sure I’ll blog something more in the next few days, just wanted to get something up ATM. :-)

    I am so thrilled you have decided that Lisa is the person you want to spend your life with. When I saw you two in Brisbane last October I could see you both were wanting to be with each other so much.

    I hope you both have a lasting engagement and I wish you all the best for the future.

    Again, congratulations to the both of you!

    I swear I did it more romantically than Lisa makes it sound :-P

    But if you want her details see:

    I described it just fine. It was all a blur cause I was crying and overly excited. AS YOU DO.

  7. Congrats Jethro and Lisa! I wish you all the best for your engagement. :-)
