Feb 1 I headed back to New Zealand for a few days – and to bring Tiernan home to Manila.
On Monday night we walked up One Tree Hill in Auckland to burn off a large round of Mongolian BBQ and check out the stars. We were matching up the Southern Cross and an upside down Orion to an app on Tiernan’s phone.
He then asked me to see if I could match up the moon to the app screen. While my back was turned he quickly set himself up on one knee. When I turned around I was pretty surprised – mostly by how well he’d distracted me – and he asked me to marry him.
I said that I would.
Then we took this picture with Auckland in the background and made the half hour walk home!
On to Singapore!
