Our proposal

At the time of our engagement, we had been dating for 5 years. Of course the topic of marriage had come up multiple times (mainly by Jamie), and we had even looked at engagement rings. Jamie even told Jon if he was to propose, please don’t make it public. Well, Jon made the proposal in a very public way, but also kept it special between us.

We both work as Web developers/designers. Prior to our engagement, Jon received an email from a colleague noting Jon’s personal website was not working correctly. We both checked the site and saw it was working just fine and figured the issue was his colleague’s computer settings.

A couple weeks went by, and Jamie came home after a night class. She was exhausted and hungry. After putting on her PJs and pouring a big glass of red wine, she sat on the ottoman to check her email. Then, Jon popped in to say he thought he figured out why his website was not working for his colleague and asked her to view the homepage source code. Jamie said, "OK, I’ll take a look..."

In the code was the proposal:  

<ring class="open_box">
<form action="MAILTO:jgoodmedia@gmail.com" method="post" enctype="text/plain">
<p>Will you marry me?</p>
<input type="radio" name="marriageproposal" value="yes" /> Yes<br />
<input type="radio" name="marriageproposal" value="No" /> No
<input type="submit" value="Submit" />

Essentially it says:

Start proposal

Open ring box

Jon asking me a question: “Will you marry me?”

Options: Yes or No

Submit button

Jon then walked over, got down on one knee and asked Jamie to marry him. Of course she said yes!!

To top it all off, Jon then admitted he was video recording our engagement. So not only can Jamie go to www.jgoodmedia.com and view the source code to see his thoughtful proposal, but we also have the video to re-live the moment forever.
