A happy story

Once upon a time, (well a couple of weeks ago actually) Ruth and Tony went on holiday to Scotland.
Tony had promised to cook Ruth an anniversary dinner. They both got dressed up, Ruth even wore a dress!
The Proposal
Tony opened a bottle of champagne
The Proposal
Cooked some delicious squid for starters
The Proposal
Mouthwatering Thai Green Curry with prawns for main course
The Proposal
For pudding, Tony handed Ruth a very heavy box...
Inside were lots of sweets, but on the top were some very special sweets...
The Proposal
Tony got down on one knee, asked Ruth to marry him, and gave her a beautiful diamond ring. After Ruth realised Tony was waiting for an answer, she accepted.
The Proposal
They were both very happy and are now planning a wedding!
