It happened August 11th, 2007. It started with breakfast in bed, Belgian waffles and orange juice. After that, I gave her a sheet of paper with the first puzzle on it and told her to get dressed and ready for the day. While she was changing, I left. Solving the first puzzle led her to a park near our apartment where we go walking fairly regularly, where I had hidden the second puzzle in a fence. She solved it quickly, but was so excited that she couldn't figure out how to read it to know where to go next (I had written it from bottom to top so she wouldn't be able to guess it easily). After calling me for a hint, she was off to another park for the next clue. As she walked up to the tree I had hidden the film canister at, she saw someone pick something up from it and pull the puzzle out. She asked him nicely if he had gotten it from the tree, and said that she was coming for it so he gave it to her (those dang muggles). This puzzle was a sudoku, with some boxes highlighted in different colors, which when read in order, gave the GPS coordinates to where I was.
After plugging in my lattitude and longitude, she came right to the park I was waiting at and I proposed. The ring is a 7mm Pearl with 3 small diamonds on each side. (Golda told me she didn't want a diamond long before the movie Blood Diamond ever came out.)
