I'm getting married, wish me luck!
« on: October 05, 2018, 03:41 PM »
In the 13 years of DonationCoder, I've been pretty reticent about talking about my own personal life.
It's not that I don't view everyone here as family -- it's just a general shyness and reluctance to talk about personal details.

But I wanted to share with my donationcoder family that I am getting married next week.

 :-* :-*

It's definitely not something I expected to be doing a year ago, but we found ourselves in a rather unusual situation after a couple years of dating where we were either going to be separated on different continents or try to make it work as a married couple, and we've finally decided on the latter.  After almost 50 years it's a very different kind of adventure we're embarking on, and I'm excited about it and wanted to share it with all of you...

(I hope this explains why I may not have been on the forum as much as usual over the last couple of months -- but I hope to be back to my normal activity later this month).

It's just a court wedding so don't expect any fancy photos, and there's no reception to attend, but here is a photo of us during a recent hiking trip (I'm on the left!):

Bonus points: Can anyone identify where the photo was taken?

Congratulations and best wishes! I'll throw some rice and bird seed in your honor!
Looks to me like the picture was taken out doors.  Did I win?   :D

Fantastic news for both of you, congrats!!

Don't fret about the almost 50 years part, that's a good age to start things... you probably have a pretty good idea of who you have become by now.  :D

Felicidades with your marriage endeavor. May it be blessed with happiness and good health, the two building blocks you really need to make anything work.

Is 50 nowadays not the new 40?
And is 40 not the new 30?

So...you're practically at the beginning of a good, long, happy life together.  :)

Huh - what? Well that explains it, I guess. Dereliction of duty due to personal circumstances being allowed to take priority? What the heck has got into you?!

Well done! Congrats to both of you.    :Thmbsup:

I hope to be back to my normal activity later this month.

How naive! This is clearly your first marriage...

Congratulations! I wish you both all the best.

G'day young Mouser lad,

WOW... Turn my back for a few minutes and you do this! We need names here for who is responsible.
Mr & Mrs Mouser... Yeah, it has a certain ring to it.


But seriously, what terrific news... congratulations and best wishes to you both. May the journey you have together be filled with beautiful surprises in every step, may your futures be carefree and full of love and happiness and may you both have mountains of fun along the way!

PS. I wouldn't have the faintest idea where the photo was taken, but it is great to have a a face to put to 'mouser' after all the years (I was a regular lurking reader for many, many years before my first post.).
As I am a keen photographer, I wonder if it was taken with an old school selfie stick (Tripod and time release.) or via a passing fellow hiker or a companion. Nice composition though whichever.

Once more, all the best wishes for you both.

Oh yes, I'm sure you don't really need it, but anyway... Lots Of Luck!

Michael

Thank you all so much for such warm wishes.. It meant a lot to me to receive such kind words from my extended family here.  And it was wonderful to hear from some old timers  :-*

We had a low-key court wedding -- just the two of us, and just the way we wanted it :)
