So so sorry ladies, I’ve kept a lot of you waiting to hear what happened! We are traveling and unfortunately we went somewhere with no Internet for a week after getting engaged!
But, here’s the story!!
Last Thursday, 26th July, we were heading out for our first day of exploring London. We had a look at the National War Museum, visited the Big Ben, walked through Westminster Abbey, and checked out Buckingham Palace. The sun was shining, it was warm, light breeze, and we were having the perfect day.
Then we went to Hyde Park and my world was flipped upside down! We walked through the beautiful park to this absolutely stunning lake. There were swans and ducks and a gorgeous bridge.
FI hired an old-style row boat, peasants us out into the middle of the lake, and proposed!!!
It was more incredible and perfect than I’d ever imagined! The ring is amazing! Big sapphire in the middle, surrounded by 12 diamonds on a gold thin band. Perfect. I can’t upload pics for a while unfortunately.
We then went out to a posh restaurant for dinner and drank champagne, and then called our family and friends to tell them the news.
At sunset we went on the London Eye, then spent the night laying in the grass hugging, watching the lights of London.
It was indeed the most amazing day of my life. We are so happy and do excited. It’s amazing how natural it felt, it was meant to happen.
A week later and I literally can’t imagine not being engaged!! It’s crazy!
Ladies, it’s worth the wait. Keep calm. It will happen when the time is right.
Thanks for all of your support and keep those chins up! Waiting is such an exciting time!
