Hey everyone, I posted a few days ago I found out my boyfriend was proposing and how I was nervous/excited I was. I was still extremeley surprised and amazed by the thought he put into it.
It started off by meeting my friend in town and heading down to my estate agents to get the keys off them as we were moving in the following day. Amongst other documents that given to me there was an envelope with my FIs handwriting on that said ‘For my new flat mate’. The estate agent said ‘This is something we give all tennants to read, I know its a bit weird but you should read this today’. I thought it was odd but once I got the keys to the flat I sat down and read it. It was my FI introuducing himself and how he wanted me to get to know him. I must mention that the day this was happening was a year to the day of us having our first date where we got to know each other a year earlier. On the letter he wrote that he loved ice cream and told me to go down to the ice cream palour near to where our new flat is and gave me a fiver to grab an ice cream. I thought it was strange but cute so we did just that.
When we went to the ice cream palour and we sat down another letter came my way from a woman who was working there. I was told to read it. I opened it up getting very confused at this point and it was another letter from my FI saying that the second thing I should know about him is that he loves guitars and should head to the guitar shop to recieve my next letter, which is also near our new flat. I was excited but so confused as to what was going on. My friend was clueless also (apparently)…
When we finished our ice creams we went down to the guitar shop I asked for my next letter from the man and was given it along with a beautiful white rose! The next letter read that ‘the third thing you should learn about me is that I love buying gifts for people’ and was told to go to Thomas Sabo in town where I should get my fourth letter! At this point I started to realize that I was on a little treasure hunt and thinking that he was going to propose to me hopefully. When we reached Thomas Sabo I was given a bag with another letter and a charm for my charm bracelet. Inside the letter it told me to go home and open the gift when I was ready to meet him for our anniversary meal later.
So we got home and I waited around for a good few hours, getting ready and talking to my friend about what was going on. She was persistant she new nothing (ha!). I was suspicious but totally clueless and just couldnt wait to see him.
Once I had got ready I opened the charm that was in the gift bag that I was given and inside was an engagement ring… charm that was for my charm bracelet. I knew then what was about to happen and never felt so many butterflies in my stomach!
My friend gave me the fifth letter and told me she knew everything and had been apart of the plan all along! The letter read to meet him at Jamies Italian restaraunt at 7pm that night for our meal. So I did exactly that with my friend with me.
We got to the restraunt and I was directed up stairs where I saw my amazing boyfriend and all my friends waiting for me!
I was completley shocked so I ran to hug/kiss him straight away! He told me to wait a sec as he had something to say… He told me how much he loved me and got down on one knee and got a box out which had my beautiful engagement ring inside.
I managed to get out a ‘yes’ and nodded with a huge grin on my face. We hugged/kisssed and I noticed he was shaking as he put the ring on my finger!
Everyone clapped and we had an amazing meal where the waitresses gave us free champagne to celebrate.
It was such an amazing day and still cant get over how much thought he put into it. Even though I found out it was definietly more than I could ever expect.
So happy and excited to be marrying my best friend in the world!
