- Wedding: June 2015
… last weekend! Or should I call him FUTURE HUSBAND OR FIANCÉ?!
Friday afternoon 2nd of May: I am just about to sit down on the couch, when I heard my boyfriend enter the house. He had two suitcases in his hands and told me:
“Be ready in two hours, because we’re going on a trip!”
“What? But, what? But I have to work this weekend!”
“No honey, that’s all been taken care of”
So we drove off for a three hour roadtrip until we ended up here. A ‘cosy small white hotel’ he said:
WHAT?! This was a German castle, which is also a hotel, where it turned out we would spend two nights! We spent the rest of the weekend visiting the German town of Cologne (we’re Dutch, country next to Germany), and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Then on Saturday night, we had a reservation at a THREE-starred restaurant at the castle, which is currently number 12 on the list of best restaurants world wide! Wow! Here we had an exquisite 19 (!) course dinner:
And then, right after the seventh course, he grabbed my hands, and started talking to me quietly. It was all very private despite being in a restaurant. He gave a short speech on how he loved me, our past and our future together, and then he got on his knee and popped the question. I can’t even remember that part and I don’t remember saying yes either! It just went by so quickly, but it was lovely!
The two of us, right after the proposal:
Me, beaming with love and happiness:
And the ring? It’s SO pretty! It consists of twelve diamonds (my lucky number) and 1 sapphire. Which is exactly what I had hoped for, I love blue. Turns out he had been texting with my sister for weeks, and all of my family already knew everything! 🙂
The ring is just so pretty! I never thought I’d be that girl who keeps looking at how it shimmers in the sun, but I just can’t help it!
The next day, we visited my family.. They already knew about the engagement, but we went over for champagne and cake to celebrate and had a great time! 🙂
So now we’re engaged! We’re thinking of a May wedding next year, exactly a year from now.
