- Wedding: October 2012
What a week, my partner (New Zealand for boyfriend) proposed on Monday night, it was very low key, I was in the kitchen cleaning up from dinner and he called me into the living room and proposed. He said that he had been planning this whole massive to-do but that the ring was burning a hole in his pocket and he just couldn’t wait. Well I was floored and of course said, “YES!” and we are planning on going out for a nice dinner to celebrate soon.
For the rest of the week I have been on cloud 9, just kind of floating along trying to figure out how I am going to be able to plan a wedding in Connecticut while we live in New Zealand! We have decided to have a slightly longer engagement to give all our friends over here enough time to save for the flights across. So we are thinking October 2012.
That wasn’t even the big event this week! We woke up Saturday morning to a 7.1 magnitude earth quake. Thank goodness we are both okay as well as all our friends and family, and our house and belongings have all survived as well.
Anyway, it has been a bit of a crazy week, a bit surreal really.
