I am engaged! This weekend our town had our yearly wine festival, something I’ve been looking forward to since last year. We got tickets the day they went on sale in August, and I have been counting down since then, secretly hoping for a proposal. It was already one of my favorite days of the year, and he made it one of the best of my life. Both FI and I are huge Alan Rickman fans and fell in love watching Love Actually, which he incorporated into the proposal….I couldn’t have asked for a better day, proposal, or guy. I am so excited! On with the pictures!
Here is the cake! We walked up to it at one of the vendor’s tables, and I walked right past it at first! He called me back over and asked if I wanted a cupcake. I saw the cake and said “oh look! It’s like Love Actually, how cute!” by the time I said that, he was grabbing my hand and saying my name. I was still clueless!
Then this happened. It was so fast, I just kept thinking “OMG there are people around, what is happening? I don’t want to be in the way! Ok calm down, put your purse and glass down”
Here we are with the cake in the background…..
And here’s the ring!! 🙂
I definitely need to practice taking pictures of it! I am so thrilled and can’t wait to start planning!
