Take #25 off the list! We’re finally engaged; after 5 and a half years as a couple and 4 years after he first started talking about forever, he asked.
I wasnt expecting it at all, I knew it was on the cards but i was convinced it’d be towards the end of the year. But Mr.Smarty Pants was able to surprise me on holiday in Budapest, on our first night. We’d spent the day exploring the Castle district and whilst in the hotel getting ready to go out for dinner he suggested that we go for a walk first. Clueless that I am, I thought “sure, we can build up an appetite!” So we walked from our hotel to the Danube, then along the Chain Bridge to the castle side where we walked down through a wee park that runs alongside the Danube between the river and the Castle. He’d timed it so well that a beautiful sunset was lighting the sky as we were ambling along. I was so busy admiring the gorgeous sunset and the light playing of the water that I completely didnt notice him steering me towards a bench until we were at it, without a single other person in sight. At this point we’d been walking a while and I was happy enough to sit and watch the scenery and just be happy when he puts his arm around me and starts telling me how much he loves me and that its been the best years of his life and so much other beautiful things, and that he thinks its time we made it official. Before I’d really figured out what was happening, he was down on one knee holding a ring and asking me “will you marry me?”
Once I found my voice and said (actually squeaked) yes, and then kissed him silly. It was beautiful, and perfect.
And then we went for a fabulous dinner and lots of champagne! I’m officially a Bee with a Fiance!
