- Wedding: November 2013
I have just returned home after 5 wonderful weeks of travelling Europe with my boy. Anddd…. we got engaged!
We were in Barcelona and had just been out for a lovely dinner at a restaurant by the beach. Whilst we were sitting there contemplating dessert, he kept telling me how full he was which I thought was strange because he had a smaller meal than me! I generously asked him if he would like to take a walk along the beach to walk the food off, which he said would be great.
So we are walking along, but the beach was full of people sitting on the sand, drinking and swimming in the ocean. Not exactly quiet! But we spot a fishing pier and he said did I want to walk along it. So we did, but as we are walking back he stops, gets down on one knee and says and says “OK so I know I made you wait far too long for this and I am sorry about that, but I love you and will you marry me?”
Then he presented me with a stunt ring because he was a bit too scared to take the real one on the plane in case our bags got lost!
We had some cocktails to celebrate the engagement, and kept it to ourselves for a few days 🙂
We got home on Monday and I finally got to see my pretty ring! It is a gorgeous pear diamond, with a pink sapphire halo and I simply cannot stop staring at it!
Thankyou to all the bees who have given me lots of advice as I waited! I seriously never thought this day would come, yet here it is!!
