We got engaged yesterday 16.12.2018 I’m over the moon and can’t believe it. I keep replaying it over and over in my head.
My now fiancé took me up to Heidelberg Castle as we are in Germany on holiday. We walked up a gazillion steps to get to the top the castle and were exhausted by the time we got to the top. Because it was late, it was completely deserted so we went into the courtyard to look at the Christmas Markets below.
It had been snowing earlier so visibility from the castle was poor but we could still see the lights from the Christmas markets and the town below. My OH told me he had a video to show me, it was of our cats and he was saying have you got something to say to Mummy? What are you trying to say? Then the camera turned to the floor where a piece of paper said “Will Mummy marry our Daddy?”
I froze in time and then said those words out loud and as I did, my OH went down on one knee in the snow (well sludge at this point) and said will you marry me? I was saying excitedly omg you’re doing it, you’re really doing it.
We kisses, we hugged tightly and I’ve been giddy ever since. He got a wet knee and I barely heard him say the magic words because his voice was so shaky but my god it was perfect.
7 years later and we are finally planning our wedding. Eeeek!!
