- Wedding: September 2011
For a while now I have felt like a kid playing the game ‘duck, duck, goose”, waiting somewhat patiently for my turn to be picked. Well, it is my turn! I’m Engaged!
He really caught me by surprise, despite all my attempts to find clues and pull details out of him. I really thought he might ask during our upcoming trip to England to meet his extended family. But I was wrong. This past week I had a work conference to go to in a neighbouring city and my family have a vacation cottage nearby so my SO decided to come along and we had a mini vacation by the lake.
He told me he had planned to take me to a ski hill close by and ask on the top of the mountain or maybe by the lake the next morning, but on the way home from the conference on the last night him and I got into a heart to heart discussion and by the time we arrived back at the house it was the perfect time. As I was taking off my shoes and coat (still talking, oblivious to what he was pulling out of his bag) I turned around and there he was. His speech fit perfectly in to the conversation we were still having.
I couldn’t have asked for a better and more ‘us’ moment. Just the two of us, at a place where I already have so many happy memories.
We spent the rest of the night talking and enjoying the moment. Then came home the next day to tell our families.
I hope all of the waiting bees getting their turn to be ‘picked’ and share a wonderful moment with their someone special.
PS. All the pictures are on his phone so they will follow shortly 😉
