- Wedding: November 2012
Oh yes, ladies, I can barely believe it. However it is true. I’m no longer waiting.
I am engaged!!!
I don’t think it’s actually sunk in yet, but last night my darling fiancee (!) took me for a meal at the resturant where we had our first date and so followed the most amazing evening.
He could barely wait until we’d ordered our starter when he started making conversation about how we sat here on our first date and how the last 3 1/2 years had been the best of his life…. as soon as he got that far I started having an out of body experience! As he spoke you could see him tearing up and his voice started to break, which in turn made me start to cry. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a red box and pushed it across the table. He turn the box to me and opened it and quite simply he said. Will you marry me?
I wasn’t expect to react the way I did but I went into shock! after what felt like ages he said” you need to say something now you know!” and I just look at him and whispered yes!
We ordered a bottle of champagne after that and the resturant very kindly gave us another bottle too!
My darling fi arranged for our friends to join us afterward to celebrate and celebrate we did! The reaction has been amazing and I haven’t stopped crying tears of joy!
Today we celebrated with his folk, and his father called me his wonderful daughter in law and that set me off more than ever! We see my family tomorrow and have a meal with them all next week!
I’m on cloud 9 but still finding it all incredibly surreal! Ònce I’ve let the reality sink in I will start the planning!
So without further ado, my ring!….
