Thought I’d update you all on the last couple of days 🙂 Two of my good friends just got engaged! Queue major jealousy, haha…
Boyfriend and I went to Paris on Monday, for a day trip, our first trip abroad together! Being in the UK we were able to hop across on frequent flyer miles and managed to cover a slice of the city in one day. I got pretty sick on the flight over (I’m not good on propeller planes…) so bf had to look after me and was such a sweetheart. I perked up throughout the day and it was sooo lovely.
I visited him for a few days before we went (LDR here) and I’m not even joking, literally EVERYONE at his church was asking if he was going to propose while we were in Paris! (Church community + a couple + a romantic trip to Paris = proposal) Bf had people ringing him up and asking if he had plans! Haha! I didn’t get my hopes up though, he’d already told me he wasn’t going to propose in Paris because one of his friends had already done that and he wants to do something original!
The whole day he was coming up with ideas of how he could have proposed! Including organising a group of French children on a school trip to hold signs by the Eiffel Tower and leaving a ring in a lock on the Pont Des Arts (Google it… we left a lock, seriously romantic! His idea!) and giving me a key and telling me to find it! The boy was ridiculously loved up. And hearing those ideas makes me think when it happens I will be getting a pretty awesome proposal!
And then he goes, ‘Besides, I can’t propose to you yet, I haven’t asked your dad for permission.’ I’ve picked a winner! 🙂
