I'm Engaged

I'm back! And I'm engaged. Wow. It still seems so surreal to say that.

Back on the 26th May 2018, my boyfriend of five and a half years got down on one knee and proposed to me, on a weekend away. It was completely out of the blue, and I was genuinely so wonderfully surprised.

We have been together for five and a half years, and have been living together for four years this December, so it definitely felt like the most natural step for us both. Whilst I knew that inevitably the day would come, I was genuinely so shocked when it happened. 

We were in our hotel room, and he had a wallet of photographs. The photographs were turned upside down and each of them was numbered. He asked me to place them picture down, number up, on the table and then turn them over one at the time. As I turned them over, I was greeted with so many wonderful pictures of us that held memories - from holidays in Disneyland, to Wrestlemania and even just days out the two of us had. It wasn't until he told me to look closer that I realised each had a letter on them, and when I put all of the letters together, it read 'Will You Marry Me?'. As soon as it clicked, I looked across and saw him down on one knee, I was completely overcome with emotion.

My parents were away with us for the weekend, so when they knocked on our door to say they were ready to head out for dinner, it was a surprise for them too! (although my boyfriend did ask for their blessing months prior - months!)

When we arrived back from our weekend away, it was the Bank Holiday Monday, and we turned up at my parents house to see my sisters, and a surprise BBQ had been thrown for us to celebrate. It was such an incredible weekend.

I work in Events, so I am so excited to be able to plan my own and to be marrying my best friend. I have already started on the wedding preparations, and even have my venue booked (more on that later). 

I hope that explains where I have been the past few months, and I am so excited to start up my blog again, and share this wonderful journey with you all.
