We got engaged last week Thursday! Very exciting and very unexpected...
I must be honest - Im not very romantic at all, but Bevan is. So he has been scheming about how he wanted to propose for a while now apparently. He was either going to do it on the 1st of December or on the 20th Dec on my birthday but decided that the latter might be a bit obvious.
So the 1st it was.
I thought we were painting the main bedroom that night - he had other plans. Told me to sit in a chair in front of our new bookshelf and he'd take a picture of me. So I sat down and started blabbing on about how I wanted to put a table in front of one of the windows. When I turned around to face him, he was on one knee with a silver box in his hand! I cant quite remember what he said, but I do remember giggling from surprise and nervousness as he opened the box. I do however remember quite vividly wrapping my arms around his neck and hugging him for dear life.
I've been with this boy for over 5 years - I love him to bits. Of course the answer was yes!
And so now we're engaged! Wedding date is 14th July. Excited is an understatement - cannot wait to get started on this wedding.
The ring was my gran's which he simply had sized and polished because he knew I loved it so much. I love the ruby, the little diamonds around it, the oval setting - all of it. It's just perfect I reckon and given that it's a family heirloom makes it even more special. It's something we'll be passing down to our oldest kid in the hopes of making this our own little family tradition.
