I’ve been slow on the blog front in the last two weeks, simply because they have been a whirlwind. I literally have been running up and down seeing family and friends, trying to digest my proposal, adjusting to my new position at work. You know when they say, ‘things always happen at once’. When they ALWAYS rings true with me.
My Proposal was simply beautiful. Amazing. Breathtaking. Emotional & more! My fiance and I have been together for 4 years and have been discussing marriage for a while so I always knew we would eventually get to the day where we got engaged. The question was….WHEN? We spoke about marriage almost every day. There would always been a reference to it or life together in the future which reaffirmed that it was definitely going to happen but with everything, until it happens…it simply hasn’t. I’m actually going to write about my feelings leading up to the proposal in another post because the pressures of being in a long term relationship and not being engaged are RIFE at the moment.
There are so many details and twists and turns to my proposal which all make it even more beautiful. Even as I write this, Im getting teary eyed just thinking about that beautiful day/weekend. My partner booked us a trip to Paris for 28th Jan. Just a short trip to explore our favourite city again. It would be our third time their together and to be honest we pretty much had done it all in Paris.
Leading up to the trip none of us seemed excited or knew what we should do in Paris (all which aided to his plan). Even up until we got there we had no plans. We debated for 20 mins on whether we should get dressed up, go to the Effiel Tower and then dinner from there or just tour all the sites. Obviously, my partner finally won with going to the Effiel Tower and then to ‘dinner’.
The moment he proposed was so beautiful. We witnessed another couple propose in the same exact spot and they actually took our video/pics. If you have seen the snippet of my proposal, go to my instagram page to see it. After the proposal, I was literally on cloud 9. I didn’t know whether I was coming or going. I didn’t know what to say to anyone that called or I spoke to. I was in SHOCK. But the best was yet to come.
We went back to the hotel and my fiance told me he had arranged another surprise and that the hotel were going to bring up a bottle of champagne to our room with sparklers and all. He said ‘Come to the door and record it with me’. Obviously, I was saying ‘well, that would have been better as a surprise’. He opened the door…..in walked my mum and his mum!
I literally ran in shock loool. I cried so much. I just couldn’t believe it. Seeing and being with our mums was the icing on the cake!
I really want to go into every single detail about my beautiful proposal but I’d be writing for England. lool
Feelings post engagement
The emotions have been overwhelming. The messages, cards, snaps lool everything has been great. It beens overwhelming. Even the 1 or 2 people who I’ve thought their messages may not be from the heart lol (There will always be some). Besides all that, the feeling and knowing that your marrying your best-friend is indescribeable. The journey to the altar will not be easy but nonetheless, I’m looking forward.
Ive been engaged 2 weeks and people are already asking for dates! As much I want to just chill and enjoy the moment to it’s capacity, it’s not looking we can stall it lol. I ideally don’t want a long period of engagement either so, planning will commence very soon.
