Hello, friends. I have news…
I’m getting married!
Just over three weeks ago, I got home from work a little later than usual to find that dinner was ready and the table set on our outdoor patio. It wasn’t anything particularly out of the ordinary, but it was a nice surprise.
I even tweeted a picture, and said: Eating dinner in style. Have I mentioned how much we love our apartment?
We sat outside for quite some time; drinking wine, talking and enjoying the evening. At one point we were standing up, hugging and kissing, and Tim said “I wish it could be like this every night”. I agreed. Then he reached into his pocket, and with a ring in one hand said “that’s why I want to marry you”. And that’s when I burst into tears…
I am incredibly lucky to have found someone who, for lack of a better phrase, gets me. He understands my quirks and my flaws, and every day with him is overflowing with love and laughter. I adore him.
He proposed with a plastic ring he’d bought at the markets for $5 (which he’d been carrying around for 6 months!), so we went shopping together and picked out a gorgeous engagement ring. I’ve never been a big fan of diamonds, and I fell in love with a beautiful emerald ring. I can’t stop staring at it!
And so now, of course, I get to plan a wedding! I’m having so much fun with it. The venue is all but booked. We haven’t set the exact date yet, but it will be in September. I’ve just joined pinterest and have put together a wedding inspiration board. In case you can’t tell, it’s going to be colourful.
Are you on pinterest? Let me know!
I’m so excited for what 2011 will bring. It’s going to be a great year, I can feel it.
