A few weeks ago nearly 9 (yes NINE!) years after me and the boy got together he proposed!
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you will have seen this update but I wanted to share a few more details here :)
Little bit of a back story - the boy had bought me a simple silver ring about 8 years ago which I wore everyday up until a couple of months ago when it broke :(
A couple of Saturdays ago we spent the morning at London Zoo which is one of my favourite places to visit, looking at all the lovely animals and spending a crazy amount of time at the new Tiger Territory. After the boy buying me a crazy amount of tiger related bits and bobs from the gift shop we went and sat in Regents Park. After a little while he said he had a couple of surprises for me, one of which as a new ring to replace my broken one (cue a little light bulb going on in my head) but he wanted to check I liked it. He asked me to close my eyes and hold out my hands... a few moment later he said I could open my eyes and he was down on one knee!
It turns out that he had been planning the proposal for over 2 months and had actually chosen every aspect of the design of the ring - even chosen the actual diamond in the centre.
I think the fact that I am now engaged has finally sunk in although I still get butterflies when I think about it! We are hoping to get married this time next year so this little blog may get taken over with wedding related joy!
