A Long Engagement....
David and I are engaged!
Officially as of the 1st January 2010, however I was lucky enough to get two proposals...
The first was in Naseby, with a ring fashioned by the man himself, out of grass because he didn't want to buy a ring that I wouldn't like. I, of course, said yes! Unfortunately, that ring got misplaced as we were packing up to leave and I didn't manage to get a photo of it (sad face!).
The next day, a ring was bought and then promptly hidden so that he could surprise me and propose again with a real ring.
And so, last night, when he got home, he made me close my eyes as he sprinkled a rose petal path up the stairs. He then told me to follow the path to where he was waiting on bended knee with a single white rose and the ring. I may have teared up a little at this point but managed to hold it back (what can I say, I'm a sook!).
And I said yes (again!).
I've been bursting to tell you all since New Years day, but we needed to tell our close family and friends first (some of them read my blog, and probably wouldn't be impressed about finding out that way!).
We haven't set a date yet, but it will be next year either at the start or the end of the year. It all really depends on how settled we are in Sydney and whether we've managed to save enough money for a small intimate affair.
We've already decided on what the invitations will look like, but I'll start sharing that all with you as soon as we pick a date and start to plan. Also, just a warning, this may turn into somewhat of a wedding blog when we do decide on a date - but with vintage fashion thrown in as well of course!
