LIFESTYLE : Guys.... I'm Engaged.....
So I'm back from Rome and lets just say that it was life changing.
I didn't see it coming
Ok, so lets backtrack to Monday.
We had been in Rome for two days, but this was the one trip out that I had been looking forward to the most.
Since I was little and I watched the Lizzie Mcguire Movie, I had wanted to go to the Trevi Fountain. She went there, made a wish and became an international popstar.
When I went there, I gained a fiancé. Yes. I know I spoiled it in the title of this excited post.
But I got engaged.
So there I was, staring at the fountain. Luke gets the camera ready, tells me to close my eyes and to throw my coin in.
Left hand over the right shoulder. I do it, paranoid that my coin didn't make it.
I turn back and Luke is there on one knee with a ring.
I couldn't speak and neither could he.
He only managed "will ya" and then I mouthed yes.
And I became engaged.
After almost six years together, we are planning a wedding.
After, I learnt that Luke had asked my Father's permission and his family all knew that it was going to happen. He has picked the one location that he knew I was going to love. He did well to hide the ring and keep everything so secret.
It was the most magical moment of my life so far.
I spent the next two hours taking pictures of my hand in different locations.
And heres the ring :
I keep looking at my hand and I remember that little scene over and over again. Sometime I forget and then remember.
We are both so excited to start this new journey together.
Since the proposal, I have gone into complete wifey mode, but more on this later.
Thanks to everyone that has wished us well, it means the world.
I guess, when the time comes, I'l feature some wedding ideas on here.
But for now.... I'm going to go and watch Home Alone.
Thanks for reading
