I know I’ve been a bit AWOL for the past week but I have a good excuse, I promise…as you might be able to tell from my blog post title, I’m engaged! Coincedentally, but very happily for me, this is also my 200th blog post. Celebrations all round!
Last week my boyfriend and I went on holiday to Cornwall. We went last year and had an amazing time, and this year was no different – there will be posts soon on our incredible dinners at sunset and beach times. We had spectacular weather – it was sunny every single day, which for England in September is really impressive – and I felt really happy and properly relaxed for the first time in ages. On our last night we were going to Padstow to have dinner at Paul Ainsworth’s No 6 restaurant and my boyfriend suggested going for a walk up the hill at sunset. With a view over the harbour, he got down on one knee!
I cried, and said yes, and put on my beautiful ring. This is the first photo of us as an engaged couple...lovely faces!
Not to be clichéd but it was one of those moments you’ll remember for your whole life, standing on top of that hill with no one else around, in a place that I have so many attachments to, with the person I love. I know I will remember that moment forever. We stayed up there as long as we could, savouring the moment, not wanting to go back down.
Afterwards we went for our amazing dinner…more on that tomorrow, but the whole night I felt glittery like I was made of stars.
Since then life has been a bit of a whirlwind – I’ve started a new job and done some pretty intensive training – but I’m going home this weekend for a big celebration with my family, and I can’t wait!
I’m so happy I can share this news with you all, and thanks so much for supporting me over the last few years. I hope you’re excited about coming along with me on my wedding journey!
