OMG I am getting MARRIED!!!
Like seriously, my best friend, love of my life, asked me to be his wife!! And I screamed YES!!!!!
I was feeling like I needed a little motivation to really concentrate on loosing the last 10-15kgs I want to, and well boy oh boy did the universe send me some motivation or what?!?!?!
So this is how the weekend of amazingness transpired…
We often go away to a little country town, about an hour away from home, there is a cute little cottage we stay in, we can take the dog, its in the middle of no where with nothing to do but relax, drink wine and sit in the hot tub. We love it, its our little idyllic getaway spot and we try to go every few months.
When my love got his tax return not so long ago, he declared he got a little bit extra than anticipated and with that extra cash we would book our little cabin and treat ourselves and even suggested having massages before we headed up there as we have both been training pretty hard recently. So naturally I am all keen for this and start prepping for our normal little weekend away, and just as it happens I had a day in Lieu owing to me at work so decided to use that on the Monday as we could only get into the cottage Saturday and Sunday nights.
On Saturday morning, I was a little stressed out, trying to get everything done around the house, cook food for us to take and get us packed, (We have a deal, he organises and takes me away for the weekend and I arrange the food and the packing) but I managed to get everything I wanted to done and we walked out and headed off for our massages, to then I learn that not only am I having a 1hr relaxation massage, but also a 30min reflexology treatment, a full 90 mins of bliss. I am still in the dark and non suspecting of his engagement plans, I am just thinking that I am the luckiest woman in the world to have such a wonderful man.
Once our treatments were done, we floated home, picked up our bags and the dog and headed for the country, upon arriving into the driveway, instead of taking the track to the right to our normal converted garage type cottage accommodation, he turns to the left, up towards the big 4 bedroom holiday house with a pool and a view across the valley!! I was sooo excited and thought “WOW, what an awesome surprise”. Still in complete and utter darkness.
We settled in and we relaxed for a bit then chipped some golf balls in the back yard and had a few drinks with a cheese platter on the deck while looking out at the tranquil view just having a normal conversation. My love got up from his seat to “refill” our drinks and upon his return he started with ” So baby, there is another reason as to why I wanted to bring you out here” as he is saying this he is reaching into his pocket and pulls out a ring and drops to his knee. (This is where I kind of start to find it hard to breathe and just start saying “OH MY GOD” over and over again with hot tears running down my face.”
He had tears in his eyes as he told me how he felt about me and how I was “the one” and he had never been so sure about anything in his life, he said some other truly amazing things also, something’s that have blurred with all the emotion , something’s are too precious and I don’t to tell, I don’t want to let go of those words and put them out in the world, those words are just for me.
My heart was pounding in my chest it was so full and still is. I thought it was going to burst right through. I am still in the most wonderful bubble. We spent the rest of the weekend crying together and laughing together and planning some parts to our future together.
So now, I have more motivation than ever to loose these last 10-15kgs, to concentrate on getting fit and healthy, to make sure I am exactly where I want to be on our special day.
