the mister and I are quite different in some ways. for instance, he says 'travel', I say 'holiday'. he says 'camping', I say, '5 stars?'
earlier this year, we agreed that a trip to a resort in bali (just us, no kids!) could suit us both. resort = relaxing. indonesia = surfing/adventure.
and you know what? it was quite the amazing trip. candlelit dinners of fresh seafood where we wiggled our toes in the sand. flowering trees with hanging lanterns, dragonflies landing on lily pads. lush lawns, manicured hedges (I do love a manicured hedge) and infinity pools everywhere I looked.
then on our second night, while we were having a ridiculously romantic time, sipping cocktails and watching the sun set over the ocean, he turned to me and said, "will you marry me?"
I was so surprised. I just stared at him. then I said something like, 'what?! no way! are you kidding?'
but he was holding out an open box with a diamond in it and after a few minutes I realised the moment was real. I said,"yes."
you guys, we're getting married.
have you been engaged? were you surprised to be proposed to? did you do the proposing? I'd love to hear!
