top to bottom: valentines day 2011, us and our poppy soon after moving into our uni house in 2009, our last day of school in 2006, our first holiday together in 2007
sorry for being a useless blogger again, I have been busy and super tired. when Im not working in my studio, Im sleeping! explanation coming for that soon. I have BIG news. and a giveaway coming soon too!
but, I have other BIG news to share with you now :)
last weekend was my 21st birthday. On the friday, the day before my birthday, I was having a party in the evening. My David is still living in our uni house, for the next few weeks, while he still has a job there and until our tenancy runs out. the uni house is nearly 3 hours away, but he was supposed to be leaving on the friday morning to make it to my party in the evening and stay the weekend. I was feeling rubbish and ill on the friday morning, when I got a message from him to say he'd been called into work urgently and wouldn't be able to leave until much later, so was possibly going to miss my party. I was so disappointed, as well as feeling rubbish. My family were all out, and I stayed in my pyjamas feeling sorry for myself all morning. Then there was a knock on the door.
It was my David. I opened the door, looking like death, and there he was, on my doorstep, on one knee, with my great-grandmothers ring, and he PROPOSED!!!!
I just cried and cried and hugged him for what felt like forever. It was so lovely.
I have also always wanted my grandmothers ring. I asked my mother a while ago whether it would be possible for me to have as an engagement ring when the time came, which she was so happy about :) It is beautiful, one emerald and two diamonds either side, encased in a swirly gold pattern. It is at the jewelers being resized at the moment, but there will be pictures as soon as it's back! My great grandmother died just weeks before I was born. She was close to my mother and so excited about having her first great grandchild, and had bought lots of baby things and knitted me little outfits, but I never got to meet her. So there is quite a sweet connection too :)
I cannot believe me and my David are engaged!!!! We have been together since we were 15 years old, known each other since we were 11. I had a crush on him when I first met him at school, then decided he was a silly and annoying boy and spent years finding him irritating. He started liking me when we were 13. He was very persistent, and followed me around everywhere, and enlisted the help of mutual friends. We became best friends, but it wasn't until I went to house one day I realised I had fallen for him. We were there with his older sister, who was pregnant, and he was so sweet and caring with her. And I realised then that I wanted to be with him. And here we are, almost 6 years later, and we're going to get married!!
He told me he was planning his proposal for almost a year. It was going to in Rome, at the end of this month. He had been secretly saving for a surprise holiday there where he would propose, but due to some recent events, realised the money has to go elsewhere and it wasn't going to happen. So instead of Rome, it happened on my doorstep, while I had no makeup on, messy hair, and was in my pyjamas. I think it was perfect!
wow, I have rambled!! If you read all that, then thank you!
