That’s how long it’s been since I last blogged. Nearly a whole year has gone by without a post! At first, I didn’t miss it. I enjoyed the freedom of no longer coming up with new and original content for this blog. As time passed though, I slowly started to miss it. I missed the little online community that I had created here. I also missed the creative outlet. Last week, I decided to just go ahead and start blogging again. I have no idea if anyone will come by and read my posts, but I’m going to start writing again and hope for the best!
A lot of things have happened in the past year, but I’m going to talk about the most exciting thing…I got engaged in February! After nearly 5 years of dating, Stephen proposed! I do have to point out (for those of you who may be wondering) that it wasn’t a Valentine’s Day proposal (Stephen isn’t cheesy like that). It was, however, a birthday proposal (Stephen is cheesy like that), and it was perfect.
Stephen took me out for a date night, to a movie theatre we don’t often go to because of how far it was from us. He let me pick the movie, which ended up being nowhere near as funny as the commercials led us to believe. As we were leaving the theatre, he dragged me into the photo booth located nearby. I’ve dragged him into many photo booths throughout our relationship, so this wasn’t anything new to me. As I sat on his knee, I concerned myself with how we were going to pose. Little did I know, at that time, he was busy pulling a ring out of his pocket. As the camera started snapping pictures, Stephen started his proposal. Here’s one thing that you need to know first- Stephen told me before we started dating that he liked to buy his girlfriends jewellery. Well, in the nearly 5 years we had been together, he had never bought me a single piece of jewellery! This was something that I never let him live down, I loved bugging him about that whenever I got the chance! Anyway, he started off the proposal by telling me that he wanted the first piece of jewellery he ever bought me to be the most important one of all. *sigh* So incredibly cheesy, but just the way I like it.
It was such a perfect moment; quiet and intimate, and we’ve got pictures of the whole thing. Typical girl warning: I’m not very photogenic when I’m caught off guard, so I’m making some funny faces in these pictures. I’ve decided that I just don’t care though, I’m just happy to have this moment caught on film.
We’re proudly displaying this photo strip on our fridge at the moment. I need to find a nice frame for it though, and add it to our gallery wall!
Of course, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to show off my engagement ring! Stephen did a great job of picking it out; it suits my tastes perfectly. He’d be proud to point out that it’s an authentic Canadian diamond!
Now, for the big question! When’s the wedding day? Glad you asked, because it’s coming up in only 89 days…we’re getting married on August 31st! We’re already deep into wedding planning, so I’ve got lots to catch you lovely readers up on.
It feels good to be back.
