Heyyy lovliesss !
Welcome back, I hope you’re all warm and well!
As you can probably tell from the title, I have some exciting news.. Ya girl got engaged!
My boyfriend and I recently got back from our third trip to Dominican Republic, we had a super nice holiday and it was great to kick back, relax and not have to worry about a single thing. The holiday was made extra special because it’s where he popped the question, and obviously,
I said YES!
On our first morning, we woke up super early (5am!) and decided to take a sunrise walk along the beach, cute right? There were only a few people on the beach and it was so calm and tranquil. We took a short stroll up the beach and then when we were completely alone, Shane gave me a huge cuddle and dropped one on knee, holding a beautiful ring! I literally froze in that moment and I couldn’t quite believe what was happening. With the early morning sea breeze in my hair and the sound of waves gently crashing, I said YES! In that moment, I’ve never felt happiness like it, we threw our arms around each other and a little tear fell from my eyes. It was the perfect proposal and I’m in love with my ring!
When we got back to the hotel room, I rang my parents and let them know the good news, obviously they were over the moon and mum was bouncing off the walls with excitement. I told my girls at work and they couldn’t have been happier. It’s been so overwhelming the reaction from people and we’ve received lovely cards and gifts from our family. We’re so grateful and thank you !!
Now, we’ve got a lot of planning and organising to do! A wedding abroad is what we both want and it makes sense to do it somewhere special to us, so we’re gonna attempt to fly everyone over to Dominican Republic and get married on the beach he proposed at. We’re aiming for a December ’18 wedding but it all depends on cost and availability. Exciting times ahead!
I’ll do little wedding planning updates over the next 18 months and share my journey with you, if you know any good wedding blogs or websites please leave links in the comments below! <3
Thanks for being here
Kisses and Love
