Mikey and I have been together almost 9 years and I am so so happy to finally be engaged to the guy I want to marry. I think that the day of our engagement has be to one of the happiest days of my life! I really think it was perfect and everything I had imagined it would be.
We went about our picnic as usual and were reading some magazines when all of a sudden Mikey pulled out the most beautiful ring and proposed. I was almost speechless for about 1/2 hour afterwards.
I could not have thought of a more beautiful place to get engaged, doing something we both love, with no one else around but the autumn leaves. It will deffiantely be a day I will remember for the rest of my life.
I am so glad that I had my camera with me that day, I usually take it with my most outings we go on and that day was no exception.
The colours of the botanic gardens in autumn are just amazing!
There arent too many flowers around, the autumn leaves make up for it with their beautiful colours.
We came across a lovely black swan heading to the lake...
I lovvve my ring SO much, I love that it is different to the one diamond in the middle that many rings have, with clusters also around the main diamond and along the band. And so increadibly sparkly I cant take my eyes off it :)
That evening we went to Regattas Bistro for dinner as planned, but celebrating more than just Mikeys new job :) but something even better, our engagement.
The food was delicious as always and a wonderful way to finish off the most amazing day.
I had capsicum stuffed with field mushrooms, tomato stuffed with herby polenta on minted pea puree surrounded by lots of different vegetables including beans, asparagus, baby carrots and beetroot.
Apart from our engagement and Mikey getting a new job (which he starts tomorrow!), a few more exciting things have happended, it is also my birthday next week! So please excuse my short absence from your blogs the last week or two, and I will be posting again soon with more May happenings :)
Im interested to know, if you are engaged or married where did your partner propose!???
I hope your May is turning out as wonderfully as mine!
