The moment my life changed…and I got engaged!

It’s extraordinary how life can change in just a few seconds. One minute I was walking along the water bank, soaking in the mood of the early morning, enjoying the peace around me filled with the chirpy morning bird song…enjoying life. The next minute something else happened. Something unexpected, blissful, magical and powerful that’s changed my life…FOREVER! I turned around to find my boyfriend in front of me, on his knee, proposing! I always imagined myself crying but I was in such a shock that I could only say “yes” and…and well, embrace the love of my life in one big post-engagement hug.

…few seconds later and my life changed…

I still remember meeting my man like it was yesterday. It happened over 6 years ago and from the very first moment I spoke to him, I knew. There was something very interesting about him, perhaps his friendly nature or his kind smile. And I wasn’t wrong. He is an entertainer, I’m never bored with him, he makes me smile when I’m down, he lifts my mood after a hard day at work. He was supported me when i was at university full time and working full time (to save for next years fees and pay my bills). It was a hard time and without him, it would have been extremely difficult. He patiently takes thousands of pictures of me for my blog, then listens to me tell him what hes done wrong, retakes them and then watches me to pick only a handful. Even though he does have his flawes, like when he complains that I have way too many clothes or that I don’t need that extra pair of shoes, I’m ready to love him forever and ever. I always was.

It’s been two weeks and I keep checking my ring every minute, making sure it’s there. I can’t help just looking at it and smiling to myself it still feels very surreal. He is the man I want to spent rest of the life with…I’m full of hope and expectations. Love works in mysterious ways and I can’t wait to spend my future with my man!

I’m going to be gibbering a lot from now on twitter (@Mode_lily) and Instagram (ModeLily) about more updates on my wedding planning, join me there and perhaps share your own experience.


Yours truly,
