I know we've done it a bit about face, but rules are made to be broken aren't they?
Last night Mr Mel proposed (yay!), while we both knew it was a given, he still managed to surprise me!
He had booked dinner at one of our favourite restaurants Sanctuary, and on the drive there he asked if I wanted to have another look at the Hall (our future venue). I had been trying to remember the name of the caterer listed on the wall at the Hall to get a quote, so thought that's a great idea.
When we arrived there was a pilates group in the hall, so we wrote down the name of the caterer, and Mr Mel stood back and looking at the view, commented how perfect a spot it will be. Then he gave me a Valentines Day card.
In the card he said some lovely stuff I won't list here (heehee), but ended the card with a PTO, on the back he'd written "I can't wait to have Valentines dinner tonight with my fiance', and I read it, looked at him and said no way! He replied with 'Chickadee will you marry me'. Of course I said yes :)
Such a perfect spot to have done it, I'm so proud of him, for keeping it a secret and picking the spot of our future marriage to propose, makes me tear up thinking of it :)
So we headed off to Sanctuary newly engaged, and was greeted by a glass of champagne, and a delicious dinner, a night to remember forever!
So there you go, we're engaged!! We're going ring shopping on Saturady, after the tasting at the caterers!
