Happy Valentine's Day blog friends.
We were meant to get engaged on Feb 14th, 2004, but I hadn't realised the significance of the date of our planned canyoning trip and, true to form, had a 'better offer' for a party or something on Valentine's Day. The Geege very amicably agreed to go on our trip the weekend before. And so the 7th it was.
Dear Geege packed all of my favourite foods into his backpack (along with our lilos, wetsuits etc.) and two piccolos of champagne (precariously wrapped in a teatowel so as not to clink or break) and we had the most wonderful picnic. It was very romantic and just perfect for us.
I didn't wear an engagement ring (just a 'space saver' one we got in a lolly wrapper). I just wanted one ring so I waited until our wedding day before I got to wear the ring we picked out.
I was so excited at the prospect. Not really being one for having a 'rock', I really love the butterfly design on the ring and the 40 little diamonds sparkle from all angles. It is perfect for me.
