Noel & I had been talking about and looking at engagement rings for months, so it was definitely something we'd been heading towards. My fingers are tiny, so all the rings we looked at had to be viewed with the question, "can it be resized small enough?" which ruled a lot of designs out. But I really loved this one; it's simple & beautiful & I think it suits me perfectly.
He proposed to me in my favourite place in Adelaide - in Borders!!! This seriously is so me, and so perfect really; I always feel most at home when I'm surrounded by books, happy in that blissful kind of way. The fact that Noel knows what that means to me speaks volumes about why he is the perfect person for me to marry.
[You might laugh at the idea of getting engaged in a bookstore, but it really is just so perfect!]
We're planning to get married in the first few months of 2010, after I've finished my Masters, though the most important thing will be travelling after - we're planning a big overseas trip, instead of having a big wedding. The idea of having a "big day" kinda freaks me out :-\
Thankyou all so much for the congratulations & happy messages - you are so lovely ♥ I can't really believe we are actually engaged, but it makes me so happy.
