I promise I had great intentions of getting back into my regular publishing schedule as I mentioned last time I posted on here, but something came up. Something exciting, magical, overwhelming and generally life changing came up, in fact. If you follow me on instagram, you may have noticed that last weekend, my partner-in-crime of many years asked me to be his wife. I said yes!

After the (obviously very happy) tears, telling our families and friends, plenty of fizz and an awful lot of excitement, we came to the realisation that we were now in fact engaged. And since then, in the most magical way, everything has changed.

I couldn’t sound more cheesy if I tried but it really feels as though my life has changed in the best way possible. Before last Saturday I was carrying down the path as normal, but then came a pivot, and now we’ve swung in a rather wonderful direction. The realisation that I get to spend my life with my best friend. The fact that we get to plan, and have a wedding. The way there’s a sparkly ring on my finger that I just can’t stop staring at. It’s not a drastic change, but it feels brand new, and I love it.

The magic engagement dust is beginning to settle, and now comes the realisation that we have a wedding to plan, and there is plenty to be done! My ring is being resized and my ever-romantic husband-to-be surprised me again with a the cutest little ring to sit in it’s place. We’ve started writing lists, booking venues and making plans and it’s all rather exciting, and I’m sure I’ll have plenty to share along the way.

I hope you’ll excuse my little posting break again, but as you can see, I think I’ve got a rather good excuse!
