Sparkly ring and a happy heart

My apologies for my blogging hiatus, but I have been too busy basking in post proposal glory. The Boyf, who is now the fiancĂ©, finally popped the question just before Christmas, while we were holidaying in San Lameer. I am completely over the moon and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with MY one! Okay, for fear of losing my loyal readers due to the sappy soppy content of this post, I will stop right here and share a few pics with you. Ooh I must just mention that after the engagement we spent 4 magical days at the Oyster box in Umhlanga, it was like a mini engagement honeymoon. When the staff at the oyster box heard we had just gotten engaged they promptly upgraded our garden facing room to a luxury sea facing room, the view was spectacular! A full length post just for the oyster box to follow shortly, because they are just such dolls.

My man and I have been engaged since March. I wanted a year to plan my wedding but I can’t believe how quickly time has flown! I’m getting married in less than 2 months – Eek!
