Just wanted to share that all with you!!
On the 25th of sept, at my 18th Birthday party, where you all had to come dressed as your favourite fictional character I was dressed as Satine, and he as Sharpe from the Bernard Cromwell books and tv programme with Sean Bean.
After people had got their buffet food and were settling down to eat, he turned off the music and ask people to be quiet. Then he spoke of how we'd been together for 2 years and he wanted our relationship to move on to the next level. The next thing I know he's down on one knee, holding both my hands, looking me in the eye and saying
" Alex, will you marry me?"
With all my friends and family cheering him on.
I whispered a yes and then both with very shakey hands we eventually got the ring on. It's an oval sapphire set with two diamonds either side. It keep catching my eye as I type.
He even asked my Dad for permission.
And before anyone goes..."Oh but you're so young!" I am. But when you're onto a good thing you know it. It's not like we're getting married this year. We'll have to wait till we can afford a place of our own, and I want to finish college. But It is wonderful to be engaged.
