I’ve just had the most amazing weekend…
On Saturday night, Greg popped the question… it’s true … he’s making an honest woman of me. I have to admit it was such a surprise, as it happened on the day of his brother’s bucks night…and it caught me totally off guard.
He proposed at a little cafe off the famous Lygon st in Mebourne… called Brunetti’s. Which means nothing to anyone else… but for Greg and I it’s where we fell in love over Italian Hot Chocolate. He proceeded to blind me with the most gorgeous ring I have ever seen. I was telling him it is so much better than anything I could ever have picked. He’s certainly very clever!
Then he whisked me away to a new Art Hotel in Melbourne called “The Olsen” where we spent the night in the Penthouse with a view overlooking Melbourne city, and sipped champagne in the hot tub on the balcony under the moon. How lovely huh!?
In case this wasn’t enough, he had also booked a “Couples Massage” at my favourite spa the following day… and the girls there were so excited for us. To top it all off we had a gorgeous dinner at the restaurant of our first date, but this time with all our family to share the exciting news.
So I have to say I was overwhelmed with romance, and feel so humbled and spoiled. I still catch the sparkles of the ring out the corner of my eye and have to pinch myself to know it’s true.
But as I was saying to a friend of mine yesterday, it feels like a little corner of my soul has relaxed. It’s so divine.
To all of you who have left us beautiful messages on facebook and in the inbox… thank you so much. Your support over the last three years has been wonderful, and we really do feel that this is a celebration not just of our love of each other, but all the wonderful people who are a part of our community. You guys make it all worthwhile and special!
Here’s to partnership, love and magic!
