An awkward, yet exciting announcement!

There are sometimes topics that you want to share on your blog that are difficult to, through being deeply personal or a subject which you find surprisingly awkward in real life. For me, this is one of those times.

There are many ways I wanted to announce my engagement to my lovely blogging friends, but I haven't been able to settle on one. So there you have it - that's my big announcement. My lovely (now) fiancé decided to pop the question. I am sure you can imagine I am exhilarated. I am also being quite protective of the moment. Not just here in 'real life' too.

I had often joked with my real-life besties that when someone finally proposed to me that I would wander around the streets screaming 'I'm not going to die alone!'. I know, pretty flippant right? I certainly promised to share every moment with them while I proudly paraded my newly 'blinged-up' hand around at every opportunity.

I surprised myself with my reticence to share the information. Yes, I immediately sent texts to a certain bunch to share the news, but when it came to 'telling the story' my reaction was to hug it to my chest and share a minimum of information. This was usually followed by people asking me if I was 'excited', perhaps reading my reservation as regret.

I have never been more excited in my life. My heart has been beaming since it all happened. Even so, I am quite content to keep the moment to myself. You guys will have to put up with what all of my other friends have:

He proposed in Budapest, while we were having coffee here:
While we were looking at this:
And this is what the rest of the building looks like (it's the Fisherman's Bastion):
It wasn't his original plan, but the weather was not on our side.

There is no picture of a ring as we are choosing it together when I see him next in July. There isn't really a picture of the grinning loons we turned into after either as we looked like we'd been living in a damp park for the last week.

There is no fixed date yet. But there is already a massive list of things I wish to craft; a gigantic spread sheet and lots of dress shops appointments made. It might explain why I haven't written about Budapest yet...I may have been distracted!

I will write about my trip for you though - Budapest is a fascinating place. Providing I don't get too distracted by wedding blogs over the weekend, you'll hear all about it soon.

(Eek! I'm getting married!!!)

I'll write soon....promise!

Congratulations, Rosie! I am so incredibly excited for the both of you -- being married is even more fun than getting married! Just remember not to fret about the boring parts of wedding planning (seating arrangements come to mind) and focus on the items that will bring you the most joy. xx Jess
