News!

Yay!

hello! i am still away on holiday, but i thought i’d let you know (if you don’t follow me on twitter or instagram) that Anton and i got engaged yesterday! we got up at 5am to go watch the sun rise over the sea from the cliffs at Kei. i jumped out of the car as soon as we got there to snap some pics on my iPhone, like a true instagram nerd, and when i turned around to look at him he asked… and I said yes. oh, what a feeling.

we drank some champagne and i quickly downloaded an app so we could take a self timed photo (the reception was really great on that hill) and then some curious Nguni cattle came to witness the whole thing. it was the most amazing morning, and we are still in a glorious, happy daze.

i will be back in the swing of things from next week. hope that everyone had a great holiday season, looking forward to the year to come!

I said congratulations on my blog, and admitted that the idea I had of myself as being really laid back bride-to-be have proved to be utter fantasy, here: http://reformlane.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/ceremony.html

    Good luck, warm wishes, how exciting!

    i’ve been checking out your blog for a long time (love the mixes especially, we have the exact same taste in music and you’ve introduced me to some great stuff!) — this is my first time commenting, and i just HAD to say congrats! i’m recently engaged as well… and although the whole proposal was amazing, i am now regretting that cows were not involved.

    congrats again!
