So I guess I have a bit of exciting news to share..
Last night my sweet Morgan came and picked me up from the station after college (Which is not really that uncommon) I was under the impression that we were going straight home, until he took a different turn off and took me to 'our' waterfront - the place where he asked me if I would 'officially go out with him' - the place we have visited a dozen times since talking, laughing, sharing, doing bible devotionals, bike riding and just being together. It was dark as we pulled up but I could just make out the silhouette of a picnic table covered in a white tablecloth, candles and the cutest little home-made 'reserved sign'. We rugged up in jackets and blankets and chatted and nibbled away on cheese and bikkies and then as we walked hand in hand to the edge of the waterfront M pulled out a little jewelry box, got down on one knee and asked me if I would marry him!! I don't think the words 'yes' followed by 'yes yes yes oh yes!' could of come out out my mouth any quicker!

The ring is absolutely beautiful - a dainty little antique white gold ring with lots of little sparkles I love it - but even more than the ring itself I love what to me it symbolizes, what I see when I look at it that causes my eyes to fill with the happiest tears.

This ring means me and him forever - in God's perfect design.
learning, growing and loving through life together.
Through the good times and through the bad.
Being each others support, comfort, encouragement and strength.
Our own little family unit.
It's still so surreal!
but yeah girls I am officially GETTING MARRIED to my best friend!! Yeah!!

ooh and the photos are courtesy of M for the memories and because he knew I'd want to blog about it naaww!
