It's been a couple of weeks since I've written a blog post; there has been so many lovely things happening that I haven't had a moment to pause, upload photos and share news until now :)
How was everyone's Christmas? For me, it's been one I'll never forget.
Overseas best friends coming home for party times at our new flat, seeing my family all together after way too long apart, chilling out in hungover hazes with the first series of Orange is the New Black and stuffing my face with gingerbread houses until I can't move off the sofa - this is the best way to spend time away from the everyday routine.
Just before Christmas kicked in, something super crazy magical happened. Neil took he and I on a surprise trip to Bruges - one of the most festive and beautiful cities in the world, that felt to me like being inside a Christmassy snow globe. I had no idea where we were going - or what amazing surprises he had planned - until it all rolled out in front of me, and I feel like the luckiest lass in the world.
We ate some delicious food, overindulged in Belgian beer and chocolates and stayed in a beautiful farmhouse just outside of the city, that looked like something of a Disney film in the frosty early mornings. Magical is the only word I can use to describe it all.
This was a weekend I'll never forget. Neil got down on one knee and asked me to marry him by a beautiful canal, and of course I said yes!
Here are just a handful of the hundred photos Neil took of our engagement weekend, 12/13/14.
I'm still on an elated high :)
