The proposal

Wow, I have been wanting to document this for so long.

The proposal - not quite where it all began as we have been together for a while - but definitely the start of big plans.

One Sunday in June last year GiB let me sleep in while he pottered around the house sorting out fishing gear.

About 8am GiB suggested we take our poochie down the beach for a walk - a popular pasttime for us.

As we were walking along the beach hand in hand chatting about life, suddenly GiB stops and gives me a big hug, telling me how much he loves me and asking me to be his wife!

I'm speechless...which probably looked pretty funny to the guy walking along behind us with his dog!

To top things off, GiB runs off into the sand-dunes and comes back with an esky cooler bag, complete with chilled champagne and 2 glasses.

I honestly couldn't think of a better way to spend a Sunday morning than watching the sun over the waves, with my boy and my poochie, drinking expensive champagne and talking about our future together!!

Even after a year this story still gives me goosebumps!

Jumping in the deep end

Whew - deep breath...

Well, here I am finally in the blogging world on the other side of the mouse pad. I have been reading wedding blogs for at least 6 months now, sharing in the joys, trials, tribulations and celebrations of many wonderful ladies (and some gents) as they plan their weddings and marriages.

And it struck me that these people have a support group unlike any other, as well as a written record of their wedding planning journey and the process of self-discovery that often goes along with it.

Unfortunately, not being a very computer literate person, I was somewhat daunted by the whole blog process. But, I have decided to take the plunge, to step in the proverbial deep end and hope it all turns out. Please be kind with me. Send me comments, suggestions, encouragement and ideas, not just on the state of this blog, but also the plans, hopes and dreams (and probably outrageous faux pas) that will be unearthed here.
