Engaged!

I have been contemplating how to write this entry for the whole of last week... And somehow the words that come out never seem to express how i feel inside. It is a mixture of joy, anticipation, hope and a little excitement.

Here's how the story roll...

we drove down to adelaide on Good Friday nite and reached on sat morn. just walked ard the city and had a good dinner at melting pot that nite itself. Darien had this lovely salmon tartare that is simply to die for.... hmmm....

anyway we decided to pop to barossa valley on sunday. went to a couple of cellar doors to taste wine. and since we got there early, we went to quite a number of places before lunch. However, thoughout the drive, he kept asking Dawn which was that stone mansion that she went to before cos he wants to take a look at that. I thought he was just trying to b irritating cos every stone place that he passes by, he would ask her.

Being rather famished, had lunch at this cottage. So rite after lunch, when we got back into the car and i was going to rest my hand on his lap when he started to say that it is ticklish. which is strange cos i normally put my hand there anyway. and i saw a box like thingy in his pocket. strange... i asked him wat it was and he said that it was mints? hmmmm.... sussy. a million things ran through my mind but i thought i would just take it easy.

We drove to the Peter Lehmann estate next and then they decided tht they wanted to walk to the rose garden and take pictures. so off we went and then dawn suddenly said tat she wanted to go back to the car to take her camera casing. so that left me and darien and we started walking up the rose arch. suddenly, he just stopped and took out the ring and it was the one that I saw at EGetal. something that i cannot afford at this point. That was when i started tearing and he asked,"do you want to spend the rest of your life with me. Do you want to marry me?" I'm telling ya, I was so surprised and stumped for awhile. i think i said yes... so he took the ring out and i tried it on. gosh... so pretty. it's a matte white gold band with 13 baby diamonds embedded all ard it.

hugged him so tightly after that. and then he told me that we have to bring the ring back so that they can make a brand new one for me cos EGetal customizes your rings for you and when you place an order, they will take your ring size and you wait about 4 weeks for them to make one for you.

I asked him after that if i said yes and he said that i did say that. I can't stop smiling that day. It was just the best feeling. It felt so special and surreal as Darien NEVER gave a ring to any gal before in his life. Not even the cheesy silver ones. He ever mentioned that he would only give it to his wife to be and so now here we are. Engaged. But without a ring for now...

It was after that that he mentioned that he was lookin for the stone mansion so that he can propose there. but it did work out in the end...

I didn't really like adelaide tt much but it is the place that I will remember for life now. I still can't wipe that smirk off my face now. We are engaged. He is my fiance... hmmm...
