So I haven’t done a life update for a while now so I thought I would take my time to update you on a few details…
After I graduated I spent a couple of weeks catching up with friends and family, enjoying my summer before my holiday and obviously as you saw in my last post, I got two puppies.
I then went on holiday with Alex, my best friend Cristin and my parents. We stayed in a villa just north of Lake Korission in Corfu. It was a beautiful villa and if you would like to check it out it was Villa Karetta . We stayed there for two weeks and visited some beautiful places which if you follow me on instagram then you can check that out! Whilst we were in Corfu something amazing happened… Alex proposed and I SAID YES!!!
If you follow me on any other social media I’m sure by now you would definitely already know this but I wanted to share with you all the entire story of how it happened because let’s be honest who doesn’t love an engagement story?! It all started with our trip to Corfu town on the Thursday before we left. We had a look up the old fortress with everybody and loved taking some amazing photographs all together and then we headed into town to do some shopping. We popped into a jewellers after seeing a beautiful ring in the store window and I tried it on. After seeing it on my finger Alex bought the ring and that was the last I heard of it. The Tuesday after we had already planned to go out to dinner together so we went to a taverna we had been to before on the holiday which had a view overlooking the sea and sunset. We had a lovely meal before taking a stroll back along the cliffside to a bench we had discovered the week previously. Whilst watching the sunset together on the bench Alex got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was so ecstatically happy I literally couldn’t describe it in words, since that moment I have been living in a bubble, I can’t believe it and now the engagement party and wedding plans begin!
For now it’s back to reality, I have just finished my week in Year 6 at a junior school and I am now heading on to my teacher training course and I am excited to get started!
If you’re engaged or married I would love to know your engagement stories!
