We’re Engaged!!

Yes, we’re engaged!!! If you follow me on social media you have probably seen some posts from me mentioned that Justin has finally popped the question and we are now officially engaged.


Justin and I have known each other for almost 4 years now and we officially started dating 11th January 3 years ago, so we have been dating for about 3 and a half years now. It honestly doesn’t feel that long and it’s been the best few years of my life. I know since the day I met him that he was the one of me.  Like all relationships we had our disagreements which has been very minimal, both Aries and extremely hard headed I just knew he was the person I want to spend forever with.


Justin is an extremely romantic guy, we went away this weekend to the NH Lord Charles Hotel – he was so sneaky and asked me to be his wife Saturday night when we were having dinner at the hotel. I couldn’t stop crying… To be honest it all still feels so surreal this is not the kind of thing that happens to people like me. I am lucky enough to have found my prince charming and I am extremely blessed to have met someone who loves me this much. So expect some wedding related posts, I will be sharing a follow up post soon and sharing our plans with you guys one thing is for certain with so many other things going on in our life we won’t be getting married anytime soon we are hoping for a 2-year long engagement which I am personally happy with because we just have so much that we need to sort out of our future!!


Thank you so much to the amazing staff at the NH Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West for helping Justin plan this very special day for us the staff was so kind and helpful and kept this from me so well!!! Thank you for the hospitality! Also thank you so my amazing fiancè ( still feels so weird callin him that ) for making me the happiest woman in the world, I am excited to spend this chapter of our lives together.
