So, I wasn't feeling great the other day, I had a cold, I was tired, and I just wanted to go home.... The boyfriend, however, had other ideas. He insisted we went for dinner, as we had planned. I thought it was weird, since he's the one always telling me to slow down when I'm not feeling well. Turns out, he had a reason... and a plan!
He took me for a small picnic in the same spot in the park where we had our first kiss. And halfway through it, he went down on one knee and took a small box out of his bag. Now, I'd love to say that I was elegant and composed while he said his bit, but all I did was shriek "A box, a box, a box..." He was very nervous but was incredibly sweet despite my shrieking. I guess he knows by now what he's getting himself into!
Once I said yes (Of course!), we could both relax. He had planned an amazing evening with dinner at one of my favourite restaurants in Oxford, The Old Parsonage, and a performance of Giselle, by The English National Ballet. The performance was amazing, but truth to be told, I may have spent more time looking at my ring than at the stage.
It was thoughtful, it was romantic, it was perfect. I can't wait to start this new chapter of our lives together. Jon, I love you and of course I want to spend the rest of my life with you.
