Hello! Long time no post I know.
But it was for a good reason I promise...
BLAKE AND I GOT ENGAGED!!
Yay :) Yup we are getting married and I couldn't be happier.
It all started with me coming home from work on the 12th (the day before my birthday) to a house full of balloons and a sign on the wall telling me to pack my bags. As you can imagine I was pretty stoked, Blake had arranged with my work for me to have some time off and he booked us flights to his home town Geelong, Victoria.
So that night was spent packing and the next morning we were on a plane to Geelong :)
The proposal happened on Saturday afternoon (15th Dec). He told me we were heading to his brother's place which is on the coast, however, we were going a different route then normal *my first hint something was going on* Blake then announced that we'd just quickly pop down to Bell's Beach to take a look at the surf.
It was at the look out at Bell's Beach where he popped the question. I wasn't all that shocked as I had been expecting him to ask me for a while now but I still cried when he asked!
The biggest shock was how gorgeous the ring he chose was and that he had chosen it all by himself! No-one else knew what was going on.
The next day we got to celebrate with Blake's family and friends and even had my mum, step-dad, sister and nephew surprise us by flying overnight to be with us to celebrate on Sunday.
It was very much a whirl-wind trip and things have just been so busy since with Christmas yesterday and starting to plan the wedding! Blake originally told me I had 2 months but I have managed to sort some sense into him and give us until October next year haha.
So yeah that is where I have been! I will be sure to start more regular posting again soon.
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and are gearing up for a great new years!!
