Every now and then we all have those long holiday weekends that we look back on that are distinguished above all others. This weekend was no exception. Like many holidays, I spent the last few hours before setting off trying to organise everything I needed, marking the start of the holiday. Leaving things to last-minute is nothing unusual for me but I knew that I would return from this holiday with my life forever different.

Upon arriving at our destination we spent the first few hours doing the activity we enjoy the most – walking along the beach, more specifically, Barafundle Bay. It was here when I asked the most important question I could ever ask someone!

I asked my girlfriend of nine months if she will marry me!

I’m delighted to say that the answer to this important question was a massive yes! What followed was a mixture of all sorts of emotions as I don’t think I fully manage to digest the extent of what happened.

There is no doubt that I am extremely happy with the outcome and I’m looking forward to spending the rest of my life knowing that I with someone I can call my best friend.

While it may seem a little scary at first, I am very much excited about the idea of planning a life with someone who I can call my best friend!

Looking ahead, I’m very much aware that the process of planning a wedding is not easy and it will bring about its stresses and strains, but I know the outcome is worth it!
