I can be quite a sentimental soul at times but always prefer to keep my personal life and blog fairly separate and only share select snippets at very special times. If you follow me on twitter or instagram (pinkpixiedoll) it is likely you are fully briefed on my news but for those who don’t, I have an announcement… I’m engaged! What was already set to be an amazing holiday on the other side of the world was made even more memorable by Rob’s proposal two days in, on my birthday in New Zealand. Barefoot on a deserted beach at sunset, it was the most romantic moment of my life and was left in flood of tears, nodding profusely at his question. It was so natural, so perfect, I just keep reliving the moment in my head.
Eleven years ago this September was when I first met Rob. At sixteen I wasn’t looking for my soulmate in life but love works in mysterious ways and the rest, they say, is history. I’ve spent half my teens and the whole of my twenties with Rob by my side. He’s the man who will ungrudgingly take a hundred outfit photos for me just so I have two decent ones for my blog. He’s the guy that always cooks me dinner as I am a fiend to the kitchen. Rob is completely selfless and supports me in everything I do. He’s the man that shares in my childish humour and never judges me when I devour a whole slab of Dairy Milk to myself. When we moved in together he gave me half his wardrobe for my shoes, accepted that you can never have too many scented candles and didn’t grumbled once when my makeup storage overtook half our bedroom. He is one in a million and is now my fiancé. With a beautiful wedding to plan and whole new chapter of our lives to embark on, I am so excited for our future together.
