I'm Engaged!





As I am sure that you guys can already guess from the title of this blog post, I’m engaged!

I have been dying to tell people, but it is something that we have kept under wraps for quite a while. Liam bought me my engagement ring back in September and he was planning n giving it to me back in September when we were in Florence. The reason why he didn’t get down on one knee was because we were in the thick of my nan’s treatment for breast cancer and it didn’t feel right to pop out with our own good news in the midst of all that. So, he told me about it and we decided that we would wait. We knew in our heads that we were engaged to each other, but we had to wait before I could wear the ring and start to tell people.

Once my nans treatment was done, we wanted to leave a grace period and then we would come out and announce our engagement. In that time, Liam’s dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Again, the timing wasn’t right for us and we didn’t know if it was actually going to happen in 2018. It wasn’t until the middle of December that we actually came out and told our family and everybody was so happy for us. Most people were actually annoyed that we put it on hold for other people, but it felt like the right thing to do at the time.

I know Liam’s mum for one was quite annoyed with him that it wasn’t some kind of big romantic gesture, but that doesn’t matter to me in the slightest. Because we had been together so long, we knew that getting engaged was on the cards and we had spoken about it and even discussed rings. It would have been lovely to get engaged in Florence and have a romantic story to tell our grandkids one day, but it isn’t the be all and end all. At the end of the day, I am just so happy to actually be his fiancé after all this time!

We are already speaking weddings and getting all of the family involved. It is just something positive to take our minds off all of the other things happening in our lives at the moment and we are so excited for what is going to happen next. I just wanted to share this post with you guys because I have shared most of my life with you guys over the past 3 years and I cannot wait to do some posts all about our wedding and the planning that goes into it!
