I was (and still am) 24….he was (and still is) 25
Nathan proposed to me
Nathan knew I liked certain traditions…so he made sure he asked my dad first…. Once he had my dads approval, he set about his plan! I’d been at work all day and came home that evening tired and ready for a quick tea! He offered to cook and I was more than happy to accept so off he went to the kitchen. He shouted through to me asking if I wanted something simple and I said yes. About 10 minutes late, he came into the living room with a little plate (my first thought was ‘my tea better be bigger than that!’) Once he passed me the plate, I think it must’ve been about 10 minutes till I stopped laughing!! He’d toasted a piece of bread and cut it into a heart shape. He then got a tin of spaghetti letters and spelt out ‘Marry Me’ on it!
I e‐mailed my mum and dad with the photo as they were on a cruise at the time, then we went to tell Nathans family.
It’s a white gold band with a diamond sat neatly on the top…the diamond is supported by a heart shape on each side.
I might have had an input!!
No, Nathan will struggle with a wedding ring, let alone an engagement ring!
We went out with our parents to a very nice Indian restaurant to celebrate.
Wakefield, West Yorkshire (where we all live)
Eat, drink & be merry!
If we can get organised, October 2010… if not, March/April/May 2011
Being creative and designing themes and invites!!
