Now I can share...!!!!

...my exciting news with all the world! Whoohoo!

On the 3rd of december Matt got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, and I said yes! We've been together 6 years and lived together for the last 4, he is the love of my life and now we're going to be husband and wife *Big Grin*. I've been dying to shout it from the rooftops for 2 weeks and its been so hard to keep my big mouth shut, but we wanted to make sure we told some really special and important people first, and they've been bloomin hard to pin down cause apparently there is this thing called Christmas happening soon !?!?Heres a piccy of me wearing my ring that we chose together, and one of it on its own. I love it, its so not traditional and its comfy and feels part of me already. *Another Big Grin* Its made by a local jeweller Michael Kay who's a member of my crafts association, you can see more of his work here. Oh by the way the paper background is one of the Scrumptious Basic Grey Blush papers, gorgeous!
We're planning on getting married in August next year in an intimate way with close family and friends although we haven't pinned down a date yet, so much to do! Its fantastically exciting and a little bit nervewracking as neither of us are very good at being the centre of attention!

And its my birthday tomorrow too, whoohoo!

Kathy said...

Congratulations (again) Rhi, this is such great news and I know you've been bursting to get it out in the open!

The ring is so lovely and unusual - and how very special to have been able to have it made by someone you know and admire.

Maybe if Beckie made your dress she could cover it in sticky-backed plastic (a la Blue Peter) just in case of inclement weather - as if Scotland ever has that.....

Tracey said...

I'm so pleased for you both, you deserve so much happiness and am glad you have found it in Matt.
The ring is stunning and suits your personality perfectly IMHO, can't wait ot see it in the flesh.
