Mr Mel Proposed!!

What a memorable Valentine's Day, Mr Mel had booked dinner at one of our favourite restaurants Sanctuary, and on the drive there he asked if I wanted to stop quick at one of our favourite spots in the Valley, the Pokolbin Community Hall (where we had decided we would have our wedding, down the track, I know we did things out of order a bit didn't we!!)

I had been trying to remember the name of a caterer listed on the wall at the Hall to get a quote, so thought that's a great idea.

When we arrived there was a pilates group in the hall, so we wrote down the name of the caterer, and Mr Mel stood back and looking at the view, commented how perfect a spot it will be.  Then he gave me a Valentines Day card.

In the card he said some lovely stuff I won't list here (heehee), but ended the card with a PTO, on the back he'd written "I can't wait to have Valentines dinner tonight with my fiance', and I read it, looked at him and said no way!  He replied with 'Chickadee will you marry me'.  Of course I said yes  :)

Such a perfect spot to have done it, I'm so proud of him, for keeping it a secret and picking the spot of our future marriage to propose, makes me tear up thinking of it :)

So we headed off to Sanctuary newly engaged, and was greeted by a glass of champagne, and a delicious dinner, a night to remember forever!

So there you go, we're engaged!!  We're going ring shopping on Saturday!

For those interested, a link to our secret squirrel site is here  :)

Till next time,
