We’re engaged!

So before I get on about rehashing my holiday I have to address the most important thing that happened while we were away. Topher asked me to marry him and I said yes!

engaged - proposal

I was so surprised, I really had no idea. All 5 of our friends who were on holiday with us were in on it of course – it was just me who was clueless.

engaged - wand box

He proposed in front of Hogwarts castle in Universal’s Islands of Adventure with a wand & box he had made himself (with a little help from his friend). I love that he went through all the trouble and that he had put arabic on the wand. “It either means love or cereal”. I laughed so hard. Oh and confirmation from my dad – it does mean love!engaged - ring

Apparently I really don’t pay attention because there were so many signs leading up to this that seem so obvious now. 
engaged - ring worn

The ring is perfect. It’s peach sapphire with pearls on a rose gold band. It’s based on an American design I loved but it would have cost too much in customs to bring over. So he took the design to a jeweller in Manchester and had it custom made. I love it so much.

Since we’re buying a house next year the wedding won’t be until 2017 but I can’t wait 🙂
