Yesterday, beneath Spring's beautiful cherry blossom, Brendan proposed!
Up until now I've always straddled the fence on marriage (Brendan too), but I have totally surprised myself by how I feel now that I am engaged. It feels so good! We both say we feel more united.
I think I now finally realise what people were talking about when they would say it's the ultimate commitment. (And I thought kids were...)
My parents were thrilled, and my Aunt who has been asking me on and off over the years 'do I need to buy a hat?' said, poetically, 'thank Christ for that!'. Okay, we're slow, we get it. We think it's just the right time though.
We have six to seven months to plan for the day and, given my past (lack of) interest in weddings and marriage, I really have no idea where to start. Does anyone know of any great resources (magazines, websites, blogs, anything...).
