Underneath the stars

My fun twist would definitely have to be my 25th birthday. My boyfriend and I took a trip up to Hunter Valley (mainly to drink wine, eat cheese and STARGAZE). We went out to this big open field outside our hotel room to marvel at the plethora of stars.

My boyfriend told me to hang tight while he got my birthday present from his car. Turns out, it was a picture book that he had made himself. I was reading this cute ass book with snot flying out of my nostrils (he has never been this sentimental in our 10 years of being together). At the end of the book, his character in the book got down on one knee and said “Will you marry me?”. I was very confused at this stage and even more confused when I looked up and he was still standing there. Turns out the ring box was stuck in his pocket! He quickly got down on one knee and the rest is history.

I was in my pyjamas, had the puffiest eyes from crying, and was getting eaten alive by mosquitoes, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. It was the perfect proposal, and gave me the best present I could ever imagine – a partner for life!
