The Start of Togetherness
It all started by emails due to the long distance relationship. Pictures back and forth on what my Angel liked in an engagement ring. Looking at the expensive taste she has the budget needed to be reviewed and could only purchase from a certain jewellery shop. Out of the blue I even had a younger sister inquiring when “The Day” is. After wondering if she could keep a secret (which she surprised me she did) the two of us started coming up with a plan and got everything set for the big day. I still needed to ask the parents though…..the scary part. I had bought the ring already so no turning back now.
On my return to SA, I had to ask the parents the question the next day. That went down better than I thought so off Jeandri and I went to collect the ring and set up the venue for the evening. Our song playing in the background and the waitress with the go ahead. Messages placed in the restaurant’s menu leading up to asking the question. As usual nothing is simple and I battled to get the ring out my pocket. Finally I was sorted and able to go down on one knee and ask her hand in marriage. Luckily after all the stress and persuading which felt like forever she said….”YES”. What a relief!!!
