Wedding stories: The proposal

About a year and a half ago; my boyfriend and I went on a luxury holiday to the Garda lake in Italy for 10 days. We left home at midnight and changed seats every 3 hours. We were pretty beat when we arrived at about 9 am at the hotel. But waw; it was soooo beautiful...

This is the complete view of the hotel (yes there were suites with a  private swimming pool ! But we had a suite without swimming pool. Still very luxury though.)

And the pool ! Awesomesauce !!!

Than we visited the city Bardolino and enjoyed the beautiful weather and people and view. We had a very romantic dinner in a restaurant near the lake where the view was absolutely stunning:

After dinner we went back to our appartment and I was making myself comfortable on the couch when my boyfriend said  he forgot our navigation in the car... So I waited... And when he came back he had a huge smile upon his face. I was a bit confused; not really knowing what I was waiting for; when suddenly he kneeled down in front of me and asked me to marry him. I was a bit in shock. For years he said he didn't want to marry at all; so I kinda... laughed a little when he asked me ! It wasn't until I saw the ring I realized he was serious!
My boyfriend and I are together from 2003. We live together from 2007 and we love each other very much. Ofcourse my answer was YES !

My engagement ring:

Needless to say it was the most wonderful vacation ever ! Ok I must say I was also really really charmed about Garda lake itself and Italy in general. We had a great time and I'm dying to visit it again.

And what an amazing feeling it gives when you see the beautiful lake and enjoy the sound of water (can't help it. I just love the lake/sea/ocean sounds!)

Our wedding is planned 28th of april; and time is going really fast !! Lots of preperations to do but it'll be worth it.

Thanks for reading.
