I am so glad I said yes!

Six years ago today my best friend asked me to spend the rest of forever with him. I am so glad I said yes! πŸ˜€


He chose the playground as a proposal spot because this is where we used to go and talk and play when we were first friends and getting to know each other back in 2004. A month later, it was one of those nights that we were there talking when we decided to let our friendship evolve into a relationship and officially became boyfriend and girlfriend. And a month after that, we shared our first kiss here as well. Over the following 3 1/2 years we added so many wonderful memories of us playing and dreaming about the future to our playground memories. So it really was the perfect spot to officially propose the idea of actually carrying out all those dreams of the future. πŸ™‚

  12. Your engagement anniversary is really close to mine! I got engaged on Valentine’s Day! Now I want to do a post, too! I love that picture! Is it an original from the moment or a reenactment?

    • You should totally do a post about it!! I want to hear all about it! And the picture is a re-enactment from 2012. We actually got engaged at night time and while I can’t remember what I was wearing, it was most likely sweats and a hoody not a cute outfit like in the photo, haha!
