Kerri and Marius
Kerri and Marius[three_fifth] [dropcap color=”rosy”]O[/dropcap]n the 2nd December 2012 we had arranged our daughters christening. Just something small at home, with friend and family. Woke up that morning and just hated the weather as it was raining and we had arranged everything to be in the garden. But we had to move 40 people into my parents house, a bit of a squeeze but it worked.
The priest started at about 10 and I couldn’t understand why my fiancé was so stress, he was running around a bit that morning just to make sure everything was perfect for our little princesses christening. But honestly it wasn’t that stress full, so I couldn’t understand what was up. I still leaned over to him as the priest started to talk as asked him what’s up and he said nothing sssssssshhhh. At this point I’m thinking, no dude u did not just ssssssshhhhhh me.
Anyway as the ceremony went on, he was breathing very deeply and his hands were all sweaty just like the first time we went on a date. So I leaned over again and ask “ Baby are you okay, do you need your asthma pump”, once again I got a NO and the cold shoulder, so now I’m getting upset, I’m thinking what did I do, this isn’t a day for a fight, especially because it’s our daughters big day. Well priest finished up the Christening, which was amazing. Marius then stood up to just thank everybody for joining us on such a special day and suddenly it hit me, he was nervous to say a speech in front of everybody. So at the same point he grab my hand to come stand with him and while he was busy they were handing out champagne . So we toasted on our daughter christening and then headed off to sit down again, when he pulled me closer and said in front of everybody that we wanted to celebrate something else with them and now I’m looking at him and thinking what you talking about, I’m definitely not pregnant again. He picks up a bunch from flowers and puts it in my hand and I still remember saying to him, “love what must I do with these flowers?” He whispers to me look on top and then I saw the most amazing ring ever. I took it off and he got on one knee and asked me in front of all our friends and family to MARRY HIM. I was crying too much that I couldn’t say yes, so I nodded my head and everybody started screaming, is that a yes Kerri. Now that’s a pretty awesome proposal!!!
