Lesley and Riaan
Lesley and Riaan[three_fifth] [dropcap color=”rosy”]W[/dropcap]e (Riaan & I) got engaged in December 2011 and will be tying the knot on 23 March 2013. We went camping for a friend’s birthday and I had no inkling of an idea what was to happen. I know we had talked about rings and weddings but nothing was concrete. Us girls were playing Pictionary one afternoon while on our camping trip (they were all in on the plan), when it was my friends’ turn to draw a picture and I had to figure out what it was. You can see the photos attached of what she drew, at first I thought it was a swimming pool, and then a sweet, then she drew the fingers, and I guessed wedding ring. She keep on pointing at the picture and shaking her head.
When I finally guessed engagement ring, I saw my then boyfriend, now fiancee Riaan appear next to me with a black little box. It was the biggest, best surprise ever. The tears immediately welled up as I was so overwhelmed with emotion. For me, it certainly was such a perfect way to ask the question especially as nothing goes past me unnoticed, but this surely had!
