Megan and Alan
Megan & Alan[dropcap color=”rosy”]M[/dropcap]y boyfriend and I planned a last minute weekend away in the Waterberg bush to celebrate our 3 year anniversary together… After work on the Friday all excited and packed for our weekend away, we eventually arrived at the beautiful Itaga Lodge, we arrived quiet late in the evening so we had an early night – Little did I know what the next day would hold for me.
It was freezing cold on the Saturday morning so we decided to do a little exploring of the area and visited surrounding lodges whilst just enjoying each others company and the peace and quiet of the bush.
After a relaxing late lunch Alan suggested we go on a game drive with one of the rangers, I thought it was a bit strange we were the only ones on the drive but thought nothing more of it. It was freezing cold but still amazing as we saw all kinds of game whilst snuggled under blankets on the open vehicle. After an hours drive the ranger pulled up next to the watering hole, got out and set up a little picnic for us and some how disappeared I got out of the vehicle completely at awe of the African sunset it was unbelievable and of course I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to test my photography “skills”.
After a couple of snaps I tuned around to ask Alan “how amazing is this sunset?” there he was down on one knee, holding a little black box with the most beautiful ring in it, with tears in his eyes and his voice quivering he managed to say “Baby I Love you more than anything, will you Marry me?” and of course all I could do was burst into tears and nod my head, after that we just held each other whilst watching the sun go down.
I was seven months pregnant with our baby boy at the time and in a wonderful way he got to be there with us in that beautiful moment. After the proposal I found out that he had carried the ring around in his pocket for months just waiting for the right opportunity, and on that day he decided that would be the right time to ask me to be his forever…
♥I will forever treasure this memory♥
