On 31 December 2012, the last day of the year, we ended the year with a braai and having some friends over at our place.
The whole day I was very excited to go watch fireworks on the beach, to celebrate the New Year. As the hours pass, I wasn’t quite sure if we will be going to the beach, because the wind was a bit unpleasant. It was however the first time since I have moved to Cape Town to celebrate the New Year like that so the feeling of doing it, was just amazing.
We however did go to the beach and made it just in time to share the Happy New Year kiss at 12pm on the 1st of January 2013. Afterwards while watching the fireworks go off, I needed to take a photo, that was a picture perfect moment. I noticed him standing there, not saying a word, and then he asked me to put the camera off for a minute and to enjoy the view, just holding me in his arms and looking above. As I turned towards him, and saying how beautiful this is, I caught a big smile on his face. He held my hand and looked into my eyes. Shortly thereafter, he took something (the ring) out of his pocket and I thought “is he” and he asked me to marry him (to be his wife). Wow, the story can go on forever after that… it was so romantic. I don’t think there is enough words to say how I felt.
