Susan & Wouter

[dropcap color=”rosy”]I[/dropcap]t was 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 to the beach to watch the fireworks from there on New Years Eve, but as we all know, the wind in Cape Town can be somewhat unpleasant, so I was unsure if we will be going. It was the first time ever that I could be on a beach and see all the excitement and fireworks to start of the New Year.

We made it just in time for 12h00 on the beach where we hugged and wished each other a happy new year.

While standing on the beach and watching the amazing fireworks, I wanted to take photos, I noticed him just standing there and watching the view and he told me to put the camera off and to just enjoy and watch the fireworks. I knew from his side, okay that is a little strange and he would usually just let me take photos. But I switched the camera off and watch it with him, holding each other and that is the best feeling ever to start the New Year.

As we were standing on the beach I turned towards him and told him this is amazing and I love it, where he was totally smiling at me the entire time, holding my hand, and looking back into my eyes, it was so cute.

Short-thereafter he took something out of his pocket and I though “is he” and he asked me to marry him.

I was so excited. Words can’t describe the feeling and it was the most romantic idea ever. We got engaged on 1 January 2013 and I feel truly lucky.
