I’m engaged!

Yep, looks like I’m getting hitched.
On February 17 I proposed to Markus – and he said yes! ^_^

Imaginary Karin - engagement 2012

On Friday evening, after dinner, I set the scene in the kitchen with some fancy ice-cream desserts and lit candles. On his side of the table, I placed a stuffed bunny holding a heart and a handwritten love letter with reasons why I love him. He sat down, read it and then I took out the box with the rings, dropped on one knee and asked him to marry me.

I knew he would say yes as we’ve been talking about it for years, but I was still a nervous wreck! I’m so glad I decided to do it at home, just him and me and not out in public somewhere :P

FYI: Markus wants me to make it perfectly clear that he did NOT cry. No, no he did not.
Ok, maybe one manly tear, but no more. Honest.

    Congratulations!! I’ve been told I’m never allowed to ask my boyfriend to marry me because he will say no. I’m glad your guy is not like mine.

      That’s too bad :P Since day one Markus has said that he shouldn’t have to propose just because he’s a man. “That’s pretty sexist, isn’t it?” ;)
