I feel like I have been given so many opportunities in my life that really challenge me and push me to grow in some new way. I’ve had highs and lows in relationships, mental health, work –just life in general and I can’t help but think about this journey. It’s only just beginning and I am so happy that I am in a place where I feel so comfortable with myself and am proud of who I have become.
This month has been a whirlwind of adventures and it is only just beginning. I had the time of my life in Portugal with my family and…drum roll…my fiancé ♡♡. Yup, my girlfriend, partner, best friend is now my fiancé. I could not have asked for a more magical and intimate proposal. The level of planning to pull off a surprise proposal, in another country, where we dont speak the language, on the top of a mountain..I mean it was just incredible.
We went straight to our mini getaway to Lagos, which was beyond beautiful, and the perfect place to celebrate our engagement. Ah, engagement!! We are engaged and I could not be more happy than I am in this moment. It’s strange because aside from this ring nothing has changed, but everything has changed at the same time. Things have just gotten so clear and I feel so lucky to have found the person that I genuinely want to spend my life with. Where we are both starting from the beginning and building our lives together.
It was overwhelming to see the amount of support we received from friends and family over the last few weeks. It was like all the hate and ignorance was silenced if even for a few moments in time
So incredibly happy ♡ much more to come soon ♡
