Let's start at the beginning :)
In februari, right after my exams, we went to New York for a (short) 2 weeks visit. And yes, we kind of already talked about getting married during the summer of 2013, but we didn't really settle a date or anything.
What I didn't know, is that my (then still) boyfriend, was carrying an engagement ring with him all the time. And what's even more surprisingly shocking: my uncle (who is a goldsmith) made the engagement ring! So it's a pièce unique (love it!).
So the first days we walked around (and shopped A LOT) in New York city, neither of us had visited the city before so it was very exciting for us :)
I thought it wasn't such a good plan to go to the park that day, but Dries insisted on going. AWKWARD.
That morning, during breakfast (chocolate & blueberry muffin), he wanted to go check in our room if the vault was closed properly. EVEN MORE AWKWARD.
He was walking around like he didn't know what to do, like he forgot something. And then, off we went, to central park, through the snow, through the wind,...
Right before entering the park, I really wanted coffee, because I was cold. Dries wasn't that happy about that. AWKWAAAAARD :) He wanted to head to the park as fast as possible. And in that very moment, where he doubted about getting coffee, I knew.
He was acting way too mysterious. All of a sudden I realised he was going to propose. It had to be...
Because I supspected him of asking me later on, I sipped my coffee in the slowest way ever (haha!), just to double check. Oh my, how I loved his face, all nervous :)
After a bit of chillin, warming up and sipping coffee way too slowly, we started our walk into Central Park.
It was so beautiful! Because of the snow, there wasn't anybody visiting the park and it was all fairy kind of things!
All of a sudden, we arrived at the lake in the middle of the park. He stopped. We were both quiet. He looked at me. And inside, I started panicking a little bit.
He looked at me with those "so in love, when he first met me, staring" eyes. And he hugged me and popped the question. Out of the blue, without a ring, a bit confused haha!
My first reaction was "no no nooooo" because I was a bit in shock, but right after that came the magical word YES :) So then he took out the ring, went on his knees and put it around my finger. It was so cute!
As you can see it was snowing quite hard and there was no one in the neighbourhood (except for our photographer hah!)
