{Best Ever Christmas Present! EVER!}

Was one of these.....

Yes, the boy did good! We are very happy and I'm excited to get planning (if a little nervous at the whole idea!)

So I'm guessing you'll be wanting the 'story' hey? Well it is a story of two sides His & Mine.


K

I had decided from August 2010 that ultimately what I wanted was us to be an official family and all have the same same, the big question was how & when to propose? Leanne's Birthday? Our 9 Year anniversary? But Christmas day seemed perfect as Leanne loves this time of year. I did think about arranging a dinner or going out someone where but I thought at home suited us.
I didn't tell anyone my plans as I felt I couldn't trust anyone to keep it quiet, not in a bad way but good news is something people find hard to keep to themselves. I wanted everything I had planned as it came from MY Heart, not anyone else's.
I spent a long time researching rings while down playing the idea of getting married. Then a week before Christmas after much research I went and bought the ring. I had an idea of the type of ring I wanted to get but I wanted to see them in real life. And when I saw this one I knew it was the one. Now I just had to wait for it to come into the shop. I went to collect the Ring and I actually got a shiver down my spine, like 'this is actually happening'
The plan was now set, I had the ring & the confidence. Just had to keep quiet - which was hard!
Christmas day came, and no going back. I just had to wait for the right moment. I really wanted us to be dressed and not in pj's and before Leanne's parents came round. Once Leanne was getting ready, I knew now was the time. Me being Kevin, I set up the video camera so I could record the moment. I asked Leanne to stand by the tree telling her I wanted to go get her other present so shut your eyes. I then got down on one knew and took her hand and told her to open her eyes.

Me & K have been together for 10 Christmases now. We have a beautiful son together. And I love our life. Sometimes it is not perfect but I don't mind.
I have wanted to be his wife for a long time now but to be honest I got fed up with going on about it. That's why the proposal on Christmas Day took me by such surprise.
K had bought me a Christmas card and had told me that I couldn't open it till he told me too, which I thought maybe it had vouchers in or something! After we had opened all our presents, had breakfast, put M down for a nap, K told me that he would get me other present but I should stand up and shut my eyes. He then told me to open them. OMG. There he was down on one knee with the biggest smile on his face asking me to be his wife. Obviously I said yes. The pure emotion of happiness and joy was running through me. The ring is beautiful.
I was then allowed to open my card which was 'Merry Christmas to my fiance;. I am amazed at the thought he put into the whole this, he really is a romantic I guess. I felt so lucky and blessed at that moment.
Thank you K, I love you.
