SB turns into SF!

Mmmmm.......this is a long post...
Hold on to your hats folks!
(you may want to keep it for a special occasion)

My very, very special SB and I shared a wonderful sun filled day on Saturday.
We smooched around Totnes.....lazily stopped for coffee....bought some nibbles from the deli to eat later in my garden.
I found a plant that I had coveted since seeing it outside the hotel in Florence last year...

...and it's now adorning the front of my house. :)

Garden is looking good at the moment by the way.

The poppies are a special favourite.

We made a small detour to Broadsands beach on the way home and walked by the sea listening to the waves rolling in, watching the birds as they flew by.....stopping to sit on a bench to admire the view, chat, kiss and cuddle ;)

And then...
...and then...

Yes...he asked me the big question!
You know the one?

"Sioux?"...he paused...
...I turned to him and said "yes...?"

"Will you marry me?"

I paused...
...I said YES! :)

So Special Boyfriend is now Special Fiancé ;)

This is a whirlwind I know...but when something is right it is right and this is soooo right :)
We are so right for each other...we love each other...we want to grow old together...
...although, as you know, I already have a head start on him on that score!!! ROFLIA ;)

We celebrated later in the garden with rosé Cava (of course!)

and shared an al fresco spread.
(Elder flowers picked near Elberry Farm on our circular walk back to the car)

A perfect day in so many ways.

We watched Casablanca together in the evening...although I managed to nod off about half an hour from the end!!!
He said he did not want to wake me as he was enjoying me sleeping in his arms?
Special huh?

He is the hero I was holding out for :)

Going to have to find a ring needs to be just right...
...oh dear I suspect this could take some time! ;)

xoxo Sioux
