I'm Engaged!

Hello my lovely readers. So if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you'll have seen that I'm engaged!! But I wanted to share the news with you guys on my blog and to go in to more detail.

Dan and I have known each other for 4 and a half years, we met in a night out (which I don't remember much of thanks to alcohol, tut, tut.). After a year of being friends we became a couple and it's been the best years of my life. Dan is my best friend and love of my life, no matter what happens he always looks after me and supports me. I am very lucky to have him and so grateful that he is the one I'm going to share my life with.

So as you'll know Dan and I were in Tokyo at the time which was already a dream come true. On our second to last day we climbed Mount Takao which was absolutely stunning and incredible and despite looking as red as a tomato and covered in sweat (lovely image) I was unbelievably happy. I became even happier when we saw Mount Fuji perfectly clearly, a thing that we heard could happen but doubted we would be able to. 

After staying at the summit soaking in the view and the sunshine we headed back down. We took route 6 down which involved a lot of stepping stones and streams, it was the sort of route that would be closed off in England as it would probably be deemed "unsafe" but it was so much fun finding a way over the stones and round tree roots.

Eventually, we came to a bridge next to Biwa Waterfall, it was so peaceful and there was no one around. When I turned to Dan he was on one knee and asked me to marry him, cue me bursting into happy, hysterical sobbing and obviously I said yes! 

It was honestly the most amazing moment of my life and I am so excited to start planning our wedding. There's no date set as I am broke for the foreseeable future but that just gives us lots of time to plan and organise things. So there will probably be some wedding related posts coming up on the blog soon. 

I hope you all enjoyed reading about my engagement I am so unbelievably happy right now and looking forward to this next step in my future.

Thanks for reading!
