June 11th was the day Alexander popped the question and on the 13th September we got matching tattoo's with the number 11 :) cute right hehe...
Now that we are engaged the wedding and all that is not something that we are in a hurry to do, even though people may think so just because we are engaged at a "young age". We wanna take our time and enjoy being young (and stupid).
Marriage is something serious for me. It is something that I'd like to have time to think about, so I don't end up like one of those people who get divorced. It's not that I don't love my man (only God knows how much I love him) but I think that marriage requires a mature mentality and your heart at the right place... It should not be a spontaneous thing or arranged it should just feel natural. Sadly there is a loooot of people in this world who are getting married for the wrong reasons and I simply don't wanna be a part of it!
I personally want to grown as an individual and as a woman in able to give my all to the person I love and know that I'm getting married for all the right reasons -honesty-commitment-passion-
The how it happened part
So, he came and met my mother and told her, ‘I'm in love with your daughter, I want to spend the rest of my life with her. We want to live together… So I want to ask you for her hand’ My mom was pretty cool about it and gave him her blessings. Nevertheless, one day out of nowhere while we were having a deep conversation he asked me to marry for the second time and I said yes. Later on that week he told he parents that we were engaged.
And to mark the date we got the number 11 tattooed, why? well because it's a "ring" we never can take of, it will be with me no matter what, just to remind me of that my love for him is something that will stay with me forever.
He managed to surprise me again the day after his birthday, by giving me his grandmothers wedding ring :0 I seriously was about to die at this point, just to think that I had inherit something out of true love.
His grandparent met right about the same age as us and they were together for about 47 years and for me that is true love :) And that's why I'm so luck to carry something that symbolizes that kind of love that I want to have with him.
This is such a bliss and it's gotta be the most romantic thing a guy has ever done for me. And I truly hope that our love will last forever, as I at this point can't see a life without him, as he still that guy who can give me butterflies and make me fall in love over and over again.
I really hope for everyone(every girl) that they will get to experience love like this, cause there is no greater feeling that love. It keeps you smiling and alive, and you feel like you can conquer anything in this world....
