THE PROPOSAL

FOR CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS WE WENT BACK HOME TO AUSTRALIA TO BE WITH FAMILY. BEFORE WE GOT TO MELBOURNE, WE STOPPED OVER IN QUEENSLAND FOR A FEW DAYS TO RELAX JUST THE TWO OF US (THIS WAS 100% MY IDEA NOT HIS, SO AT THIS POINT I WAS COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS TO WHAT HE WAS PLANNING)
ONE MORNING WE WERE SITTING AT BREAKFAST AND HE GOES TO ME "SO I'VE GOT DINNER PLANNED TONIGHT" I THOUGHT OH, CUTE ITS BEEN ALMOST 4 YEARS AND HE'S FINALLY SURPRISING ME WITH SOMETHING LOL! MIND YOU, I WAS STILL COMPLETELY UNAWARE ABOUT THE PROPOSAL. SO THE TIME CAME TO GET READY AND I WAS TRYING TO GET IT OUT OF HIM WHERE WE WERE GOING, BUT HE DIDN'T GIVE ME ANYTHING... SO WE GET IN THE CAB AND ROCK UP TO THE MARINA - DINNER ON A BOAT I THOUGHT! SO HE WAS LOOKING AROUND FOR THE "BOAT" AND POINTED IN THE DIRECTION OF THAT FLOATING CANAPY THING YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURE (TO THE LEFT-ISH) AND I WAS LIKE UM OKAY I'M SCARED THAT'S TINY, AND HE GOES NO THAT'S THEIR OFFICE, WE'RE GOING ON THE GONDOLA NEXT TO IT! I SHIT MYSELF NOT GONNA LIE, IT WAS EVEN SMALLER AND SO DAMN CLOSE TO THE WATER, BUT ONCE I GOT IN IT WAS REAL COMFY AND SO CUTE, HE HAD CHOCOLATES, FLOWERS, MY FAVOURITE MOSCATO AND A 2 COURSE MEAL PLANNED! WHAT WAS EVEN BETTER, IT WAS JUST THE TWO OF US!
SO, I BET NOW YOU'RE THINKING COME ON YOU HAD TO KNOW HE WAS GOING TO PROPOSE... I LITERALLY STILL HAD NO IDEA! SO WE WERE ON THE GONDOLA FOR ABOUT AN HOUR AND A BIT, THEN HE SAID HE WANTED TO GO TO THE BEACH... MIND YOU IT was ABOUT TO STORM AND THE PEOPLE TOLD US TO HEAD STRAIGHT HOME, BUT HE wAS ADAMANT ABOUT GOING TO THE BEACH! I COMPLETELY SHUT down HIS IDEA AND SAID NO WAY LETS GO HOME IT'S GONNA RAIN...
SO WE GET HOME BACK TO THE HOTEL, AND I WALK IN FIRST AND THERES ALL ROSE PETALS LAID OUT ON THE FLOOR AND THE BED. AGAIN, I WAS COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS AND JUST SAID TO HIM "AW BOBS DID YOU PLAN THIS, HOW CUTE" AND I PROCEEDED TO TAKE MY SHOES OFF AND PUT THE FLOWERS IN WATER ETC, THEN HE GOES TO ME "SHAN YOU KNOW THERE'S A REASON I'VE DONE ALL THIS..."
I FROZE AND SWORE A FEW TIMES, BALLED MY EYES OUT AND YEAH HE PROPOSED! 
THERE ARE SO MANY FUNNY STORIES THAT HE TOLD ME ABOUT THE LEAD UP TO IT, BUT I WON'T GET INTO THEM, I'LL BE HERE FOR DAYS! HERE ARE SOME PICTURES OF THE NIGHT, AND OUR NEW TATTOOS (DONE BY THE INCREDIBLE @FINE.LINE.TATTOOS)
