The Story Of It All – Our Engagement!
I don’t typically share a huge amount about my relationships and family through BareVitality. Firstly because they don’t have a huge relevance to health and fitness. But also because its nice separating parts of my personal life for just that, personal moments to savour.
My now finance and my Engagement Story however I feel is one of those life chapters to share and celebrate with all. I preach to live each day with an open heart, so here is a bit of my love story. With some bits saved to be treasured as our own secret memories!
The Story Of It All 💍
It started with a surprise trip in which I found out the destination once we were at the airport terminal on a Friday morning!!
Destination: The Margaret River 📍
My amazing now Fiancé had planned a full itinerary for our weekend, which mostly consisted of wineries & restaurants + a few active adventures!
The Saturday morning he had planned for us to go for a jog up to the lighthouse near where we were staying. We met running, so it has always been something we have enjoyed sharing together.
Along the run he suggested we stop by a little secluded cove he had read about to see if we could spot any whales. 🐳
So we did… and there just after 6am on a still & beautiful morning, he asked me to marry him!! 💍
I said YES & then the whales appeared on cue 5 minutes later! (This actually happened)
The rest of the day included somehow finishing our run, yoga, wineries, a beautiful 6 course lunch & then enjoying the sunset over the beach!
It was the most perfect day 💕
Then exhausted with excitement I think we were asleep by 8pm!!
I am so incredibly grateful to be able to spend the rest of my life with my best friend & the most gentle soul I know 💜
It is important to remember, there is no such thing as “the perfect relationship”. Its about just treasuring all those special personal moments and becoming stronger with each challenge that comes about! This is what makes a relationship that much more magical and real!!
