We're engaged!

I have always wondered why women cover their face or mouth with their hand during a proposal. I did it when I saw him on one bent knee when we were in Paris. I consciously fought my hand to go to my face but I had to because I was already bawling but I wanted to see him so instead of covering my eyes I just covered my mouth.


We saw this picture before we went to Paris and we joked about making sure that he will not tie his shoelace near the Eiffel Tower.

Shoelace! Is this a joke? Are you serious? But you're sick and we almost canceled this tour? You planned for this? When did you decide? OMG you're serious!

Those were my thoughts in the exact same order.

Ritchie booked a photography tour on August 19, 2015 for us to see the most common tourist sites of Paris to take pictures and have our pictures taken. It was the most reasonable thing to do because according to him, he knows how much I would love to have good pictures from Paris.

The night before the tour, he wasn't feeling really well so I suggested for us to cancel it. I wanted him to rest because I don't want him to be sick during the entire 3 weeks trip. He said that we can't cancel the tour anymore, so he just took a lot of medicines and drank a lot of tea.

The photography tour lasted for 3 hours and I was already complaining because we were walking around Paris for that long under the heat of the sun.  The photographer that he hired took a lot of pictures of us doing our own thing. It was like a dream come true! We have a paparazzi following us and taking our moments together. I have always wished that somebody will secretly take a snap of our sweetest moments together because I would really want to preserve them.

Like during those multiple times when he carried me because I was already tired of walking with my heels on. Those times when he would sing or dance to make me laugh. Those days when I get a headache or when my muscles are stiff so he will give me a massage. Those days when he will carry whatever I am carrying even if it is my shoulder bag. When he will give me kisses on my forehead just because... I am so thankful that we had a paparazzi that day! He insisted that we slow dance near the Louvre Museum while the 2 musicians were playing. I said no because it was embarassing but he dragged me. It's one of the sweetest moments in my life. =D

I can't wait for us to have a church wedding. I can't wait to marry this amazing person that God gave me to share my life with.

*Thank you bheng for giving me this experience. I love you!
