I Have Wonderful News To Share ..

Hello my dear friends,

today I have wonderful news to share with all of you. I couldn't tell you before and it was so hard to keep this secret but now I can share!! My daughter's boyfriend Ryan proposed to her on the weekend and she said 'yes'!!

It was so neat because all of his friends and family were there to help. Ryan had made up clues to special places  that were important to the both of them and at each place there was a friend or family member that had a new clue for her and at the end all the first letters of each clue spelt 'first kiss' and it was at the place where they had their first kiss four years ago, which was in a park at a lovely wooden pavilion, where Ryan proposed...

Ryan was there waiting for her ... and my baby girl had no idea what was going to happen. Afterwards she told us she thought it was about their 4 year anniversary that is coming up. She was so stunned when Ryan suddenly got down on one knee and pulled the ring out of his pocket ( I know all this because Ryan's friend Andrew filmed the entire thing) ... and she said yes!!! After that they were going for dinner and another surprise for my daughter was that we all were already waiting for them which was part of a fantastic day for every one! And is was so nice because my husband was home from work for all this aswell. I am one happy Mom today because my baby girl is so happy!

Right now I only have a few photos to share but once the others are ready I will share them too with you of course.

My baby girl Ashleigh and her fiance Ryan.

This is the park where they had their first kiss and in the gazebo he proposed to her.

Their lovely cake ... with a little miss spelling but it didn't matter at all!

As you can see, my weekend was very eventful and full of happiness. I didn't get any time what so ever to create and I am hoping I will do so very soon. I also haven't been able to do any work in my garden/back yard neither so this coming week is going to be another very busy one. I hope that you will visit me here at Todolwen very soon again and until then ...

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
