I Have A Little News To Share

Yesterday, while I was here my LM proposed!  We had a lovely day wandering around different places on the Ile de Re and just before we set off back to our temporary home in St-Jean-de-Monts he took me to sit where we could look over the harbour wall and hear the water lapping and asked me to become his wife. 
The sun was shining and the vista was just perfect ~ he's been keeping this secret for some time and decided that this was where we should be.  We visited the Ile de Re  about 3 years ago, again while staying at St-Jean-de-Monts, and fell in love with the whole island.
And didn't he do well choosing a ring too ~ I love it!  We need to go back to the jewellers to have it re-sized when we get home ~ which will be all too soon.  This was secretly packed along with a bottle of champagne ~ we won't be bringing that home!
LM took a video of the moment when he asked my Dad for his blessing so as you can imagine there were a few tears when he played this for me yesterday.  The GB's are with us on holiday and are both delighted by the news ~ GB1 has decided that he will be planning the wedding!
I'm off to enjoy my last few days of French life before we all have to return to the world of school and work.

PS  I have been stitching too.
