I'M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep, after 5 wonderful years together my beautiful partner Alex finally popped the big question. Of course I said yes straight away. I am so happy!!!

I have been back from our holiday for a few days now, and have been dying to post about my big news, but we have been telling the family and I didn't want them to read it here first before we got to tell them in person.

Our holiday was sooooo much fun! Neither of us wanted to come home. The weather was beautiful the whole time so we spent a lot of time in the pool or at the beach, which was just across the road. I really would love to move up to the Sunshine Coast to live one day soon. It is such an amazing place.

Here are a few pics from our holiday -

My fiance (he he!) out at breakfast one morning


Me enjoying my coffee


The ocean across the road from our hotel room


Me in the hotel pool


This beach had a lot of rock pools and you can see the lighthouse in the distance on the cliff


A view from the cliff where the lighthouse sits. We went up there one evening to watch the sun set. It was so beautiful, the photos just don't do it justice!


Another view from the cliff. A lot of people go surfing down there


I am looking forward to catching up on every ones blogs now and seeing what you have all been up to while I was away. Have a great week :)
