How We Met

He had the bluest eyes I’d ever seen, and from then on I was in somewhat of a stupor.
I was shaking. I can’t explain it, but I felt like I was dreaming.

My mind was racing with thoughts of how completely perfect he was,
but how completely awful it felt to be entertaining thoughts of another relationship so soon after my last one ended.

I think that second ‘date’ with sam, I really fell in love.

When Sam wrapped his arms around me from behind and just held me there as we stood.
I can’t explain it, but it just felt… right!

And ever since that day i’m happy again, i am complete.

sometimes we need to know what something feels like when it’s wrong
before we can ever really know it when another thing is RIGHT.

How He Asked

Although I knew Sam was the one the day I met him, I had no idea what to expect as far as when and how he’d pop the question. Well… let me tell you, it was magical andsweet. We were at home, romantic and relaxed, which is perfectly very “us. when Sam got down on one knee I completely blacked out! It was like a rush of heat and a wave of uncontrollable emotion swept right through my body. I didn’t have any words at first (me! no words!). All I could do was explode into his arms and experience pure joy from head to toe. Being engaged didn’t truly hit me until I started saying “fiancé” out loud. “My fiancé loves that song. Let me check my fiancé’s schedule. Have you met my fiancé?” It’s crazy! I have to say, being engaged actually does feel different. There is a sense of strength in us, a feeling of being further grounded but most of all, it just makes me really happy! The ring itself makes me feel very feminine and takes my breath away every time I look down, which I can’t stop doing, by the way. When it comes to taking it off, forget it. I’ll even wake up in the middle of the night to make sure it’s still there! I never thought I’d be the girl sticking her hand out to her friends and screaming out loud “I’M ENGAGED” ..but here I am.

I am the luckiest girl in the world! i do sam palinckx, i do !! <3
