So last weekend my boyfriend came up to Newcastle to visit me (he lives in Adelaide - long story) to celebrate my birthday a week early. On the Thursday night after dinner with all my family he gave me a voucher to go hot air ballooning. Hot Air Ballooning has been on my bucket list for ever so I lost my shit a little bit when I found out I'd be doing it in less than 48 hours. Saturday morning we were up at 4am to drive out to the Hunter Valley to watch the sunrise from a Hot Air Balloon. Needless to say it was freeeezing! Hot Air Ballooning was better than I'd even imagined - I wasn't even the tiniest bit scared - strangely it feels really secure, just as if you were standing on the ground. The view was absolutely stunning... but then.... Tristan pointed down to the ground where I saw a man rolling out a banner that said "Will you Marry Me?" I turned around to look at Tristan and he was down on one knee asking me that very question (with a diamond ring in his hand). Of course I said YES!!! It was the very best proposal ever; super romantic and a BIG gesture but still private (we had our own hot air balloon to ourselves) and you couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces all day!! We haven't set a date yet but I wouldn't have a clue how to organise a wedding so if anyone has any tips please comment and share them. Where do I even start?
After all that I've still got my actual birthday coming up this Monday. Keeping it casual and just going out for dinner with family :) I got another early birthday present last week from my favourite cousin - A parcel all the way from NZ packed to the brim with all my favourite chocolates: Pinky bars, Pineapple lumps, Pixie Caramels, Reeses Cups, Peanut Butter M&M's and my fave foundation from NZ that I can't get here. She also wrote me the most beautiful letter - was totally unexpected and amazing. Thanks Becks!!
Winter has been making me super dehydrated so I'm trying to make a conscious effort to drink more water. I'm also planning a blog post in the next couple of weeks of my Top 5 Hydrating Products.
