It was Friday the 13th, a day that has always been considered unlucky.
It started like any normal day, my Fiance,Hein left for work and I started cleaning up around the house.
I usually love Fridays because there isn't much cleaning to do and Hein gets home early, but this particular Friday I was having a tough day, my 1 year old baby girl,Abigail was sick and very fussy, I phoned Hein and practically begged him to come home early.
He ended up only coming home at around 6pm, which is much later than usual, little did I know it was because he was stuck in traffic after picking up my ring! I finally got the little one settled down and asleep, when he told me to put something nice on and do my makeup because we'll be having a date night (in our own lounge ;) )- after the day I had, date night was the last thing on my mind! But I appreciated the sweet gesture and went to our bedroom to get ready - where he made me promise that I would wait there until he called me.
After what seemed like a really long time, He called me and I walked into this:

I had no idea that he was going to propose but I started tearing up when I saw how much effort he put into it.
We sat down and had some wine and chocolate, then he took my hand and he said that he had one more surprise for me, he went down on one knee
and he sang "you are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy, will you marry me?" then he opened the ring box, but my eyes were filled with happy tears and all I could see was a shiny blur ;). Of course I said  YES! 

Except for the birth of my daughter Friday the 13th of September 2013 was the most beautiful day of my life,
I still can't believe how lucky I am to have found my soul mate this early in life, I look forward  to making a lifetime of memories with him  and I can't wait to start planning our wedding!
