Five years ago today, Brit Boy and I were engaged to be married. We were visiting Stourhead which is a beautiful estate in southwest Wiltshire. I had no idea that this would be the day that he would propose to me. I was over here for a visit and I just thought it was a nice day out. We walked around the main house on the estate and then we set out for a walk around all the trails through the beautiful gardens. There are several other buildings on the site that peek out of the trees. It's gorgeous there.
A small shower happened at one point and we waited it out under the trees. Then as we made it around to the foot bridge, the sun came out. Brit Boy coaxed me over to this bridge and as I was looking at this beautiful scene across the lake, while we stood on the bridge, he popped the question.
It was so lovely and the biggest surprise of my life. We both knew we were headed that way, but I didn't know it was this particular day. (smile) So Stourhead holds a special place in my heart.
So this morning, Brit Boy went out early to do an errand and I didn't go with him since I needed to study. Well, he comes back into the house with a big bunch of flowers for me to commemorate this romantic day in our lives. (smile)
What a wonderful day this will always be!
