Today was my Birthday, and it was a good day, yesterday, Rachael and I's relationship took a step forward. 2 years and 4 months ago, it was Rachael's 26th birthday, and the day before we decided to try our hands at a relationship, and so it began.
I like how events in time can mimic those that have come before, and as such I settled on yesterday to be the most suitable date to metaphorically pop the question. I set candles in mason jars on the stairs, laid some candles around the house, bought and sorted out a dozen roses, and had a song prepared.
I gave nothing away, the house was as it was all morning, Rachael returned from lunch and we had lunch as usual, and then she headed back out for work, and that is when I found time to strike. I tidied all the important rooms, cleaned all the dishes, and was clearly in the right gear when getting all of the stuff done, because I found myself with two hours with nothing to do. I couldn't get anything done as I was nervous, as is hopefully understandable.
Last night was a whirlwind of an evening, but it went very smoothly. There was a lot of communications, and it was a good time.
Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!
