A Love Story .......

Imagine the scene, A boy and girl who have been together for 10 years to the day. They are walking down the beach, he is acting very strange, a little bit nervous maybe??? She is wondering why they are on their favourite beach when they should be at her brother's house for a get together.



He then calls her, she stops, he gets down on one knee and takes out a beautiful ring and asks her to marry him ... she of course said ....



Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just after coming up from the beach .....





The next day, they spent the night in their favourite hotel, enough said about that, not for sisters to know .....



Showing her beautiful ring.

I "borrowed" the above photos from their camera, I think I have them in the right order! I never knew how rosemantic my brother is!!! He arranged all this by himself, no one and I mean no one knew what was happening. He got the ring the week before telling Mairead that he had to work and couldn't spend the day with her. Booked the hotel and meal. Told Mairead that they were going to her brother's house for a little get together and she should bring some nice clothes. Then whisked her away to their favourite spot Dingle in Kerry (does anyone know about Fungi the dolphin, he stays in the bay of Dingle, go here to find out about more if you want, years ago Steve, Chloe and myself went to see him which we did, so exciting, I do have photos somewhere, but God knows where), he got down on one knee and proposed to her!!!!!!!!! Then they rang everyone, I was at the carnival so I didn't here my phone go off!!!! When Steve finally got hold of me and told me I couldn't of been happier!!!!!!

They were going out for a meal at a very posh restaurant on the Saturday we were in Ireland so they got all dressed up, I thought perfect chance for a photo op!!!! They went to Darina Allen's restaurant, she is an Irish chef, TV personality and founder of Ballymaloe Cookery School. This was Mairead's engagment present to John! They said it was fantastic and the food was beautiful and they got lots, even came around and asked them if they wanted seconds.

I took the following photos in my mum and dads front garden/yard! Beautiful isn't it!




Don't they look happy!


Doesn't he have good taste, he picked this ring out himself, beautiful!!!

Congratulations to both of them, and I really do hope they will have a very happy future!

ROSEmantic - was that deliberate? Wether or not it was, it's a lovely word you invented and really fits the story well.

WOW what a lovely event and what great photos. It's SO good to have happy news amongst all the serious stuff that's going on at the moment and what a lovely Irish smile!

Awwwww when you told me all about this yesterday, I thought how special a day it must have been, it so rarely happens nowadays that a young man can be so thoughtful and romantic, I hope they have a long and very happy life together, the cove looks like paradise and the perfect setting for such a perfect moment, thanks for sharing it XXX
