A Croatian Proposal!

I will try to get back to some crafty blogging soon... but I have some very exciting news!  The title of the post gives it away... I have just had an amazing holiday in Croatia, during which my boyfriend, Rob, proposed!

Despite hoping for a while that he would propose, it still came as a complete and utter shock to me!  I had no idea he had been working away secretly to get this ring made and that he'd sneaked it away on holiday with us!

We had gone on a day trip to Dubrovnik, and little did I know he'd been trying to conceal the big ring box shape in his shorts pocket all during the long coach trip and then the 90 minute guided tour.  We finally got some time on our own to walk the city walls, where I was chattering away obliviously, until he got down on one knee.  I was so stunned, I forgot to say yes at first!

It was such a perfect location for it - the views over Dubrovnik were stunning!

Not a bad view for a proposal, eh?  It was so exciting - I couldn't believe it had happened!

The rest of the holiday was amazing too - Croatia is such a beautiful country, I really loved it.  We went on a speed boat one day, which was incredible.  We swam in the lagoon below...

... and stopped for a drink overlooking this beautiful quiet spot...

I don't want to bombard you with holiday photos, so will leave it there.  If you ever get the chance to go to Croatia, however, I can wholeheartedly recommend it - even without the proposal!

  4. Congratulations! Croatia looks beautiful, I often see it advertised but to be honest never took an interest. I guess I should give it a go, it looks lovely, especially that clear water x
