A girl at work just got engaged while she was on sick leave.
She was actually meant to be on holiday leave, but came down with serious illness a couple of days before they were due to go to Europe and they had to cancel it. Her boyfriend had planned to propose in Paris but did it in Narrogin local hospital instead.
She is totally okay now and got back to work yesterday. She has filled us in on the juicy details of the proposal, family & friend reactions, showing off her beautiful ring.. She is still buzzing with excitement and it is contagious! (unlike her her illness, thankfully)
Seeing her so giddy reminded me of just how awesome those first few weeks of engagement are.. there is nothing like it!
I'm sure being newly married will feel pretty amazing as well.. but newly engaged is its own kind of special.

My favourite part of getting engaged was telling people the good news.. Even though I'd mentioned our ring shopping to a couple of my nearest and dearest, it was fun surprising everyone else with the breaking news. And I was really touched by how stoked everyone was for us
And even better I loved listening to the Mr announcing the news to his friends and family.. He sounded so excited and proud and phrased it 'We're getting married!!', (rather than 'we got engaged!!' which was how I said it) but hearing those words from him was so nice. ahhhh
