Wellington love

Written by | 10 comments »

So we return from Wellington a few kilos heavier (who can blame us?!), slightly more tanned, slightly more sleepy and ridiculously in-love because we are now officially engaged!

Ivan proposed to me in a little cottage by the ocean with the most beautiful coast line. Wild, beautiful, ferocious and free, just like our little family.

Why does marriage sound more grownup to me than having a baby? Maybe because we have our baby and it just feels so natural, I dunno. I know that being married will feel natural also, but now that we are officially engaged I just want to start planning our beautiful party with all our family and friends. I am so excited to have all the people I love in one city to celebrate our love for each other and our life together.

We had some family photos taken yesterday that I am excited to share with you, but in the meantime here’s an overwhelming number of photos from our trip to Wellington. It was the most wonderful trip: from the 12 hour train ride with our dream baby, our downtown apartment with the most amazing bath, long walks, silly photo shoots, best friends, ginormous brunches and delicious dinners, free bottles of wine, dancing til early morning and sweating in a hot yoga room to quiet peaceful cottages, BBQs, coastal walks, mountain hiking, beautiful photo shoots, games of hearts and cribbage and perfect quiet moments with my best friend and husband to be. We’ll never forget this trip.
