My H2B has never been the most romantic person but he does try. He is motorbike mad and is forever spending money (you will see why I am telling you this later!) Everybody knows that this drives me insane.
I had always dreamed of visiting Antigua and had even thought about one day getting married there. I had always told H2B this but didn't really think he had taken it in but whilst on a carribean cruise in January with family he chose the day we were in Antigua to ask me to be his wife!!
Once we had departed the cruise ship we all took a taxi and were taken to long bay beach. He had been acting funny all morning but I thought nothing of it. Once we had got settled in our loungers he stood me up in front of everybody. Then his step mother had her Ipod docked on speakers and started playing a Luther Vandross song in the background who I loooove by the way.
He started by saying he knew he wasn't romantic enough and had written me a poem!! I started crying straight away like a big girl!! He had written the poem himself and read it out quite quickly because he is so nervous! Here it is
I thought I'd write a poem so that I could tell you so.
We have our family, Simba & the bike lives in the kitchen
Spending money is my hobby, you know I'm always itching!
I hope you love this holiday, especially today
I've wrote these words on paper, just in case I couldn't say
I have been making plans without you, I hope you didn't mind
Antigua was the place you loved & now it is our time
Well here we are with family, the beach, the sky, the sand.
I wondered if you would accept this ring and also take my hand.
Susan will you marry me??
We had the most amazing day and then we all had a lovely meal in the evening back on the ship! They has even made us an engagement cake!!
Hope you like my story!
