We're engaged!!

Hello!! Eeeek it's been a while! As most of you who follow us on twitter probably know, we went off on our hols to the Czech Republic for 10 days. When we go away we like to go completely internet cold turkey...partly because we're terrified how much our phone bill will be and partly because it's just nice to have a break every now and then! We spent almost a week in Prague and then travelled by train down to Český Krumlov which is a MAGICAL little town we visited when travelling 4 years ago. The architecture is like something out of a weird fairytale, the castle tower is surrounded by bears...yep bears! And the river which runs through the town is stunning and always full of rafters braving the rapids. If you can get a good seat in a riverside bar it's VERY entertaining...lots of capsizing! We did it 4 years ago but were too wimpy this time!
Oh...and so back to the title of this post, we got engaged!!! :o) :o) :o) After seven and a half years together Jam decided he liked it and wanted to put a ring on it! The poor boy was apparently carrying the ring around for days trying to decide where the perfect location would be. He did very well, Český Krumlov is such a magical romantic place close to both our hearts. He picked a lovely spot in a quiet park by the river, under a willow tree! 
I was also totally blown away by his ring choice! Bought in the Brighton Lanes (where my Mum got her wedding ring!) it's gold with a pink sapphire with two little diamonds...a total Princess ring! I'd never really given much thought to what sort of ring I'd like other than I knew a coloured stone would be lovely. This is so me it's ridiculous. The boy did good!
To commemorate this exciting event we almost immediately purchased two matching 'I heart Český Krumlov' t-shirts...I never said we weren't total losers!
Our accommodation was owned by a crazy painter, performance artist and drag queen...sadly we didn't get to meet him though!
Český Krumlov is full of amazing street art like these paper pigeons which we were a tad besotted with. You noticed so many different things every time you walked down the street.


  1. Oh congratulations you lovely things. What an amazing place to get engaged. Aw. *wells up*

  2. Lovely to hear more of the story- I'm very glad Jam managed to find the perfect spot, and such a lovely ring :) Český Krumlov looks wonderfully magical; I'm definitely adding it to my "have to visit" list! xxx
    P.s. I love the blue bird dress you're wearing in the last picture - it looks so summery :)

  3. Congratulations!! Your ring is beautiful! :) :) :) x

  4. Congratulations! Your ring is super pretty :) I'm glad you had so much fun there too (well obviously) Your dress in the last picture is simply adorable too!
