Thinking about the idea of leaving your twenties can also be scary. But, I got so happy to have finally celebrated my 30th birthday in one of the most romantic and beautiful places in the world. If you are following this blog, you must have seen the travel photo diaries I have shared about these destinations. You can find it here and here.
A lot of people were asking me how I feel about turning 30. But to me, I always say that I don’t feel anything. I actually felt kinda cool turning 30. Hihihi. I was never bothered about my age (at least to date. LOL)
Little did I know that leaving my twenties will lead to a new and exciting chapter in my life. I was completely oblivious that this will happen anytime soon. Especially not on the night of my birthday — but it did! Thomas asked me to spend the rest of his life together with me — and I graciously answered yes to that. 🙂
I just turned 30 in this photo – fresh AF. LOLI never imagined how he will propose to me and I couldn’t have thought of any better way than the way he simply did it. Short story of how it happened, we were getting dressed for my birthday dinner and I asked him to take a photo of me at our hotel room’s balcony after I finished fixing myself. When suddenly he just decided to take one photo and turned away to get something from his luggage. I was getting a little bit confused of what was going on — when he started by telling me he had to tell me something. He went on with a little speech (while there was a song playing in the background) and everything else was a blur when he got down on one knee and showed me this sparkly ring!
This is the memorable balcony.
One hot summer night – I don’t feel fresh AF anymore because of all the sun we went through in the morning. :)) Also, the only photo I had before I cried buckets. LOL.
Ready to take on the world for my birthday dinner!
We had a simple dinner at the Le Procope (which apparently is one of the oldest restaurant/cafe’s in Paris) for my birthday/engagement (still makes me melt even just by typing it) celebration.
We have been quietly celebrating this happy news with our closest family and friends because I was actually a little bit hesitant in sharing this little milestone in my life to a lot of people (took me a month to keep things private within our small circle). But I just wanted to share how I feel too. Maybe to let it sink in to me? (it still quite hasn’t sunk into me — I’m getting married???!!! (blushes)). After all, this blog is my home, a medium of expression. Home for my thoughts and experiences.
I’m actually still sporting the ring on my middle finger since we haven’t had it resized yet.
I sometimes find myself spaced out in awe and disbelief. But, the following morning, we went to Disneyland and it somehow made things back to normal. Hahaha. I was a kid again! :))
Every Princess deserves a Prince and Castle!
How about you? How would/did you feel leaving your twenties?
