Engaged after 11 years together - finally planning our big day!
Well since I now we have our hearts set on a venue, I suppose I can start a planning thread!
I'm Catherine, mum to Stevie, who is four, and Lucy who is just three months. I got engaged on Valentine's Day to their wonderful father, Steve, my partner of eleven years.
Steve and I met twenty years ago. I was an awkward eleven year old, he a horrible thirteen year old. We went to the local leisure centre with our big sisters who were best friends, he asked me out and became my first ever boyfriend. We even held hands once. Our romance lasted a whole two weeks.
Nine years later, after a long time chatting over good old MSN, he asked me out again. We went to a local pub on 20th October 2006 and we've been a couple ever since. We've had three homes, two children, one dog, and now the next big adventure: planning to celebrate our marriage....
