Festive Sparkle - December 2018
Long time reader, first time poster! I've decided to write a thread as I've read so many lovely ones by you guys, and thought it would be a nice thing to look back on in the future. Why start today? We've just booked our venue and are very excited!!
A little about us and our wedding planning journey.
How We Met
H2B and I met in our first year at University. It was the second degree for both of us and we were both studying the same course. I was in a long-term relationship at the start of the year but this soon ended for a variety of reasons. H2B and I hung around in a similar group and became friends first. The Christmas of our first year there was a berevement in the family and after returning from some time at home, H2B was always there for me. He's just one of those people that has a calming presence without necessarily having to say anything. A few weeks later we got together and haven't looked back since!
Our first official date was to a little Greek restaurant in our University town. Lovely meal and we got along so well. We have very similar senses of humour and he's very easy to talk to. That and he's tall, dark and handsome - I knew I was on to a winner.
Things went well and we moved in together after around 18 months. On completing our degrees we moved from the University town across the UK and settled down here with new jobs. Needless to say not long after we moved in, family and friends starting asking about engagements, even more so once we started our careers.
