Michael and I have been together for three years. Last Sunday, as I walked in the door after driving home from Adelaide, he suggested we go for a walk.

We went down to the Merri Creek, and he asked me to listen to a song he'd been writing, and proffered his iPhone and headphones.

I listened.

It was a beautiful song.

It was also a proposal.

(with a ring!)

I said yes.

We couldn't be happier.

(here is the ring again - it's white gold with sapphire and teeny diamonds in an Art Deco style setting. Needless to say, I adore it.)
