Personal: Big Announcement!


Whenever I imagined telling you the news I'm about to tell you, I imagined it to be easier to find the right words. However it turned out that it's a much more personal thing than I had thought. 
It all happened on December 18th, when my boyfriend and I celebrated our 7th anniversary. It is a pretty long time to be together at a comparatively young age, and as 7 is also the magic number of relationships, I had planned to write a post about successfully being a couple. But then my boyfriend did something that made this post oh so insignificant, because he gave me much more exciting news to share. As you can guess by now: We're engaged!
When I think of all the women getting married or giving birth to a child or accomplishing awesome things, an engagement seems pretty humble all of a sudden. However to me it was completely surprising and even though I still feel like the same person, I know this engagement rings in a new chapter of my life.
I will finish my studies this year and hopefully already have a job by the end of 2016, and now getting married is within sight, too. Funnily I don't feel like screaming it out to the world and telling you every detail about the proposal. I haven't even published the news on my private Facebook account yet and just told my family and closest friends. I feel like it's a thing between my boyfriend and me and that only those people should know, who mind spending time with us and sharing our love. In fact the reason why I'm even sharing the news with you guys, is that you have in some way been with me for the last 4 years and you have been sharing the love.
When it comes to my planned post about relationships, I noticed that even though I've been together with my boyfriend for 7 years, this didn't make me a relationship expert. It just works because we make it work and because we love each other so much, that we knew from the very first day, that we can spend the rest of our lives together.

So as you can see 2015 ended on a really good note for me and I wanted to share this happiness with you at the beginning of this new year. Even though the wedding will probably not be this year, yet I'd be glad to share the preparations with you if that's something you're interested in.
