Life In Dubai

I’m Engaged!

Surprise, I am engaged! Mamdouh and I went away for a few days to Fujairah, and while we were there, I got the shock of my life and became a Fiancé!! It still feels really weird saying that, but I am over the moon. I will write all about our trip to Fujairah in a separate post, but on the first night of our ‘staycation’, we had booked a table at a seafood restaurant on the beach in the evening. We were having a couple of mocktails on the decking to begin with, watching the sunset, just before it happened.

We then walked over to a lovely spot just in front of the beach to take some photos where he got down on one knee and proposed!!! I honestly thought it was a prank and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the most beautiful, stunning ring! Of course, I said YES immediately! It was such a special moment that I will never forget.

We then went inside the restaurant to our table where I couldn’t stop staring at the ring! As it was a celebration, I ordered the most expensive thing on the menu, and my absolute favourite – Lobster! The meal was delicious and there was a live band playing too which was really nice.

We finished up and came outside to the most beautiful full moon. We had a little walk around the hotel which had the most stunning grounds filled with palm trees, fire pits and water features. It felt so surreal and we couldn’t wait to get back to our room and call our family and friends to tell them the news!

It really was the most perfect evening and I am so so so happy!

The 5th July will be a date to remember!

Thanks for reading.
