Barcelona is our home and we have spent most of our relationship together in this wonderful city. That's why it was clear to me that our engagement also had to take place in Barcelona.
The day of our engagement, a Sunday, was also the month of our relationship. That's why we had planned to cook together in the evening and toast the sunset with a glass of cava on our roof terrace. Of course, Kate had no idea that I had something else planned that day. In the morning I ordered a bouquet of flowers, which were delivered to our home in time for brunch. In hindsight, Kate would say that she was very surprised by this, after all it wasn't a big day of celebration, just a Sunday. g.
We love going up to our rooftop terrace as often as possible for sunset as we have amazing views of the city and see the sun bathing Barcelona in the beautiful evening light. That's why we had this in mind that day. When big clouds rolled up in the afternoon, it wasn't clear if we would even see a sunset, which is why I got a little nervous. Finally, I knew the sunset moment would be perfect for a marriage proposal.
I had planned the proposal well in advance, although it got really exciting towards the end because the ring took a while to make. Thank God, with Helge's support and express delivery to Spain, I was able to hold the ring in my hands just in time the day before the planned engagement.
Sunset was approaching and a few minutes earlier the sky on the horizon suddenly cleared, the sun became visible and we were still able to go to the roof terrace to toast each other. So while we were watching the sunset, I took the opportunity to ask Kate the specific question, to which Kate of course answered yes. .
