Boboli, the magical garden in Florence

The well known renaissance garden in Florence, the pride of the city, the Boboli garden will forever have a very memorable place in my heart. Not because it's so extremely beautiful, it's actually quite runned down which is typical Italy but such a pity, but there was some true magic happening in there. It has this sort of cosiness, big, green and lushy areas, filled with small hide aways and spots for kisses and romance. Only for that reason will I take all of our children back to Florence in a couple of years, to let them hear our story.
Because yes, Dear readers, my lovely man, the passion of my life, the father of our children, surprised me like no one before, when he asked me to marry him with a stunning ring he designed almost by himself ... ♥

    1. Or my own design ....? Probably something that I will design myself or something with absolutely no label. But who knows, I might just end up in a stunning creation from a couture house! Blink

  31. i don´t know why but i always thought that you two already were husband and wife...???! i started reading your blog last summer so i´m kinda new ;) maybe it´s because i think you look like you belong together. sometimes i think my husband and i already met in a life before and maybe you two also have ;)

    so congratulations, what an amazing place for a proposal, italy, florence, awwwww ;) and the ring! ♡

  44. Congratulations to you and M! I'm so happy for you, M and your growing family:)

    I love renaissance gardens- so this just might be the best proposal ever. So much more chic than the usual proposal over a meal at a fancy hotel etc.

    Best wishes to you and your precious family.
