I'm getting married!
My partner, Hayden, whisked me away on a holiday to Queenstown and got down on one knee.
On the sixth tee at Jack's Point golf course overlooking the lake at sunset is where I said: "Yes" to my now fiance. It was the most magical moment of my life. My very own fairytale.
I've still got butterflies and feel giddy every time I think back to the proposal.
But I've got to focus, because this bride-to-be is planning a wedding in a Covid world.
While we've only just begun the process, I suspect there's already a lot to factor in when planning your big day.
There's the all-important dress, the venue, the caterer, the bridal party, the guest list and more.
I think our Prime Minister is doing a great job in managing this pandemic nobody saw coming and I've got no qualms with yo-yoing between alert levels if our government thinks it's best for our safety.
But it does make planning a wedding that much more difficult and somewhat daunting.
My heart goes out to Auckland brides who had to push back their weddings when the city moved into alert level 3 - and the Bay of Plenty brides here in level 2.
If that had been me, I would have had my heart pumping.
But I don't want a looming lockdown to take the shine off planning our special day.
I don't want to have to cut back the guest list just because we "might" move up alert levels. A wedding is supposed to be about celebrating the future as Mr and Mrs with your closest friends and family.
I don't want to hold back on any decisions to do with the wedding for fear of the unknown.
Our businesses in the wedding industry have been here before - they are well equipped and know what to do.
My motto in life has always been: "Everything always works out in the end". Don't sweat the small stuff - there's no point worrying about something you can't control.
So my fiance and I are just going to go with the flow and see where this journey takes us.
All I know is that I can't wait to walk down the aisle and see the smile on his face - a smile I fell in love with.
Whatever challenges come our way as we plan our special day, we'll tackle them together.
Nothing can ruin this cloud-nine moment I am in right now - not even Covid-19.
