As with most trips, the time went be way too quickly. Lucas and I had most definitely fallen in love with Buzios and had even flirted with the idea of going real estate shopping to get an idea of how much a house would cost us in the future if we were to move there.
For our final meal, we chose to dine at the highly recommended French restaurant Cigalon. What a great decision we made, because not only was the food superb (so good that we each had our own three courses), but it also had to be the most romantic restaurant I have ever dined in — making it the perfect place to celebrate our unforgettable four days in Buzios. Unfortunately, I did not get any pictures of the restaurant, however to imagine the gorgeous setting, picture: a lovely candle-lit terrace that has been built next to the sea and overlooks the boats moored for the night. Of course, the waves crashing against the rocks in the distance and the lady singing lovely French ballads inside the restaurant only added to the mystique.
I believe that most of my readers already know what happened next, especially since I announced it several months ago, but on our walk back to the pousada Lucas asked me to marry him. I will not go into specifics as to how he did it, since it was an incredibly private moment. I will say though that even though we have dated for five years and have talked extensivly about marriage, I was still surprised, and this girl LOVES surprises!
For you ladies who are wondering what my ring looks like, below are some photos. It was not given to me that night, as my man knows I am very selective when it comes to jewelry. We did later pick it out online together though. Never one to follow tradition, I opted to forgo a diamond for a cotton candy amethyst and pink sapphires set in rose gold. The wedding is currently being planned to take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina for this coming May. Updates will definitely be ongoing
While I was terribly sad to be leaving Buzios, I was eager to return to Rio de Janeiro, this time with my fiancé!
