This Is Ess Engagement Story 12

Photography by none other than Victor Peace!

The past few days have been the most exciting and unbelievably beautiful moments of my life, spent somewhere between cloud nine and heaven. I got engaged!! Engaged. My goodness, what a beautiful word. I honestly haven’t wrapped my head around it just yet.

But before I do, allow me to share the story of my engagement.

This Is Ess Engagement Story 1

The journey begun at about 3:30AM, 1st May, 2015.

Lonina, my boyfriend at the time, had fed me some false story about how he’d wanted to treat me to a weekend away. He’d also said that he’d wanted the trip to double up as a cool photo op for my blog so he’d invited Victor on the trip. Believe me when I say I bought his lies hook line and sinker.

I must confess though, I’m not exactly the easiest to surprise especially when it involves my work and he had to endure a few outbursts from me since I’d needed more information than he was willing to share. Haha! Poor guy.

So there I was, with 6-7 outfits, just as many pairs of shoes, and 3 bags in tow. Needless to say I got several strange looks as we were staying for only one night but can you blame me? Bloggers will be bloggers.

By 4:10AM we’d already picked Victor and we were well on our way. I was awake for about 56 seconds and slept for over an hour and a half. Typical Sharon behaviour.

This Is Ess Engagement Story 2

I woke up just in time to catch a glimpse of Mt. Kenya, which I couldn’t stop trying to capture since it’s usually hard to spot given all the cloud cover. I remember gushing about the picture and trying to edit it for Instagram and neither Lonina nor Victor seemed that bothered. Never really thought much of it though.

After a few wrong turns, we wound up at the airstrip in Nanyuki just before 7AM. At this point I was freaking out after realising we’d be going on a helicopter ride! I distinctly remember asking “Why is everyone acting like being in a helicopter is normal?” It was my first time ever and didn’t think the morning could get any better.

Victor, who’d go between taking pictures and filming the entire thing (I thought he was filming for my YouTube channel), didn’t seem that moved and I just brushed it off as him trying to be professional. Now, I realise everyone was probably a little tense about the hour that was to follow!

This Is Ess Engagement Story 3

Lonina had mentioned that I’d need to be warm and I’d carried a few light sweaters and scarves, not realizing that when he said carry something warm he’d actually meant dress up like we’d be going to the mountains. Literally.

He ended up giving me his extra jacket just so I don’t turn into an ice sculpture. Smart move, my friend.

It soon became clear that we’d be flying over Mt. Kenya and I couldn’t stop squealing! It honestly was so magical; like one of those moments you feel so connected to God upon seeing his great work in ways that you never imagined. I kept looking over at Victor to make sure he was capturing every moment and every so often I’d squeeze Lonina’s hand and mouth I love you.

After a few minutes of circling the peak and exploring parts of Mt. Kenya that I never knew existed, let alone dreamed of seeing, we landed by Lake Michaelson.

I remember spotting an animal making a quick dash into a cave right before we landed and I quickly joked that even if it was actually a cheetah, it still wouldn’t stop me from exploring this place.

It was absolute perfection.

Hamish, our witty and hilarious pilot, offered to make us coffee which we could have with some cupcakes and croissants that Lonina had carried with him. Seemed like a good idea to everyone considering it was 11 degrees and we were freezing our butts off at this point.

A few pictures and sips of coffee later, I wandered off to the shore of the lake, just to soak it all in and live in the moment. Lonina soon joined me and started to play one of our favourite songs on his iPod.

Quite frankly, I was so distracted by the scenery that I’m not sure I really paid attention to his cute little speech. It was only until I saw him reach into his pocket that I thought there might be more to this than I realised.

Seconds later he was down on one knee, asking if I would marry him…

…and I said yes!

This Is Ess Engagement Story 11

You know how in the movies, it seems to be like a beautiful, emotional yet composed 30second affair? Well that was really not the case here, haha! I’ve been asked whether I could see it coming and my answer is not at all! Every time I show the video of the actual proposal and they see my face and reaction, there’s no doubt that I didn’t see it coming.

Honestly, it’s more hilarious than sweet to watch!

We spent a few more minutes soaking it all in and he endured the 10,000 questions I had for him. Hamish, who was hanging around the chopper the whole time, came over to congratulate us saying that’s the first time he’d ever witnessed that! Well, me too Hamish. Me too.

This Is Ess Engagement Story 13

We soon packed up and flew to Lake Alice – another spectacular body of water with the most beautiful blue hue within Mount Kenya.

I kept looking at my finger and seeing this piece of jewellery and freak out. Even as I type this I keep glancing at my finger and get knots in my stomach!

After about 15 minutes at the Lake, we flew back to the airstrip but not before Hamish had spotted the cabin that Prince William had proposed to Kate. I mean, all I’m saying is, Dear Royals, maybe we should have dinner sometime and talk about our little special moment on the mountain?

This Is Ess Engagement Story 18

Landing just made everything so real! I found a bunch of videos from some of my best friends that must have been sent while my phone was still out of network and immediately attempted to call my family with Lonina. I got hold of mum but surprisingly dad’s phone was off and Jeff hang up on me – making me think he was in class. What are the chances?

We eventually got hold of his family too and shared the good news – everyone was so happy!

This Is Ess Engagement Story 17

After a quick breakfast at the cutest little restaurant in Nanyuki, we wound up at Fairmont Mt. Kenya Safari Club and checked into our room. We’d been engaged for several hours now and it was all starting to seem a little more real.

A few minutes later, we go down to receive what Lonina described as The Package and I find my family seated right there!!! His family joined too and my love, Mondy, later appeared and I couldn’t believe it! Some of my favourite people in the world right there to celebrate one of the most exciting days of my life.

Pure perfection.

The day was filled with laughter, kisses, love and it was all crowned by the most beautiful, vivid rainbow at about 5pm.

To everyone who made this magical day possible, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Love and love.

  • Miky Oloo

    Me nitapropose to wife kwa nyumba. Na ni yeye alipika. Madem kama Sharon wanafanya machali wawe single. Munaitisha vitu as if unaomba God……ladies engagement should be simple si madoido mob. The world is not a fairy tale. Hakuna living happily ever after. Uko in kenya

    • Felix

      Miky, she didn’t ask for anything. The guy took his own initiative to express how much he values her. You on the other hand you want to place ,monetary value on other people’s love while at the same time you want your wife-to-be to be the one to show you how much she values you. Ati akupikie uki propose. Frankly, I don’t see your happily ever after if you keep up such a selfish attitude

      • Ivasha CyRoyal

        Well said Felix.

  • Warda Jebet

    Absolutely beautiful!! Congratulation to both of you :-)

  • Janice

    Best engagement ever, its such an amazing story felt teary as i was reading. Yeah will give u tips for planning a wedding as i did mine last year, the journey is hectic but worth it once u see the pics later on after the wedding day

  • Jane Wairimu

    So this is my first comment EVER on your blog, I think, though I’m an avid reader. First things first congratulations on your engagement. I was reading this great news yesterday & I couldn’t stop jumping in joy, well not literally but I was so excited for you. It felt like it was my special moment yet it was yours. I believe that’s the connection that you so effortlessly put across between yourself & your readers/fans. You’re such an inspiration to me as I hope to one day be a blogger as soon as I figure out what I want to put out there. Enough of that, I really do wish you & Lonina blessings galore as you plan your wedding & in your nuptials ahead. God bless you Sharon a.k.a Ess. Btw, I cant wait for wedding updates. If I come across anything that might seem to your liking, ill definitely suggest it.
