Hello! Happy Birthday Month, Amber Kell.
I’m here to share my memories of a special birthday with you all. For me it would be my 29th birthday. A strange number, right? It was the day my then-boyfriend now-husband proposed to me. He’d booked a couple of nights in the Rotunda in Birmingham (not the most exciting getaway I’d thought at the time as it’s close to home). At night we sat down with his laptop and he’d made me this little video of pictures of us across the ten years we’d been together set to Taylor Swift’s Love Story. At the lyric ‘Marry me, Juliet’ the music cut, and he paused the video and proposed, giving me a little scroll inviting me to a day out in the Jewellery Quarter to go pick out a ring. A bit late for spoiler warnings but I said yes!
I feel lucky to have such a wonderful birthday memory.
