So have we met?
Quite many people already know our story, so I do the short version.
I was born on the biggest island of Estonia - Saaremaa. And as on the countryside is bad bus traffic I hitchhiked a lot.
It was the summer of 2008 and I worked with my mom and dad. They are building houses, but are more like line workers. As you can imagine, in place like that are more men than women. So in summer worked there also some boys, who were quite same old than I. So I had little thing with one guy. On the 2 August I went to the city to buy him a birthday present. I bought to him a teddy bear with pink T-shirt. The guy once had pink socks, so I made jokes about it. That is the reason why I wanted to buy something pink...

I had about two hours to wait the bus, so I decided to hitchhike. One car picked me up and I got to the half way with him/her. And I was back waiting some cars.
Then one car drove by me and then reversed. In car were 4 guys, and the driver seemed to be the only sober one (Raiko was the driver). They all were from mainland, so we talked and joked about words and letters we say differently on Saaremaa. When we were drove little bit I asked that maybe they could drove me at home - as I lived in the middle of forest. They agreed.
When we got at my home, we made some pictures and talked (and they missed a lot of ferries). So finally they started moving again. Raiko told me his name, so I added him and his friend in orkut as friends. And that is how we started to write to each other.
I started to hitchhike to mainland almost every weekend and two years after we met I moved to his home.
I had first schoolday on 29th August - it was only the ceremony (songs, speeches). I was getting myself ready for that at home and suddenly I noticed two envelopes for me (yellow and red). And inside those lovely colorful envelopes were two beautiful cards.
Thank you Larry and Maja!
And today I got one more card:
Thank you Raimond!
I actually didn`t know that Raiko put my name aslo into birthday card exchange. We have sent cards, but I always assumed that Raiko just put my name also there. So the cards were really sweet surprise for me!
Last time I actually invited guests to my birthday was when I was 12 (I think). So I decided this year to invite few people. As my real birthday was on Monday we celebrated little earlier - on Friday. I was really happy that they came. And also I got very beautiful flowers (yellows of course), gift card and umbrella. I just love this umbrella - it is with purple, pink and red flowers and white lace.
Monday - the big day!
I got a lot of hugs, handshakes, text messages, phone calls...
When my schoolday was over Raiko called me and asked when I will come home. I told that I am at home about hour. He said something like: so soon, ok. Then I realized that he wants to do something for me.
As Monday was really warm and sunny I decided that ok then, I will go to the beach to took some photos. I wanted to go to take photos already many days ago (as flash is broken I can take photos only with sunny weather). So I came home and packed things I needed: umbrella, some clothes, make up, chair, tripod, camera, dream catcher, some jewelery, phone, book, some school papers... By the time I finished packing Raiko had called me about 3 times and asked when I go.
So I went to the beach. Some photos to you also:
My clothes were wet, so I had quite cold already and when I called to Raiko, he said that maybe I could give him little more time.
When time was ok to go home I noticed that I had lost car keys! GREAT, JUST GREAT! I was so mad at myself... So I looked them about 40 minutes when I finally found them - lying on the sand (and I was walked by that place already 3 times).
When I came home there were candles everywhere, music, Raiko wearing a suit, flowers, cake, bath...
It was soooo beautiful:
I don`t write how he actually proposed, want to keep that for us, but it was like in movie (only Raiko was nervous, what is funny ).
Sadly the ring was big for me, so I let to make it smaller and got it back today.
Ring is soooo gorgeous. I am glad that he picked ring with with jewels (not red or green or some other color). I am just so happy!
I LOVE HIM!
