Children’s sandbox

In fact, neither of us has any idea how we met. We don’t know how old we were or where our first meeting took place. One thing we are sure of – we have known each other forever. Let’s assume that since the proverbial sandpit. But exactly when, nobody knows – not even our parents. For those who don’t know us that well, I think it’s important to explain why the word „parents” is used in the first post of this blog, which after all is about our wedding and reception. Well, we were introduced to each other by them – our parents, who to each other were nothing more than acquaintances from some common group of friends.

Chances are good that we first saw each other when we could barely speak, and the charming „Gugugaga!” was the equivalent of „Nice to meet you!” The first conscious, longer meeting we can remember was in 1999 and our trip together to a winter camp in Szczyrk. I was stressed. There were so many new things. There was Karol. There was Marcin. Lots of new „aunties” and „uncles”, because how else can you talk to nice, well-known adults with whom you see every day for a week? Only „auntie” and „uncle”. Simple. Coming back to Szczyrk, I think I experienced this trip much more than Karol. Karol knew Marcin better, they were the same age and, most importantly, it was already their second (or maybe even third!) ski season! My guesses turned out to be right. The 7 year old boys really delivered.

Marcin was definitely in the lead when it came to skiing skills. Karol came second and I came third. Marcin’s pace was so good that he could be a downhill companion even for adults! I spent the first two days of the winter holiday learning, and from day three I left the conveyor belt behind and took up the next skiing challenge, which was the T-bar. There were many times when Karol waited for me, and sometimes he made two runs for my one, and as a result we ended up on the same ski lift without knowing what was going on.

How our engagement looked like

Our engagement took a special form, because it took place in a place close to my heart – Karol asked the magic question in Dubai. I associate Dubai very well – I like the United Arab Emirates, I like this particular emirate that is Dubai. I think that it is a very interesting cultural mix and probably the only place on earth where the splendour and wealth is not so obvious. 

I’ve also competed in Dubai and raced against the best, I’ve also had the opportunity to be there several times, and this trip of ours last year – because we got engaged on 5 June 2021 – was the first trip to Dubai for Charles. We planned our time from A to Z, practically every day was filled with different attractions. One of these attractions, which we basically decided together during dinner at the Burj Khalifa, was a balloon flight. And it was there that Karol decided to ask me THIS question!

It was really very surprising, especially since we were stressed because the day before the balloon flight…. we were watching movies, how those balloons land badly, how they crash, the baskets fall over… And we were stressed, but also curious about the fate of our balloon. Fortunately, during the landing, everything went safely and according to plan.? Karol had a very beautifully prepared balloon.

Karol had a beautiful speech prepared, which was incredibly heartwarming, but I didn’t hear this speech on the moment and day of the proposal, but only a day later – when the emotions had subsided. Because it is such a strong emotional charge, however, that all Karol was able to get out of his mouth was „I love you. Will you become my wife?”

This magical moment took place at 5:30am, at sunrise, over the desert in Dubai. It was truly something over-the-top, but I think nothing says it more beautifully than capturing that moment in itself. So please take a look at our engagement – the video is below:


Of course I cried and Charles cried too, it was really emotional. After the engagement, during our stay, we also did our engagement photo shoot. Using the Flytographer portal we found a very nice photographer and arranged a photo shoot in the old part of Dubai. The photos came out beautifully and we have a nice souvenir from that day, which will be able to be seen during the wedding in albums prepared by us.
