COLUMN : the 9 year engagement

comments 10


another year has come and gone once again. yesterday, it was nine years since me and david got engaged.

nine years since that giggly night in greece when i asked him to be my fiancé as a joke.
nine years since he shocked me by saying yes.

and just a week ago, we moved into our first own apartment here in berlin. we have nothing, just some clothes, an air mattress, and each other. after a decade together, that’s what we have to show for ourselves. but for some reason i find that romantic. exciting even.
because although it may mean that we are far from being settled, successful, and stable – it at the same time hints of a life more adventurous, free, and nomadic than i ever would have expected of myself.
and it never would have happened without david. he’s the sole reason that i dare to dream, move, try, and live a life less expected.


after nine years together, he still manages to keep being fresh to me. to be surprising and exciting. i don’t know how he does it.
ok so sometimes he is really predictable and boring too. often i know exactly what he will say before he opens his mouth. and i take him for granted like crazy. but that’s good too.

there’s a balance of excitement and familiarity.

when we’ll get married ?
who cares, i’m happy as i am.

love // jenny

  1. Happy anni, babes! ❤️ Details on the yum snack you are eating here though PLZ!

  2. ha, that’s the sweetest thing, asking “will you be my fiancé?”, I can only imagine.. I really love what you do, jenny, and like seeing you and david on yt together.
    whenever somebody is thinking about what they are not (yet), I counter-ask: how boring would life be, if that was all settled and done already? you can basically lay down and die. let’s enjoy the ride, with all the dead-ends and diversions :)

  3. Congratulations you guys! I love and get inspired by you as a couple. Have more fun and adventures together!
