i can´t even begin to tell you how overwhelmed and happy i am!! yesterday, oct 12th 2010 my wonderful boyfriend of 5 years, Eivind Sæther asked me to marry him!! -and i said YES!!..(after looking around for a hidden camera;.. i thought i was a joke;).. i know it´s a cliché.. but it´s a cliché for a reason- i really DO feel like the happiest and luckiest girl in the world! and i can´t believe such an amazing guy want´s to spend the rest of his life with ME!!!???my ring is AWESOME and it has a name.. he´s called PARKLE.. because he sparkles (-he´s a fabulous gay man!!:)i really wish i could tell u how it all went down but i kinda wanna keep it to myself for a while.. ;) let´s just say that we were surrounded by music and our closest friends and that this is how oslo looked the eve of my engagement;

... and this is Parkle;).. (Mena needs a manicure;) love u all!! m.

that's so awesome Maria! I am so happy for you :)

I met Eivind once in Groningen back in 2006 (on your very first anniversary haha!) and I could tell, he's a very good guy. AND THOSE BLUE EYES! Kinda hard to miss them haha. Your ring is beautiful and I guess you're looking forward to trying on wedding dresses! I would hehe ;)

I wish you two all the luck in the world!

jeg syns du er en helt herlig jente, jeg ELSKER musikken din, og den sårbarheten den ofte inneholder. Har sett deg opptre også, du er så nydelig på scenen!!! jeg har brukt så mange timer på sette meg inn i tekster og til å synge med(A).

Du fortjener den beste mannen, etter alt du har vært gjennom, jeg ønsker deg lykke tilmed bryllup og alt!

så søt du er som måtte løpe inn på badet å ta bilde av ringen!!Gratulerer så mye!

Maria - I only just found out!! Incredible! Congratulations to the both of you.. he is a really lucky guy ;)

I feel like a friend has just told me she is engaged - I am genuinly happy for you! Enjoy these days of being engaged, I hear the rest can be all a bit manic and crazy - so take your time and enjoy it!!

Being engaged has a rather sexy ring to it doesn't it? Hahaha!
