She had been through a pretty rough relationship which had caused a lot of pain.
This girl decided that she would be single for awhile and enjoy life on her own with God and of course, her trusty sidekick, Shia, her husky pup.
One day she decided she would go hang out with her favorite cousin.
Off to the pool they went where they worked on their tans.
Next thing she knew a handsome guy and his friend walked into the pool.
This wasn't any guy, he worked with her cousin and had decided he wanted to meet Girl.
Cousin time turned into Girl, Cousin, Handsome Guy and Handsome Guy's friend time, and off they all went to dinner. Handsome Guy even tried to convince Girl and Cousin to hang out with them the rest of the evening, but Girl put her foot down. She told him she was in town to hang out with her cousin and they already had plans.
Even though she had said no, she made sure to ask her cousin about his friend, Handsome Guy.
A few weeks later, Girl's cousin called and asked her to come to a party that Handsome Guy would be in attendance. Cousin had put a stamp of approval on Handsome Guy to Girl and even later gave permission to Handsome Guy to pursue a relationship with his cousin.
That night was one of the best night's of Girl's life. She got a chance to talk to Handsome Guy for quite awhile and realized he was goofy just like her. The next day, Girl called her family and friends and told them that she knew it sounded crazy but she finally met her future husband.
Handsome Guy called Girl and asked her out on a lunch date. Their work schedules wouldn't allow for a dinner date for at least a week and they didn't want to wait that long so they decided their first date would have to be a lunch date.
That first date marked the first of MANY dates and little did they know it would be the last first date they would ever have.
It was perfect.
She was immediately comfortable with him and him with her.
As the weeks progressed she realized that He really was her perfect match.
They managed to make a long distance relationship work against all odds.
They lived an hour and half away from each other and both worked crazy work hours, but their relationship grew and flourished.
Many months later, Handsome Girl proposed to Girl and they were married November 29th, 2009
Off they went to Jamaica where they had the best time and enjoyed their first week of married life in a tropical paradise.
Girl couldn't have been happier.
She was so grateful that God had finally given her a man who would love her through everything.
He had given her a man who brings out the best in her and challenges her in every way.
These two lived happily ever.
They have made it through many many challenges in their relationship, but they are stronger than ever.
Happy Anniversary, to the love of my life!
Thank you for sweeping me off my feet all those years ago.
You have changed my world for the better in so many ways.
Every year just keeps getting better and better.
Can't wait for many more to come and our adventure to continue!
I love you!
