how we met...
october 10, 2006
it was my 28th birthday. i sat at a table with a friend. he was our
server. something about his eyes, his smile...i asked someone he worked
with about him...who was he, what was his name? little did we know then that we would be growing old
may 15, 2008
he said we were staying with his cousin, jillian during my first trip
to new york and that we had to meet her in brooklyn..said she was on a
shoot. so, with luggage in tow, we walked the streets of brooklyn
waiting for her "shoot" to be finished. he took me to the most
incredible little park lined with beautiful trees, and old
lanterns..reminded me of an old romance movie i had once seen...the
view was spectacular..new york city across a body of water. he wanted
to take my picture, but i refused. we had been traveling all day and i
did not feel very picturesque. i felt guilty. he was so excited to have
me in new york with him..i turned to give in, but before i could speak,
he was on one knee, tiny black box in hand and he said with the
brightest smile, "well, if you won't take a picture for me, will you
marry me?" i couldn't believe it! my jaw dropped and couldn't make a
sound...i could not believe that here i was, dirty, tired, crabby...and
this wonderful man still wanted to spend the rest of his life with me!
his hand was shaking...he asked for an answer! i couldn't stop kissing
his face...of course i would marry him..what girl in her right mind
wondering when & where we are tying the knot?
keep up with the planning by reading my blog.
