The ultimate love story. We actually met 8 and 1/2 years ago and we’ve been dating for 8 years. He lives just a few houses away from mine and I never knew he existed. Believe it or not, we met on the internet when his cousin, who was also my friend, introduced us. Unfortunately, when we started talking, I was on the verge of entering another relationship. When I started that relationship, my fiance refused to speak to me. And in the 3 days the other relationship lasted ( yes 3 days!), I realised how much I missed him. I knew that he offered so much more than the ’3 day wonder’ :). So we just talked for about 6 months and then decided to give it a try. Its been 8 years since! I think I knew that he was the one for me was when I saw that unconditional love from him when my dad was diagnosed with stomach cancer. Every single day he made those trips to chemo and radiation and back. When my dad was too ill to move, I saw my fiance sleep on a sofa half his size just in case my dad needed to be moved in the night. I saw him ask my father for his blessings to marry me the night before he passed. I also saw him stick by me when my father passed, refusing to be moved just to make sure that I was going to be ok. I still see him here today, standing by me no matter what. And on December 21st, I’ll see him at the end of the aisle, waiting on me to marry him in my gorgeous Lazaro gown! I hope you enjoyed my love story and even though its bittersweet for me, I know that I have someone who my father approves of and that means the world to me. I have someone who can almost fill those shoes my dad left…
