From Miss to Mrs

BEING SNGLE ISN’T SO BAD…BUT

A couple of years ago, I became very content with being a single woman.  I had a wonderful career, a beautiful home, great friends and I was determined to live my life to the fullest.  You see, love had failed me many many times and I had found that my father’s love was without flaw, and his covering provided me with the security of knowing that he would always provide for me.   However, I would be lying if I said that I did not desire a male companion to navigate through this life with.  After long days at work, I would often think to myself, how nice it would be to have someone to talk to, have dinner with, and to discuss the day’s politics.

HOW I MET MY HUSBAND

I know many are skeptical of online dating and rightfully so in todays world.  However, D and I are Christian Mingle success stories.  Yes, the “I want to fall in love with you”  Christian Mingle. We met online over 3 years ago, and what turn out first to be a friendship, blossomed into a wonderful relationship. I could write an entire blog post on the ups and downs…do’s and don’ts of online dating, but I’m afraid it wouldn’t be much help to you.  I say this because D was the “first” and “last” guy I met online, LOL! 

Honestly, when I first met my husband, I wasn’t looking to date or fall in love, I was looking for a friendship. Someone I could talk to and hang out with from time to time.  Flash forward to today and I can say that I got much more than a friend. He’s my biggest fan and cheerleader, the cause of my worst headaches, my confidant, best advice giver, and most of all he’s the one who loves me through it all.  Just let me say that I am quite a hand full.  

FROM MISS TO MRS

On February 12th, 2016 at the ripe age of 38, I married “The One.”  The one I survived all heartaches for.  The one I prayed for.  The one my father prepared me for.  It was simple, it was intimate and quick.  It was special.  What I love most about our love story, it that we took our time.  We did’t allow people or time to rush our process.  We got rid of the outside noise and influences and we focused on us. We built a foundation first and the rest came later so naturally.

LET’S CELEBRATE!

Our Save the Date

 

On September 10th, 2016 D and  I will celebrate our marriage with our families and closest friends in Florida.  Although planning a reception from the Middle East has been somewhat challenging; we’re both excited to fly home and share our adventures with you and to celebrate with you all.

Love is a Journey…and it’s my pleasure to take this journey with you!!
