How We Met

We met 7 years ago at a local bar through mutual friends. I was with one of my girlfriends & we were all talking & I was introduced to James. I thought he was so cute! Then, my friend wanted to go to San Francisco to hang out. So we said our goodbyes & headed to SF. He then texts my friend “You Bring your beautiful friend & just leave”. I was blushing! LOL, We have been inseparable ever since! I went through a health scare at the end of 2015 with Breast Cancer & James held my hand every step of the way! Last year was one of the toughest years of my life & he stuck with me!

how they asked

So February of this past year he surprised me! He first went to my parent’s house & asked for their permission to marry me! They, of course, said yes & left my parents in tears of joy! After me, my daughter & James went to dinner, we came home and he was giving us presents. Then he told Giselle that he wanted a moment with me.

He gave me this card & told me it was special. It said “To My Forever Valentine, My Fiance” I started crying! Then looked at him & he was on one knee asking me to marry him! Of course, I said yes! He has made me the happiest I have ever been! I feel so fortunate to have someone that loves me so much! We are getting married next year on July 14, 2018!
