We stumbled upon one another in a virtual sea of strangers. Kareem asked for my number to stay connected and I said yes. I had yet to understand the altering force of a simple yes. I didn’t know that receiving a text from him would trigger some deep and unseen fault line in my life that would completely change my understanding of love. Kareem and I have decided to tie the knot on our tenth year anniversary and spend the day celebrating love with our beautiful families and friends.
