We met through his childhood friend over 30 years ago! He just came home from serving his country and our mutual friend said, "Leen, let's roll and holla at my home boy"...I didn't think much of it so we went to pick him up. I liked him as soon as I met him. Our friendship was instant! It just grew and grew...bonding over music, movies, basketball, and more! We were friends for a year and then our feelings deepened. Life happened and took us on different paths through the years, but somehow we always seem to reconnect. Then in 2021, we reconnected through family loss, forgave, and choose to REBUILD our relationship and FELL IN LOVE and began ANEW.
Whew...a day was full of joy and deep reflection! I was at a wedding and he was at a funeral on that day. At the wedding, the bouquet fell in my hands! For some reason, I couldn't wait to get home to see him. We met back home and shared our day while still dressed up! He hugged me tight and as I sat down, he knelt down and BING...there was a RING! And he then says, "I just can't, I can't , I just can't let another day go by without you knowing how I feel about you...Will you marry me?"...In total awe and surprise, I said, YES, YES, YES and sealed it with a KISS! We're so excited to celebrate this next chapter in our lives with you. See ya in Clearwater Beach! We are going to celebrate, drink, eat, party and DANCE!
