This was definitely a chance encounter. There were so many opportunities prior where we could have met. Susanne almost decided not to join the New Years festivities, but then at the last minute chose to come to the Rose & Crown Pub in Bury Saint Edmunds. Simon was there with friends, and fortunately we both had mutual friends named Stuart and Kat. We call Kat the “fixer” now, because she brought us together. Simon approached Susanne at the Pub, and Susanne was instantly smitten. We talked the night away, and eventually ended the night with a New Years Kiss (unfortunately after midnight) haha. The rest is history ♥️ We obviously were shocked at how fast we fell in love, but love doesn’t have a timeline. We truly feel blessed and fortunate to have found one another.
