Oh, Happy Day!

No one believes in love at first sight… until that special person comes along and steals your heart. 

We met at a summer barbecue on Capitol Hill hosted by mutual friends. He was smitten with me right away and became a generous patron at the museum where I worked. I thought he was cute, but opted to keep things professional. It wasn’t until a group outing evolved into a one-on-one date that I finally realized he was genuinely interested to take our friendship to the next level. We quickly became inseparable. After a trip to Texas to meet my family (where he asked my parents for their blessing), he surprised me with a trip to Puerto Rico. He said it was a getaway to reward ourselves after all the long hours we’d both put in at our jobs, but really it was to throw me off the matrimonial scent. Looking back I don’t know how I couldn’t see it coming… On November 23, exactly five months from that fateful summer day when we met, he proposed to me at sunset in a historic plaza in the city of Old San Juan. Less than five months later we said “I do.”

I’m sure some may have rolled their eyes at our quick engagement, even doubting we would last. Six years, two cities, and three beautiful boys later, he’s still my best friend.

Oh, Happy Day, indeed.
