Our love story

Manny and I met in August 2010 at a mutual friends birthday party. A party that I almost missed had my friends not met me after being lost in Brooklyn New York for over an hour.

It was love at first sight for us. We spent the whole night glancing and smiling at each other. My friend gave him my number and a month later we went out on our first date.

Fast forward 3 years later when our luck made a turn for the worse. In April of 2013 I suffered a massive heart attack due to a blood clot disorder that I did not know about. Manny stood by my side and if it wasn't for him I don't think I would have pulled through. He is truly my rock and my best friend. I would be lost without him. Turning a new leaf over, we thought the worse was behind us. A couple of months later our beloved cat Fonzie was diagnosed with cancer and has since passed on. You can say its been a rough couple of years for us especially for me since I am heart broken over the loss of Fonzie.

Fourth of July weekend 2014, Manny took me away for a little R&R to the Poconos where he proposed to me. We had a fun filled weekend and on the last day we were there he let me sleep in while he got ready for the surprise. we went for our last dip in the pool and relaxed in the hot tub. While in the hot tub, we talked about the good and bad times and how our relationship is stronger by all that has happened. That was when Manny took out a beautiful ring and asked me to marry him. I was so happy and speechless. I cried and laughed at the same time while managing to say "Yes Ill be your wife." And so, our story begins...
