Well, I met David in 2004 when I was a sophomore and he was a senior at McNeil High School. We had web design class together taught by Mr. Wetzel. Lets just say that I was more of a quiet, keep to myself type of student, who got to class on time for the most part and did my work in class. David on the other hand-- Ha, he was definitely the social butterfly, talk to anyone and everyone, showed up to class when it was convenient for him type of guy. I distinctly remember him rolling his chair over to my computer during class one day and randomly striking up a conversation. Of course, me being the shy type I was, I could feel my cheeks getting hot and turning bright red. How embarrassing! Needless to say, I ended up going off campus with him and his buddy to get lunch (which was against the rules for us, sophomores!). From that day forth we continued to talk in class, and eventually began to spend time together outside of school. I had the biggest crush on him and he had no idea. We never ended up dating in high school, and he graduated May of 2005. I went to his graduation and that was the last we saw of each other for quite sometime. Fast forward now to 2008-- I received a message in my myspace inbox (yes, this was myspace times) from David, asking if I was still alive and if I still stayed at the same place. I cannot explain that feeling when I saw his name.. I hadn't heard from him in almost 3 years, and knew nothing about what he was up to. Yet, I was so curious. We messaged back and forth a few times and ended up meeting up about a week or so later in a Walgreens parking lot. We talked for hours, he showed me where he lived and we got caught up on what was going on in each others lives. It was after that we pretty much were with each other constantly when we weren't working. After two months of hanging out and spending time with one another, we FINALLY made our relationship OFFICIAL on June 12th, 2008! I was beyond ecstatic, what I had wanted for so long in high school was now becoming a reality. We've been going strong ever since that day. Don't get me wrong, we have had our fair share of arguments and disagreements, but they have all been so worth it. The past three years we have grown so much, not only as individuals, but as best friends, and lovers. I am such a strong believer in the saying, "If you love someone, let them go, if they come back, it was meant to be..." That was exactly how it happened for me. I am so blessed to have David in my life, as my soulmate and soon to be husband. He has helped me become the woman I am today. I have learned so much from him.. He is always so positive, even in the toughest situations. He puts the people he loves before himself, and always makes sure everyone is smiling. When he tells me that he supports me and has my back even in situations that he may not agree with, he means it. He has definitely shown me that Averi and I are his world and priority and that is such an amazing feeling. I feel that same way. I feel like I have everything I'll ever need in my life, with David and Averi. I am so excited to be able to spend forever with you, David. I can't wait for our next chapter in life. I love you so very much and am so thankful for all you do for Averi and I.
