Well God blessed me and my boyfriend(cedric) to buy and close out on our house December 15,2011.....
I didn't expect it to happen at all. We have been the best of friends for a few years then we started dating after going to movies and dancing together as just good friends. I never imagined the proposal when it happened. I had just dealt with the loss of my older sister to breast cancer and my sweetie/best friend took me away on a weekend trip on a cruise to Baja Mexico.
On our first night on the cruise, we watched the moonlight together and he held me tight as I started to tear up from missing my sister that suffered for 8 horrible months. Believe me, I let it all out that evening on the ship. I really did. Not to mention I had just lost an aunt a year before that to the same thing!
After he let me get itout of my system, FH looked into my eyes and wiped my tears away then asked me. "I know that this is kind of an awkward moment, but I'm so in love with you and I feel your pain, Tarah. I'm going to ask you this question and I want you to know that I will always be there for you." He opened up the box and dropped to his knee. What else can I say? It was on like Donkey Kong! He's such a teddy bear!
thisis also the reason why we are using pink in our wedding. A way to remember my sister Teena and my aunt Elena forever and to share in our special day. Also I always wear the pink nail polish with the ribbon of breast cancer in some kind of way.
