You know those times when you travel to a different country for an event and you experience new things, see different cultures, and meet new people that completely change change your world?
Travel brings power and love back into your life and this is a story that proves being adventurous can lead to the unexpected -- including love.
Over a year ago, I went to Mexico with large group to celebrate @luishilson's birthday, and I met @anealjoshua one of his other friends there, who I immediately knew was one of a kind -- like a real life walking sitcom -- smart, funny, attractive, a little quirky, sometime forgetful, but always loving, and always making you laugh because of it all.
I was hooked and I wanted to binge watch the whole season, which just never ended. Over the year, we traveled together more, learned a lot about life and relationships, but most importantly developed a love for one another that only two people who are synced can.
Our first date was at the Art Gallery of Toronto, and between all the other things that happen in life, we hadn't been back in a long time, so I thought it was the perfect place to propose.
Being a little extra sometimes, I rented out the gallery so we had it all to ourselves, told him we were going to a clients event.
Up until the security guard guided us upstairs, he had no idea. But as one of those songs from the first trip in Mexico played, pictures of us lined the gallery walls, and the final rose lay at the end, he knew the moment had come.
I shared stories from our past, we laughed, he jumped in joy, and I got down on one knee and asked him to marry me. He happily said yes, we hugged, embraced, and cried -- and laughed even more.
But there was one more question -- would he accept the final rose? Borrowing the closing rose ceremony line from The Bachelor, I asked, and I got a second yes of the night. Thank you baby for an incredible year, with so many more experiences to come. I love you. You're like nothing else in this world, and I wouldn't have it any other way. #propsoal #equality #lgbt #toronto #inthe6ix #marriage #love
