Once we moved into our careers, mine being a teacher and his being a fireman, we decided that it was time for us to make the next step. On my birthday 10 years after our encounter at his birthday party, I had a little birthday party of my own. I invited everyone to help me celebrate. While I was talking to a few friends, Bryan came from out of no where with this look in his eye that I had never seen before. Probably a second later, he was on his knees asking me to be his wife. The feeling I felt in that moment was indiscribable. Although we were surrounded by tons of people, in that moment I didn't hear anyone or see anyone, but him.
It was on this day, that he made me the most happiest woman on Earth. It seemed as if we came full circle. It was on his birthday, that he made me feel like I could laugh with him forever. It was on my birthday, that I made him feel that he was ready for for ever.
We met through my friend and previous college roommate. When I 1st laid eyes on him at her New Years party in 2006, I thought he was charasmatic. We didn't speak much other than a few words over a card game that I was playing, but he was not a part of. He was trying to tell me how to play, but little did he know I was a champion in Spades! During our 2nd encounter, it was his birthday party. This was a birthday party/welcome home celebration. He had just came home from the Navy. We caught each other's eye a few times, but nothing serious. Toward the end of the nght, he came over to our table and began a conversation. He had me laughing so hard, I literally was crying!! We began to talk on the phone and eventually we began a relationship.
Bryan and I have had our ups and downs, but I will say that everytime I needed him, he was always there. We went through the struggles together. We supported each other through our life's trials and unforseen events that tested us as individuals and as couple. We both had daughters the same age from previous relationships. During our union, we had a son, which seemed to make our family complete!
I am an outgoing person. My loves, outside my soon to be wife and my children is sports. My favorite teams are the Bears and the Bulls. Hey I'm a die hard Chicago fan. My favorite pass time is relaxing at home with my family, watching a movie, and eating snacks. I like taking my family on outings like the park, beach, drive-in and hotels with indoor water parks. Their smiles get me through the day.
A couple years ago, my career goal and dream came true. I became a Chicago Fire Fighter. I love my job. I have a chance to save lives and make people feel safe with just my presence. The hours are not so bad either. It leaves me time to travel and hang out with my family.
I am a very easy going, loving, determined person. I love spending time with my family, traveling, and a good laugh. I am a firm believer in laughter being the healer of all things bad. I grew up on the South Side of Chicago, sharing my home with my mom, dad, and younder brother. I was a part of a family that believed in values, being educated and surrounding yourself with positivity. I believe in energy, both positive and negitive. That's why I try my best to give off positive energy so that I may receive it.
My favorite pass time is hanging with family, laughing, talking, and sharing stories.
I am a teacher, which a career that I love. I get the opportunity to see the light bulb of knowledge being soaked into a child's brain everyday. I also get a chance to mentor and make a difference in their lives.
