Proof Love is Found When You Least Expect It

valentines photo shoot

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Since it’s the one holiday that celebrates love and all the mushy-gushy stuff, I figured today was the perfect day to share the crazy story that is how I met my boyfriend, David! Seriously, it’s one for the books. You know how they say you’ll meet ‘the one’ when you least expect it, I can now attest to how true that can be. Love finds you when you aren’t looking for it.

About a month prior to our meeting, we had both been hired for an 8 month contract by a data analytics company in Virginia to be part of their 2015 data analytics team. The position required both of us and the rest of our team to spend a month in Fairfax training on a new data software. For David, it was a little leap of faith because he lived all the way down in Texas. For me, it was a short drive up the road from my home in Maryland. Nonetheless, we both agreed to take the job and a month later we started our training with our colleagues. It’s rather cliche, but never did I think for a minute that I’d meet the love of my life there.

I still remember the first time I saw David. He was tall, wearing cowboy boots, had better hair than me, and had a really sweet smile. He was one of those guys that made everyone feel comfortable together. It was pretty easy for him to notice me though, I was the only girl in the room! As the month went on, we got to know each other better, had many study sessions together, and shared many laughs . It wasn’t until the very last day of our month-long training that I realized how much I liked this handsome guy from Texas. And how much I’d miss him when he went back home.

Shortly after David drove back to San Antonio, we began texting a little here and there to just chat and keep up with one another. Those text messages got increasingly flirty and eventually, David asked if he could come see me back in Maryland. Being more interested in flying to Texas, somewhere I’d never been, I told him that I’d go and visit him. Thinking that I was just trying to put him off or avoid any such visit, he didn’t persist. A week later, I booked a ticket to San Antonio.

When I landed in the Austin airport, we shared our very first kiss! It was like a scene straight from a Humphrey Bogart movie! How romantic, right? That week we spent together I still consider one of the best in my life. On one of my last nights there, David asked me to be his girlfriend. I said yes, obviously. Soon after I went home, he had lunch with his sister where he confided in her that someday he was going to marry me. How romantic is that? Seriously, it still makes me swoon!

Over the next few months we flew back and forth seeing each other for weeks at a time. In January 2016, we both got permanent jobs in the same city. Our long distance relationship was finally over. This June will mark 2 years together! In that time we’ve dealt with the loss of jobs, the stress of moving around, the happiness of adopting a kitty cat, and learned to understand and adapt to each other’s mannerisms. On this Valentine’s Day, you’ll find this Dallas blogger counting her blessings in finding such a wonderful guy to share my life with. I sincerely adore my David.
