I met Mike on a warm sunny afternoon - April 13th, 2014 for lunch at Marina Bay in Quincy, MA. We met online and this was our first date. He had long hair back then that would curl up under his hat. He wore giant aviator sunglasses, jeans, a bright blue t-shirt and white old navy flip flops. I remember those the most, because I hated them. But believe it or not, this goofy ball of love won me over. From there we were inseparable and our relationship quickly turned into something really special.
My favorite qualities about Mike is that he is always open to try new foods, travel to new places, and always finds ways to make me laugh. I love that in the short time of being together, we have been able to visit some amazing places, such as Paris, Punta Cana, and Mt. Washington -just to name a few.
Mike has the biggest heart and values having a strong and loving family - that is something I will forever cherish. He holds me back on the ground when I tend to float away. He continuously shows me how strong of a person he is through challenges we face. He always sees the best in people, when I sometimes have a harder time. And finally, he always has a smile on his face and is there for me when I need him most. I love Mike more than words can describe and can't wait to marry this handsome man by finally say "I do".
