(actually the conversation went something like this:
A: D (youth minister), what's the policy about two lifeguards dating? Is that allowed?
D: Only if it's not Lora!
clearly he knew before we did...)
my text that morning read: "do you like italian?"
do I like Italian. Please. Carbs are my best friend.
That evening, he showed up at my door bearing a single white rose and looking even more handsome that usual. We went to Maggiano's downtown, and were given a wonderful booth where we were able to sit side by side and enjoy our meal...we did dinner and came back to my house where we more than likely watched an episode of "Friends" and called it a night...after all it WAS a Thursday night and he had to be at work the next morning!
Tonight we will return to Maggiano's.
It's hard to believe it's been a year.
And yet in so many ways I feel like he's been with me all my life.
I'm blessed beyond measure to experience my journey with this amazing man by my side.
Silly but Serious
and best of all, I know that his love for God will always outweigh his feelings for me
I couldn't have dreamed of a better last 12 months.
Thank you, Anthony, for all you mean to me.
And thank you, God...for giving us each other. How could I have ever doubted that You were the best author of my love story? More than I could have ever asked or imagined...
