    Now I only call it a fairytale because everyone else does and it is a truly incredible story!!! Here it goes...

    In November 2008, my girlfriend and I took a girl's vaca to Cancun. I had just stopped seeing someone and she had been on and off (more off) with her guy. On our second day there, we caught the attention of a group of cute guys. We all hit it off immediately...but there was one particular guy that really had me intrerested. Later that night I found out that he had approached my girlfriend and asked about me...so apparantly he was interested in me too! Luckily for us, we had 5 days left and they had 6 days left on their vacation. For the rest of the time, we all hung out as a big group. We hung out at the beach, ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner, went on excursions, and partied all together. As the days went on it became clear to everyone that Anthony and I had a stronger connection with each other so our friends decided to give us alone time! We talked and got to know each other and it was just an amazing chemistry. Unfortunately as our vacations came to an end, we were both sad and unsure of any future since he lives in Conneticut and I was from Canada. Regardless we decided we would exchange numbers and emails so that we could try to keep in touch. The day I left he walked me to my bus and we had a very emotional goodbye. My girlfriend sensed my sadness and we started talking about it. I wasn't sure how to feel because I really didn't believe in long distance relationships...I didn't believe that they could really work, yet I couldn't shake the feeling that this was something different. So I decided I would keep an open mind and that if I was still thinking about him when I got home, I would call him. Needless to say thats exactly what happened!!! I called him and we talked and he confessed that he couldn't stop thinking about me! We decided that this was definately worth pursuing and two weeks later he flew to Toronto for his first visit! We managed to fly back and forth every two weeks after that.

    March 29, 2009. We were getting ready to go to the airport so I could catch my flight home. All of a sudden Anthony became very emotional and started on this very beautiful speech about how I am the love of his life...and then out of no where, he pulled the most beautiful ring out of his pocket and popped the question! It wasn't a grand gesture or anything extravagant...but it was so perfect! Of course I said yes!!! So of course being engaged changed everything...I decided we could no longer live apart...so July 17 I packed up and moved all my things to be with him! We've now been living together for a little over 2 months and it has been absolute bliss!!! Next up is our wedding...we've decided to go back to Cancun and get married exactly a year from the day we met! We can't wait!!!
