Okay, okay, I know this feature is one day late. BUT, I think this post was well worth the wait! Today, Mary was kind enough to share a little bit of her love story with us! I LOVE IT!
“I have always believed in fairy tales… and Santa… and the Easter Bunny! I like movies with happy endings and I believed, in the end, good always triumphs. However, there were many times in my life when it seemed like my dreams were just dreams and hope was all that kept me going. But if hope is all you have… it’s enough. At age 57, it is glorious to be in a relationship that is full of joy, wonder, and contentment. At age 57, it is also glorious to be a blushing bride and be told every day, ‘Mary, you look radiant! You must be in love and you must be truly loved.’
Here are a few answers to some of my most frequently asked questions:
How did you meet Rick? Believe it or not, I’m one of those internet brides! We met on LDSsingles.com. I am a believer that the internet can introduce couples who would have never had an opportunity to cross each other’s paths. I dated for a year on the singles sites before meeting Rick, and it certainly made me sure of the right man when I found him!!!
Are you catering your own wedding? Absolutely! I have the most professional, dedicated, and detailed team of any catering company in the country. All I had to do was share the vision with them and they are doing the rest. All of those details will be coming in the next few weeks as we share the menus and design for all three days of celebration. Oh, I’m all goosebumps!
How did you know you were ready to make this step? They say you should know someone in every season before marrying them. I didn’t do that the first time, so I decided to take this advise the second time. I met Rick on July 4, 2010. I played with him all summer, shared long talks with him all fall, skied with him all winter, and said, ‘Yes!’ to him in the spring. We will be married on July 1, 2011; one year after meeting that fateful day. To be honest, from the first night when we spent 7 hours ‘just talking’, I knew Rick and I had been connected long before this life. He is my soul mate, my love, my best friend. We may not be perfect….but we are perfect for each other.
Until next time… Hugs from Mary”
