Inside: OUR LOVE STORY THE BIG DAY MEET THE WEDDING PARTY
OUR LOVE STORY My friend Norah took some of us to New York for the 4th of July. She had mentioned that her college friend from California was going to be there, too. The first night we went to a bar to meet up with the group, and I laid eyes on Justin. Oh boy, was he cute! He was very charismatic in introducing himself, and both of us had dumb smiles right off the bat. I texted Norah to ask if he was single. Turns out he was texting her about me at the same time! We had a good time at the bar, then all of us went back to their place for some late night games. He got to see my ultra competitive side, and luckily he adored it. I asked him if he wanted to go for a walk, and we immediately started sharing stories about ourselves and having an amazing conversation. The next day I freaked out. I liked this guy, but he lived across the country! I told myself to snap out of it, and enjoy the weekend. So, (embarrassingly) I ignored him the next two days. He was so confused! Luckily I realized what was in front of me and made sure we ended on a good note. I made him wait a little before we went on a first date, but after only about 2 months of dating, I knew he was the guy for me.
