Lynda and Joshua

How We Met

If someone would of told me 10years ago back in high school, where I first met Joshua, that he would be the man I fell in love with, I would of given them a crazy look lol. Little did I know that God had other plans! God found a way to make our paths cross again.

In June 2014, Joshua and I went for ice cream to catch up and ended up being there for about 7hrs just talking.

Ever since then we barely went a day without talking. Joshua asked me out on August 10th, 2014.

How He Asked

On September 19th, 2015 my original thought was that my sister, my brother, and I would be taking photos together at Duke Gardens for Christmas cards.

We arrive at Duke gardens and I see a someone that looks like my friend Chanel. As we get closer I am very confused to see my friend holding up the sign “patience”….My sister lets us exchange hellos and quickly hurried me away…

Then we get to the red bridge of Duke gardens and see Asia (Chanel’s husband and Joshua’s best friend) holding the sign “faith”, by then I was beyond confused!

Before I knew it, I saw Joshua’s parents holding the sign “friendship”. All of a sudden I had an

idea of what was going on. As I hugged his mom I could not help but to shed tears….
As we turned the corner I completely lost it when I saw my parents holding the sign “love”….I tried to get myself together as I walked up the staircase where the the love of my life was holding the sign “forever”. He had a member of the church sing and play the guitar and the after, he proposed to me.
