Vanessa and Andres
How we met: We met in 2004 at a friend’s gathering and became great friends. On September 7th, 2007 we decided to take our friendship and our love for each other to the next level and who knew the journey we were about to take! <3
How he asked: After 7 years of wonderful our wonderful love and 6 years of longing to be together again since we were going long distance, my love will be finally together soon. We have been there for each other for everything from the wonderful times and events in our lives and through the tough times as well. On November 27th, 2014 when I arrived to visit him in Toronto from the red eye flight, he decided to propose in the most wonderful and intimate way by slipping the ring on my finger as I was falling asleep from the long flight, but the words he engraved were the best and most wonderful part of the whole thing, he wrote “My life, My Love, My All”. It feels wonderful to have found a person who has become the other half of me and to know that I am to him as well. I hope you share this love story because it truly is, a lot of people don’t believe in long distance relationships, but our story shows that the distance and any other obstacles can never get in the way of a couple’s strong love and passion for each other as we have. I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together! There is a Christina Perri song that I love and the lyrics always stuck to me and she sings “Don’t count the miles, count the I love you’s”!
