One of my favorite Love Stories :)

In honor of Valentines Day, I thought I'd share one of my very favorite love stories...

It started off with a California boy taking a trip with his buddies to Hawaii to celebrate his 21st birthday. One rainy afternoon the guys found their way to a little bar in the International Marketplace to listen to some live music. Here's where it starts to get good... Walks in a tall, blond, gorgeous girl. She was there in Waikiki on "holiday" with her brother, escaping the snow back home in Calgary, Canada. Well, California boy started making bets that this pretty thing was there with either: A-her new husband, B-her fiancee, or C-her boyfriend...

It just so happened that Canadian girl noticed this fine looking group of boys. Her & her brother ended up moving closer to the band so that, as she claims, they could "here the music better". Of course, the boys were conveniently close to where the band was playing. One thing lead to another and California boy ended up talking to Canadian girl. California boy asked as soon as he could slip it in, "So, who are you here with?" And in reply Canadian girl let him know she was definitely there on holiday with her BROTHER! (she emphasized the brother part) Once California boy got this bit of good news there was no turning back. After seeing each other a couple more times in Hawaii, these two love birds kept in touch - and this was pre-facebook, pre-email, pre-texting, and pre-cellphones...

After a lot of letters, phone calls, and a few long distance visits they decided to make it official. Canadian girl left all her family behind and made the big move to the USA. A wedding & a few years later a bouncing baby girl came along, who is of course, yours truly! :)

It just goes to show you that no matter where you are & what the circumstances are, God will bring that perfect person into your life. Even if it's while you're visiting a tiny island drinking Mai-Tais on a rainy day in paradise.

Mom & Dad thank you for giving my such a beautiful example of true love. Your dedication & self sacrifice to each other means so much to me! I love you! :)

A little photo I snagged of them while they were all dressed up for a Christmas party. Looking sharp Mom & Dad!
