She and I have been friends since high school. We lost touch for a while but thanks to the internet and social media, we were reconnected. I first met him only a few years ago. They have been together for a long time. I asked them how they met. Of course, I already know their story. She and I are friends, right? But I wanted to hear it from both of them.
“We met at work”, he started. “The first time I saw her, I said to myself, who is this hot momma?!“, he said proudly while gently rubbing her baby bump. Then she started to tell me about their first conversation. Something about birthday candles and five dollars left in his wallet. She said he looked nervous at that time and almost out of words. He was smiling and nodding – a sign of confirmation. She was laughing and teasing him of how shy he was. They recounted how they became friends. Then their friendship grew into love. And the rest was history.
I was a witness to the union of this couple as they finally got married. And in any day now, they will welcome the arrival of their little bundle of joy, Isabella. Mira and Juan, thank you for trusting me and allowing me to capture and preserve this wonderful phase of your life. My very best wishes! I can’t wait to meet darling Isabella.
