Something magical happened in Paris…

After almost seven years together my soul mate asked me to spend the rest of my life with him as we looked over the sparkling Parisian rooftops from the top of the Pompidou Centre. It was the most special moment I’ve ever shared with someone and a memory I will cherish forever. I’m so grateful to have been blessed with the opportunity to navigate life’s adventures, both good and bad, hand in hand with the love of my life.
