It started on a cruise ship back in January of 2007. I (Drew) worked for a company called PTN, so this cruise was a PTN seminar. It was here, while cruising to the Bahamas that I first met her.
The first day of the seminar, I looked back and saw this amazingly beautiful woman behind me and off to the side. And I thought to myself... "Wow! Who is this person? And who is this guy sitting next to her? Maybe her boyfriend?" I have to admit, I was kinda feeling jealous even though I didn't know her.
So, I made a point to go look for her after the seminar. I looked all over the ship in search for her and thinking to myself... "wow, did she fall over-board or something?" For the life of me, I could not find her!
Finally I found her and we started hitting it off right away... even took our first photo together. Near the end of the cruise, I had a chance to meet her again and the amazing thing was, she invited me to go to LA with her and I said, "sure, I'd love to!" And from there began our first roadtrip vacation to...
... Las Vegas, Nevada! Here's a pic of us posing at the garden in the Wynn in Vegas (to the left). After staying and giving her a tour of LA, we took a roadtrip to Las Vegas and stayed there for a few days touring, eating, shopping and just having a great time.
I can definitely say that she was really fun to be with and we had a real blast! Of course, we've been on tons of other vacations together since then. Each time was a new, exciting and amazing journey that ultimately lead to....
... a wonderful, lasting relationship. Who would ever think that a relationship would develop from a simple invitation to LA? Had I not worked for a company called PTN and had she not went on that cruise on bequest of a friend, there would be no story to tell.
It's amazing how things work out.... how life works. I can't wait to see what our future holds, the new journeys that we'll take, the new adventures we experience, the welcome of the unknown, as we walk together hand in hand.... forever.
