Our Love Story










Alexa play " Miguel Sure Thing".....


Timothy and I met the first weekend of November in 2010. I went to a college party with one of best friends Bryana and her friends. When I normally go to parties, my anxiety is it at an all-time high. So many things are running through my head, like why is no one dancing with me? Am I too big or am I even as pretty as these girls in here. So, I’ll end up sitting down watching or just taking the floor by storm with my girls. Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE DANCING! But that night was totally different. I went to that party with the mindset that I’m just going to have fun regardless of anything and that’s what happened.  Bryana, her friends and I had the floor on lock.  OKURRTTT!  It was like we were the only girls in the room. I felt like the Rihanna song “Like I’m The Only Girl In The World” (sorry for the corny jokes) 

So I got a couple of dances in but then I saw HIM, Timothy! We danced together, I mean DANCED!  So after our dance, he asked for my number, but let him tell it that’s not how it happened. But it did!  I honestly thought nothing of it I gave him my number and continued dancing with my girls the rest of the night.


The next day around 1pm that afternoon I got a text from him and from that day we talked on the phone just about every day. Which lead up to our first date on November 20th,2010. Before our date, he met my mommy and she was super excited. I think she more excited than me honey.  He ended up getting lost on the way to my house but eventually found his way.  We went to a local light festival, then  ventured to Target (this is how I knew I really liked him), saw a movie and had dinner at Applebee’s. All in that one night, we had so much fun. We laughed and made jokes all night. I ended up eating all his food at dinner because I hated my food and till this day he won’t let that go.   After our date, he met my dad it was like a scene out of Godfather minus the mob but my dad was eating Italian food. That night I met his family and had dinner at his house.  Fast forward to November 24thwhen we officially started dating!
   
















December  23, 2018,
8 years later I didn’t know what this day would hold. But I was told his family was taking pictures and his mom needed her makeup done.  That Sunday I packed my makeup case and headed over to his house. Once I got to his house I asked so many questions, like where is your mom if I’m supposed to do her makeup?  He told me that we’re going to meet her Downtown on the Battery. Of course, I was confused but I went with it!  As were riding downtown his phone kept ringing and he seemed nervous. I kept asking questions and he looked at me like “ Girl please chill”…. I said, “Let me just hush child...”  I was nervous, impatient and just confused.  So he dropped me off at Loft to get a Christmas gift and then we were off to the “photoshoot”.  Once we got to the location no one was there, so you know I asked more questions!!! Then his brother showed up and I was like okay we’re really doing a photoshoot. But as time went on nobody else showed up. I texted one of my friends and said: “I think something BIG  is about to happen.” His mom called and said to meet them at the park under the gazebo, so we walked down to meet them. As we got closer to them I noticed that there wasn’t a photographer and everyone was just standing up the Gazebo. His brother started walking really slow behind us and Timothy did as well.  As we got closer, popped out two of his cousins holding up signs “ Lucy (my family nickname) will you marry me?” I looked back Timothy and his brother like “WHAT” I started crying like a baby.  I walked up the stairs and he got down on one knee. The looks I his eyes meant everything to me.   He gave me two rings because my engagement had to be resized!








OFCOURSE I SAID YES!




Looking back on everything we both have been grown so much over the years. We’ve grown spiritually, emotionally and mentally.  I know many people don’t see themselves waiting on someone for 8 years but we both know what we wanted and we wanted to make sure we were ready.  This is our love story and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with this man! Stay tuned for what’s to come!
