Web and I met on June 8, 2012. I run a home based business doing event styling and I was hired to do an event in Cleveland, OH. I live in Upstate New York.
Web was a front desk agent at the hotel I stayed at. He was the first face I saw after driving 6+ hours. I looked like a hot mess. Hair was up in a make shift bun on top of my head, very little make up, leggings, and flip flops.
When I walked through the door he took a double take look at me. I noticed him as well, and how handsome he was, but as tired as I was, that was my only thought. He checked me in, keeping it professional. I was hungry so he recommended some good restaurants that deliver. I kindly said thank you and went to my room.
The following day I spent most of the morning setting up my event. Once I got back to the hotel I set my hair with my rollers and remembered I needed to go to the ATM in the lobby. So now I look like an even hotter mess than I did the day before. Big purple rollers in my hair, NO make up, and too big tshirt and sweat pants. While at the ATM I could hear Web's voice at the front desk. The food I ordered the night before was REALLY good so I wanted to thank him for the recommendation. All the while forgetting I looked like a nightmare.
We had small talk like how I was enjoying Cleveland, and about where I was from in NY etc. He out of nowhere asks me if I was seeing anyone. I said no. He then asked me if I was open to seeing someone. And without hesitation I said yes. We exchanged numbers and have never gone a day without talking since.
Things moved really, really fast. After a month of nightly 3+ hours phone calls, he came to visit for a week (this is July). He came again for a couple days in August to see me off for my vacation to Jamaica, relocated to New York in September, and proposed Christmas. We knew from the first visit/week we spent together we were going to get married. So we started kind of planning, but I didn't dive in until it was official.
Funny fact about all this -I had a tarot card reading 4 months before we met and she predicted EVERYTHING about Web and I. How we would meet, his personality, his line of work, and also the fact that things would move very fast.
Wedding date is set for September 27th, 2013
