It was a fairly balmy evening for December and it was a milestone birthday for Rosa, she was celebrating the big 3-0! All week she had been debating whether to celebrate or dig herself into a hole. As fate would have it, she decided to celebrate with her nearest and dearest! A small group gathered in downtown New York at Madame X. After initial introductions and a few shots, Larry played photographer of the night. He thought she was "tiny and cute"; she thought his eyes were nice and her first impression was that he was "mad cool."
It wasn't until after a heart-to-heart conversation at Silver Spurs at 4 in the morning that we realized there was more to each other than meets the eye; and needless to say, the spark was ignited. To her ears, he was saying all the rights things and to his ears, she was everything he'd been looking for in someone. Little did either of us know that divine intervention was playing its hand from that night forward. We had so much in common, and really hit it off, to say the least. When it was time to part ways that night (err...morning), we felt as if we had known each other for longer than we had. There was something very timeless about our first encounter. We gave each other a quick kiss on the cheek, with him promising to call the following day, and we left saying we would find each other on MySpace. As promised, he was a man of his word and he called the very next afternoon and we spent about 5 hours talking that night. After endless conversations on the phone, we became inseparable. I don't think either of us had planned to meet the love of our life that night, but fate played its hand well and God helped us along. Larry likes to modestly say that he was her gift that night and she cannot help but concur that they were each other's gift from God. The rest, as they say, is history...
After that fateful night, things just took off for us very quickly. Here we are, a year and a half later, planning what promises to be the best day of both our lives. We now live together and we are proud to say that we are still the best of friends, and hope to carry that friendship with us through the rest of our lives.
