Savor every moment that you have with those you love.
Bradley and I met through my little brother of all people! I had just broken up with this guy (he was a little "too nice") and sort of half-jokingly asked my little brother and his friends if they knew of any guys my age who were single, cute, and nice. His friend Hilary said, "How about Brad?" That immediately got my attention because I've never met a bad-looking Brad!! They knew Bradley because his dad and Andrew's (one of my brother's best friends) dad knew each other real well, so Andrew and Bradley have known each other for as long as they can remember).
So our first date was actually a group thing: my little brother, Andrew and Hilary (who are a couple), and Bradley and I. We saw "American Wedding" and I remember going home that night and saying, "That is the guy I'm going to marry." We celebrate our 2 year anniversary next month on Aug. 3rd and an engagement is *hopefully* going to happen before year's end!
PS- Allie, your story is truly something unique and dramatic! Enjoy your special love . Glad things worked out for you two in the end, against all odds!
