So every other Friday &/or Saturday night my sister, Jen, and her boyfriend, Joe, hit the club for some salsa dancing. Now, salsa is not my thing at all, but every now and then I let them drag me out of my house and take me along. I have to say that watching them dance and seeing how much fun they're having is truly contagious and fills me with joy & laughter. It's not so fun, however, having to turn down every person who comes up to me asking me to dance & say, "sorry! I don't dance", I apologize guys! Nor, having to convince people that I'm not my sister we just look a lot alike! But what I do love is spending time with my big sis when she's doing what she loves most & I wouldn't trade it for the world!
One particular night a year ago I really didn't feel like going out but sure enough Jen & Joe showed up at my door and wouldn't take no for an answer. She had this funny feeling that the Entertainment Coordinator, Rodrigo, would fall in love with me when he met me. I had absolutely no intention of meeting anyone especially someone in the salsa scene as it's just not my bag! But I did go with an open mind...I remember thinking to myself that just because it's salsa doesn't mean that their isn't someone amazing who could be there. After that thought- I let it go & when she introduced me to her friend at 1st I didn't even remember what she had said about him. I shook his hand, said hello with my big smile and walked away. Now, at this time I was getting hit on by every Tom, Dick & Harry and had heard just about every line a person could drop. But Rodrigo said to my sister that I seemed really "nice" & that was one I hadn't heard before. Most men 1st comment about the way or look and it gets worse from there. The fact that he said I seemed nice intrigued me so I sat down and had a conversation with the devastatingly handsome Spaniard...
A year later, all I can say is, LOVE is BLISS! Never have I been loved by someone so whole heartedly and never have I loved someone so utterly & completely! And on Monday...he will be the only man I will ever love for the rest of my life! :) Who knew? Having the open mind and open heart...I feel I truly manifested this man. My sister would tell you "if it wasn't for me they wouldn't know one another" and that's true also! So that's why I say "Thank you Jen & Joe" for introducing me to the greatest LOVE of my LIFE and for all of the amazing support you've given us! The love, friendship & support I have from my big sisters is never ending & everyday I'm amazed by it!
