- Wedding: June 2011
I never shared my story on here and I think its pretty special and unique so I’m going to share it now–
I grew up in Chicago, Kingy is Australian. A few of my friends studied abroad there and some of the friends they met there came to visit them last December. I met them then. Kingy was friends with them and saw pictures on facebook and friended me. I usually don’t accept strangers EVER and definitely don’t chat with them but I did with him for some reason. We started talking online all the time. I would race home from work everyday and jump on my computer to talk to him. We started skyping and talking on the phone, sending each other gifts/notes/etc. He made plans to visit me in April because he was coming to the US to see his friend in Miss USA, which felt like f-cking torture to wait that long.
One day (March 2nd) I got home late from a Career Fair and was doing homework, I hadn’t heard from Kingy in 2 days and I was getting mad/nervous about it. I heard my doorbell ring and wasn’t expecting any guests. My mom answered the door and I heard “I’m S—-… the one from Australia”. I freaked the f out and didn’t know what to do. I stood at the top of my staircase literally frozen. HE FLEW 17 HOURS TO SURPRISE ME! I couldn’t say anything so I just kissed him. I knew I loved him immediately and 2 days later I told him “I have to tell you something but I think its too soon. I think you know what I’m talking about, can you say it first?” and he said “H—-, I fell in love with you when you were standing at the top of your stairs”
We had a LDR from there. During his visit in April, we decided I’d move to Australia in July since I had a Euro trip planned before that and couldn’t cancel. I was in Paris in June and hadn’t seen Kingy in 2 months. I had been living there for about a month and was at a park having a picnic. GUESS WHO SHOWS UP??? KINGYYYY!! He got down on one knee and proposed. Again, I was frozen so I just sat down on his lap and kissed him.
I’ve now been living in Australia with him for 10 months. We’re moving to Chicago in 3 weeks and getting married in 3 months. I love him so incredibly much!
**Sorry its long, I just haven’t told that story in a while and think its worth reading!
