I used to find it funny when young girls imagine and dream about their wedding day, well I used to do the same thing back when I still believe in fairy tales lol!. But on a serious note, when I reached mid 20’s, I don’t imagine it as often as I did when I was a young girl. Why? I don’t know.. maybe when you grow older and you think more about your future ( I’m talking about being mature here!!heheh ) being married is the last on your priority list. ( I think..)
I don’t wanna be cheessyy but come’on I’m still a girl.. you know.. every once in a while you get bored and can’t help but think about meeting your prince charming ( blame it to Disney! hahahaa!! ) but anyway, I met this guy because of my supervisor, well I’ve met him before back when I was a kid because were neighbors, but we don’t talk..see?? What a small world!! Who would have thought that he is my supervisor’s cousin! So we were formally introduced and to be honest I hated his guts! He started texting and calling me and it really annoys me!! so.. one night he came into our house and he brought a dog with him. and well… there goes my weakness.. I’m a dog lover and I immediately fell in love with his dog. ( who wouldn’t?? he was sooo cute! ) I’d like to say that we became really good friends and I started to like him because he is also a dog lover. So, It started there….
He courted me for 8 months but we were far from each other the whole time because he is a seafarer. Don’t get me wrong, he didn’t stand a chance even if he is a dog lover. ( I know it’s so confusing.. haha ) I hated his guts more so that I heard a lot of bad rumors about him. He came home after 7 months and that’s when the real courtship happened.
Indeed, you can’t judge the book by its cover, yes! I hated him but for many occasions he has proven himself worthy of my time and attention , he has been really nice to me, caring. loving and the list goes on..and on… even if he was just nothing to me ( back then) he opened my eyes to many things, I’ve come to realize how nice it is to smile genuinely and how amazing it is to love unconditionally.. it was my first time and so I told myself.. why not give a try.. I said “yes”
(here comes the kilig part lol! ) I still can remember how I feel the first time we kissed (ooops this made me smile hahahaah!) it was something I can’t explain hahaha!! but it’s a very good feeling, you can start to think of all the positive adjectives and insert it here to describe it. That’s what I felt. It was very unexpected and everything happened really fast and I mean to say really FAST. On our 5th month I got pregnant and so we decided to get married. Surprisingly, based on my character ( I always try to balance things before I decide) I didn’t think twice, it was magical I really wanted to marry him.No questions, no- holds- barred, no what if’s and no buts. It’s amazing that for a short time many good things happened to me and its all because of him. We decided to have our wedding on January 11, 2014 it was raining hard ( there was actually a typhoon) but it didn’t stop us to walk down the aisle and exchanged our vows. It wasn’t grand but it was surely memorable.
Maybe that night I didn’t just fell in love with the dog but I also fell in love with the owner. In the mean time, we are still at our 3rd month after we got married and so far, I have no regrets ( hopefully not in the future as well ) Perhaps, fairy tales does not only teach us to believe in magic and happy endings, it also teaches us to open up and explore, be not afraid to try new things, get to know people with different backgrounds, believe in destiny and trust in the power of love ( its so lame.. I know) but it’s true. Trust me..I’ve been so hard on myself but I am happy now. Very HAPPY!.. fairy tales do come true 🙂
