“Nothing would be the same if you didn’t exist”
I can’t recall exact dates but I know it was sometime in 1993? Maybe the beginning of the year or summer time? When I met my husband. We were at a night club called Venezia. It’s was a water front restaurant/bar/Brazilian night club at the time. Today I don’t think they have a club there anymore. It’s funny I remember the exact time I met him I was sitting at the table no one was on the dance floor but his brother, after he got there I guess the party started LOL. Everyone started to dance, his sister, me and everyone else that was there. I remember him asking me to dance more than a few times I was very interested but he had a Girlfriend that night so yeah a little embarrassed but I was so young and I really didn’t care much about anything. I danced with him a song that I will never forget that song got stuck in my head for ever till this day I still know it that one specific song he asked me to dance
It’s My Life by Dr. Alban
It’s going to be 20 years and I still remember that day, the way we danced, the way he looked LOL now can I call that “Love” or Obsession? hahhaha Poor guy he had so much more coming if he only knew maybe he would have never danced with me that night. But I like to believe it was
God’s Plan to put us together other wise we wouldn’t have lasted 20 years
After that night my dream guy went home, I was the happiest girl in the world imagine a 14yrs old girl just met the most handsome 17yrs old in a club that not only looked good, he drove a nice car, he smelled good, he showed interest in me
The following Sunday I was the 1st one to show up at the club again with BIG hopes to see him again and there he was, looking just as good as he did the sunday before. My heart would beat so fast. This day It was even more memorable to me because he didn’t have a girlfriend (anymore) so we got to dance all night hang out and …
Yes he got the 1st kiss. I even remember what we were wearing that night LOL and I remember this because I was so in LOVE with him I saved my Jeans shirt ( he happened to be wearing one too same night ) I wouldn’t let no one wash it because of his smell that was on it. Of course I didn’t tell anyone but I would come home from school everyday and smell that shirt and remember that kiss he gave me that sunday night. To me it was such a big deal. I bet he doesn’t even remember LOL. It doesn’t matter what matters is that LOVE prevailed and you LOVED, LOVE, and Hope will Still LOVE me Forever more
After all this I was so in love with him every where he was I wanted to be, anywhere I saw him I wanted to be with him and around him. He came to my house to do what?? till this day I don’t know :0 I never thought to ask him this question because after he came to my house he called me and said to me he wasn’t interested in dating anyone I was so Heart Broken, I don’t think anyone was ever so hurt like I was. I cried so much and I couldn’t deal with my feelings and like all teens with a bad history I turned even more to the substance abuse I had a few friends that I trusted with my life my best friend Linda ( may she R.I.P ) and I would tell her everything she knew everything about me just like I knew all about her, we would sit all night drinking and talking about our problems and we would cry ourself to sleep. I remember one night calling the radio station and requesting a song LOL when that song played we couldn’t even open our eyes because we cried so much hahahaha. Today it sounds funny but back then it was painful.
After a few days passed I went to a gathering the catholic church had and there he was the love of my life walked in with his new girl friend I was so upset and so sad and angry at the same time, not even because he had a girlfriend because I had a boyfriend too but because he lied I was devastated, and the girls that knew about it made fun of me all day because of him being with this other girl, I of course played like I didn’t care when I got home I cried a river hahahha.
Summer came around and I met up with Chris again by this time we had moved next to his house, and once again he had no girlfriend lol. So it was finally my time to shine, later on I heard he told everyone because I bothered him so much he decided to date me LOL. Well I was told if you Love someone you fight for them as hard as it take right? That’s what I did he was Single, I was single so I fought for him and I won him
From that Moment on My Life Changed from living like a crazy person to living my dream. Like every girl has a Love dream.
We started dating I guess Summer 1994 ( wow Time goes by too fast )
We had a great relationship, we fell in love I could tell he loved me and I loved him with all my heart. At the time we didn’t belong to any church so we partied a little too much, but we knew we loved each other, we decided to get engaged on December 25, 1994 and we did just that we got engaged and all of a sudden my lovely fiancé decides he wants to end it all here we go again I couldn’t even deal with how hurt I was but I never gave up on him, to me it was like we never broke up just took a break LOL. During this break we both went to church and became a new person, we accepted Jesus as our savior and became a Christian best decision ever made.
Our Son Joshua was born a precious time in our life, We Decided to get married June 13, 1998.
From this point on we never looked back.
Our Love Story was mended together Till Death do us part
For all the people that didn’t believe in us in our love all I have to say is
” Mathew 19:4 and 26″
Go get a Bible and read it if you don’t know what it says :)
Now with this amazing love story and strong marriage in the Lord you would think we had no battles right? ” Wrong” We had, Have and will have many. But with God’s Help and grace we will fight EACH and EVERY one of them till the end. I will NOT let my family fall apart no matter what it takes, how hard I have to fight.
Right after marriage we had 2 more Boys Isaque & Gabriel as you all know :)
The Joy of our lives.
There is no words to describe the LOVE we feel for our children, it’s something unexplainable.
Little boys come in all shapes and sizes
Shy and adventurous, full of surprises
With misshapen halos and mischievous grins
Small dirty faces, and sweet, sticky chins.
They’ll keep you so busy and yet all the while
Nothing can brighten the world like their smile.
And no greater treasure has brought home more joy
Than a curious, active and lovable boys!
This year my husband and I celebrate our 20th Valentines together can you imagine it’s like another life, we’ve been together for so long, that today we can just look at each other and know that there’s something wrong, If we are sad, happy, angry. LOL. My love for him has expanded to a point that if anything ever happened I don’t think I would survive without him. I don’t know what Life is like with out him beside me. We’ve been together since I was 14. It’s always been me and him, never just me and never just him. All I can say and hope is that he would feel the same. That to me is the most romantic, Beautiful, Love of all. The one we share side by side everyday. I still get butterflies every time you kiss me, when you leave me I miss you dearly, and when you forget to kiss me Goodnight, or in the morning it’s like a part of me is missing because I’m so used to you doing it every night and morning.
I know I have many flaws, but I want you to know what I feel for you is real and I guaranty no one will ever replace how I feel… Eu Te Amo!!!
Thank you for being the Best Father, Friend, Husband, Lover a person could ever ask for. I will continue to pray for us and believe in God we have many more years to celebrate together … <3 and NO ONE will EVER TAKE THAT FROM ME
AND THIS IS WHAT MAKES US A FAMILY <3 HAPPY VALENTINES EVERYONE

No words could ever tell you,
No action could express
The way I feel about you,
With you, my life is blessed.You’re the light in my tunnel.
You are my pot of gold.
You are the strength that gets me through
When despair has taken hold.You’re my once in a lifetime.
You make my life complete.
You are my blue ribbon
In the shadow of defeat.There’s nothing I could ever say,
And nothing I could do
To let you know just how much
Love is in my heart for you.
