Daryl & Mike’s Love Story in Daryl’s lovely words :
Mike and I go, we met several years ago, at the time he was my boss at American Eagle. It wasn’t until several years later that a mutual friend linked us back and up and and our relationship ignited. He was a fire fighter, I a nursing student who would be going away to join the Army after graduation. We knew what we were faced with, but that didn’t stop our love for each other. After graduation I was stationed in Washington DC at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, as Mike was still in Arizona both as a civilian fire fighter and in the Arizona Air Guard while taking care of my beautiful four-year-old future stepdaughter, Bella. The distance gives us a love like we could have never imagined. We continue to to write our love story, even with 2,293 miles in-between.
I always say that everything happens for a reason and running this contest was meant to be so I could meet these two beautiful people and their adorable daughter Bella. I know that you two love each other unconditionally… pictures don’t lie. Thank you so much for including me on your journey and I can’t wait for the big day xoxo.
