James and I met in June 2010 through an online dating site. Long chat conversations turned into me making a later afternoon trip to Charlotte, NC from Columbia, SC the same day we started talking just to meet a wonderful person.

We met at Zapata’s Mexican Restaurant followed by a movie for our first date. Who would have known that we would have hit it off so well!! We continued to talk and I made numerous trips to Charlotte to see James. I fell in love with him so quickly, but you know when it’s right.

We have been through a lot in our relationship and so many changes have taken place….all for the better. James officially proposed to me on December 25, 2010. I was so surprised and so thankful that I had found such a wonderful man. We married on April 21, 2012 in my mother-in-law’s backyard. It was a beautiful wedding!!!

After so many disappointments in my life, I have finally found the man I am meant to be with. I am so blessed with a beautiful relationship and wonderful in-laws. Life is great and I thank God each and every day for such a blessing.
