Second Chance Love
Dedicated to Blair - my fiance
Submitted by Elaine
I never thought I would find someone who could fill me with so much romance and love but I have.
When Blair and I moved in together, it was a package deal; 2 kids from a previous marriage, a house, a truck and all the bills and expenses that go with it. We fit together like a glove with so many similiarities that sometimes its scary. Included in those similiarities is the time we spent in Hawaii. He, on a short visit while in the military and myself having lived and worked there for 4 years.
When Blair came to my work and got down on his knee and asked me to marry him on Valentine's Day 2005, I just knew that we had to make it official in Hawaii as that was the place that was the happiest of my life. No other place is more romantic and perfect.
Problem was that Blair's Mom had cancer and it was extremely fast-moving so it meant that we would have to have our wedding at home in Winnipeg Canada. We made the plans to have a backyard BBQ Pig Roast Luau with lots of flowers and shells. It was to take place in June 2005. Blair's mom died on March 8th, 2005. The wedding was postponed in order for the family to grieve and mourn her death.
Its now January 2006, and what a great thing it would be to get married in Hawaii in February 2007. I would love the opportunity to throw in a lei in memory of Betty (Blair's mom) and to celebrate our second chance love in paradise.
