I Said "Yes" Because...

Ever since I was a little girl, I daydreamed about the moment the love of my life would get on one knee to ask me to spend the rest of my life with him. However, as I got older, and especially when I got into my 30's, I began to have doubts that day would ever arrive. After experiencing my fair share of disappointments and unsuccessful relationships, I wondered if I was doomed to a life of singleness. I even had arrived to a point where I accepted that may be my reality and became content with being alone. Yet, one day, nearly 3 years ago, I met a man who came into my life, showed me that not all men are the same, and caused me to love again. All of the inner work I had done was not in vain. I finally met someone who saw past my physical appearance, scars and all, and loved the woman I truly am inside. After spending years healing from past hurts and pain, and working toward becoming a better version of myself, I attracted the type of man into my life that many women pray for. We started off as friends, took our time in getting to know one another, and built a strong and solid foundation for our future. On May 27, 2017, I got engaged to my best friend, my love, my confidant, and the man I prayed to God for. God does answer prayers; in Divine timing.

Below, in no particular order, are 33 reasons (for each month we've known each other) why I said "yes" to the man I love:

1) I said yes because he looked past my appearance and wanted to know me for who I was inside.
