How We Met Part 1

*Insert Sappy but long Love Story Here*

Scrolling through Buzzfeed yesterday I can across an article on how faith played a role in older couples relationships.  And I couldn’t help but think of my own relationship and how crazy it is. So here is how I believe that if it’s meant to be then it will be.

My boyfriend and I have been together for about a year and a half officially, but our story started years ago. Hope you’re able to keep up because it can get confusing.

His aunt and my aunt went to the same high-school together here in NY and they were cordial with each other. Hillcrest HS to be exact and graduated in 97′. His same aunt then went to Queens College with a different aunt of mine and they were friends. But like many friendships they lost touch.

Fast forward to 2006 when my aunts, uncles and grandparents (basically everyone on my mothers side of the family) decided to pick up and move to Orlando Florida. His aunt also moved to Orlando Florida but a few years after my family did.  But get this, his aunt actually bought a house in the same neighborhood as my uncle. They ran into each other in the supermarket and since then a deeper friendship was born.

His aunt used to come to all our family gatherings. Her kids and my cousins did everything together. She was so close to us at one point I thought she was family.

Mind you I still lived in NY but traveled to Florida a lot. So I only saw her occasionally. But when I did see her she always use to say how I reminded her of her nephew and I should meet him, but I always brushed it off.

Then the summer of 2013 happened…

Okay I did not realize how long this post was going to be so I had to break it into parts not entirely sure how many parts I am going to break them into just yet but….
