Brandi Burris – The first day of Happiness
Couple’s Love Song: “Yours” by Russel Dickerson
I hope this reaches you well! I know you’ve probably read a thousand and thank you for taking the time to read ours.
For the past 10 years we had both had been searching for happiness, and the day I laid eyes on her I finally felt whole.
I will never forget the day I met her, it was a day just like any other day except today i would be attending one of my good friends baby shower, my friends and I arrived and brought gifts and greeted each other as we usually did, little did I know the person I had been searching for for so long was about to walk thru that door, I’ll never forget it, she walked in wearing a smile that light up the room, laughing, talking, saying hello and when her eyes finally met mine it just clicked, we smiled at each other like we had been in love for years, as the party went on we bantered and joked, I hadnt laughed like I did that day in years, we exchanged goodbyes with a smile and from the moment I walked out the door I knew I had to see her again, I knew at that moment my life was going to change. It was a couple months before we mustared up the courage to talk to each other we were both going thru extremely hard time and we finally confided in eachother, it was like we have known each other forever, I finally felt like life was beginning, I went on my very first date with her, she picked me up and we nervously drove around for hours trying to find something to do, I had never done this type of thing before so I wasn’t much help, finally we ended up painting pottery, it was the best tie I had Ever had and for the very first time we both felt whole,she dropped me off and said, ” well I hoped you like me enough because we have to go back and pick it up next week” I laughed as she walked me to the door the awkward silence came and she was polite she told me she had a great time and to have a great night as she turned I laughed and said “your not guna kiss me?” And before she could get her reply out we kissed, it was like my very first kiss all over again as my stomach filled with butterflies, days following Shelby came to my work with a dozen roses and did what any old fashioned girl would, asked me to be her girlfriend, I nervously repied “OK” haha because I couldn’t believe it was real, Shelby and I have been only growing since that day, happiness continues to fill our lives and for anyone who doesn’t believe in love at first sight you never know, Shelby asked me to marry her on a regular old night February 8 2017 I was laying on the couch watching TV like we usual do at night and as she walked down the stairs she kneeled by the couch and asked me to be her wife, and needless to say it was the best day of my life, it needed no bells and whistles just me her and the dog was our perfect time, knowing we will be together forever is a blessing, unfortunately a wedding can get expensive and neither of us come from a wealthy family, we would be so blessed to have any help at all planning and financing our wedding, it’s such a stressful time and to be honest being lesbians it’s especially scary, we just want everything to be beautiful and we have both experienced many hardships in our lives and it would be a blessing to receive this help, thank you again for reading and thank you for making this possible for a lucky bride.
