When we were matched through your site in March of this year, and after meeting, we both knew that this was the beginning of something amazing! We have spent the last 10 months getting to know one another and have fallen head over heels in love with each other. We have made many memories together including travel to another country and spending the summer volunteering together at a camp for children that are burn survivors. You see, Rebekah is a burn survivor after being the victim of a house fire about 6 years ago so this has a special place in her heart. It just so happens that I am a professional firefighter and also have a special place in my heart for survivors of burn injuries.
Some would say that it is a bit ironic that a firefighter and a burn survivor are together but we think that it was pure fate (with a little help from you). It still impresses us how eHarmony was able to put such a perfect match together. We both believe that we would have never found each other without your site and we thank God for it everyday.
We were engaged about 4 months ago at a little bed and breakfast romantic getaway that we were at. Although I did not yet have a ring to present Rebekah with, the time seemed right. I made a hole in a pink rose petal about the diameter of her finger and told her that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. SHE SAID YES!!! It looked amazing on her finger! Shortly thereafter, I did buy a beautiful engagement ring for her and we were married under a spectacular sunset on St. Petersburg beach, with the support of our friends and family, by the Fire Department Chaplain where I work. Our first Christmas together was also fantastic! Both our families came to our home and we hosted a prime rib dinner with all the trimmings as we both love to cook.
We are writing to you now as we get ready to ring in our first new year together. Neither of us had ever thought we would meet someone that we would want to spend the rest of our lives with, but through your service, we found one another.
Thank you again for all the happiness that you have brought into our lives and we will continue to update you on our success together.
