“When I moved to DC in 2016, everyone said “Don’t go looking for love, ‘cause you won’t find it there.” I thought, “perfect,” because I was still healing from a painful end of an 8-year relationship and engagement, and love was the last thing I wanted at the time. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I told my friends that I wasn’t going to seek out companionship, and that if I met anyone, he’d have to find me doing me. And that’s exactly what happened.  I fell in love first with a local church in DC and later met my now fiance’ there.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I knew immediately that he was different.  Beyond his chivalry and charm, his approach was unlike what I’d ever experienced.  When he first decided to pursue me, he didn’t ask around to his boys for opinions, he went straight to our Pastor.  He expressed his interest to him first, knowing that he’d know where I was spiritually, and in a way, asked for his blessing and guidance. He wanted to be sure he handled me with care.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

It didn’t take long for me to realize he could be a great partner to me.  His actions matched his words and he showed fruits of being the man I’d always wanted. I knew he’d love me well because he was chasing after the greatest lover of all- God Himself. It was evident that he prioritized his relationship with Christ over his relationship with me, and that produced the confidence I now have in him. I know that I can follow him fearlessly because I am certain who leads him. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I read a quote once, that can sum up our love story: “Run full speed toward God, and if you look over and someone is keeping up with you, say hello.”

I was thinking I might still wake up today and realize yesterday was just a dream, but naw. I really was sent on a scavenger hunt all around DC, with clues from my some of my closest friends, that ended with a sweet proposal from my love in front of my family. Thank you Tommy, for making yesterday unforgettable, and for wanting to do this crazy life thing with me. You are proof that God sees and hears me. YES!!️

It’s bittersweet, saying see ya later to the girl who’s made my time in DC so fun and memorable. Her friendship is a reminder that life isn’t just black n white, and i really appreciate how my perspective has evolved since knowing her. As much as this sucks for me, I’m still SO happy and excited for your new chapter, @tammi_doll! I know you hate sappy stuff but I’ve saved the sappiest part for last...i love ya and will miss you tons!
