They decided to meet “halfway,” at the Anaheim Packing District, but before the date even started, Chris made Winona upset. He told Winona that he was stuck busy at work, and that he might be late or have to cancel.
Winona who was almost out the door, was not going to accept a cancellation. She was an ER Nurse who worked nights. This was her day off and she had even put on make up! The date was happening today or it was all over.
Chris was late, but he was there waiting outside. Winona walked closer to him. He was turned away. Her heart was pounding. He turned. She saw a tall and good looking guy. He saw a beautiful woman. Neither knew it then, but they had just met the person they were going to marry.
There was no awkwardness in that first date. Everything was smooth and easy. It ended with a hug. Their second date would bring them closer…. lunch, a movie, time at sports bar and their first kiss.
Winona soon realized that Chris was patient, caring and loving. She not only felt loved, but spoiled. When she was anxious, he was peace. He was strength when she felt weak. He was her mind reader and he was on her mind.
Chris was in love. Winona was beautiful, caring and adventurous. She appreciated him. She brought joy to his life and made him laugh with her contagious positivity. So for their 2nd anniversary, they decided to go to Hawaii. Every evening, they walked the beach and saw the sunset. What Winona did not know was that Chris was finding the perfect place and time to propose.
On their last night, they said in front of the lake. Chris told Winona that he had a present for her and to close her eyes. When she opened them, Chris was holding a gorgeous ring in his hand asking her to marry him. Winona said, “Of course!” The start of their journey to forever had started.
