It was Sasha’s first day of work as a barista at Crevier BMW and no one had said, “hello.” It was the end of the day, and she was taking out the trash when George noticed her from across the parking lot. He walked straight up to her and introduced himself. It was the beginning of a friendship that would last 8 years. A friendship of check ins and hellos, but a sincere one. It would take 8 years for George to ask her out and when he did, he said, “as friends.” They met up for sushi and drinks. The moment Sasha walked through the door and saw him sitting there, butterflies swarmed. George of course, felt the same way. What was supposed to be a quick catch up with a friend ended up being a date. They stayed until closing and ended the night with an immaculate kiss.
Sasha had prayed for many years for God to send her a man who would accept her and her son. Her prayers were answered in abundance. George not only accepted them, but cherished and protected them.
“George makes me feel like I am always the only person in a room. As if I am the most beautiful creature to walk this earth. He makes me feel safe and secure with just one kiss on my hand. He makes me laugh so hard that I snort- a talent seldom experienced. I am never the weirdo in the room anymore, but rather WE are the weird couple now! But that’s okay, I’ll happily take the crown of weird old couple in the room one day! I can see us strutting around with our very old and fat selves, laughing and smiling and celebrating our lives together, because that’s what I see when I look into his eyes…I see George by my side for the rest of my life.”
The day George proposed, he told Sasha, he was taking her out for dinner for date night at The Gulf Stream. Sasha didn’t noticed that they were going in the wrong direction, until they pulled up to the boating docks in Newport. George yelled, “Surprise!!!,” and Sasha said, “Oooookay??” She figured that they were going to watch the sunset on the beach, but instead George walked her down the dock that was covered in rose petals. The dock lead to a gondola with a candle lit dinner, wine, and desserts. While enjoying the water, the night, and a romantic song the gondolier sang, a glass bottle floated alongside them. George leaned over, grabbed it and pulled out a note. He gave it to Sasha to open. She read the words, “My Sasha, I love you with all my heart. Will you Marry me?” Sasha looked up and George was on one knee holding a beautiful ring. Of course, Sasha cried and said, “Yes!”
