Now booking for 2019 & 2020!
On the late night of February 24, 2017, the world completely stopped, and my heart skipped a beat.That’s the night I first laid my eyes on Monique, and I will never in a million years forget that feeling.Mutual friends brought us both to the same event, and I could never be more thankful for the way that God brought us together that day. Butterflies were going crazy in my stomach as I saw her walk, and believe me when I say that she had the absolute most beautiful smile in the universe, and still does to this day. I met her that night, and from that very moment, I knew I wanted nothing more than a chance to get to know her better.
As the months progressed I began to talk to her more and more, all in hope of getting to know her better and get close to her. It was kind of hard because Monique is a very devoted person to whatever she hasher mind set to. She was always beyond busy with school, volunteering, playing Mariachi gigs, and studying/doing homework. Not only was I just some chubby guy trying to get the most beautiful woman’s attention, but I had to somehow do it without diverting her from her main priority and on her path to become a dentist. But where there is a will, there is a way!
One night in May, we were hanging out with my brother and a couple of mutual friends and the time finally came! She was free from school for the year, and she wanted to go out! Nothing can stop us, right?! Wrong! I tried to convince her to stay out longer so we can keep talking, but nothing was working. But even after the night ended, I knew I couldn’t give up! I had to keep talking to her and getting to know her; all at the same time of not fully exposing my feelings to her. I was afraid of expressing my feelings too early and being friend-zoned.
Fast forward two months, one intoxicated night, I drunk call Monique and somehow-someway tell her that I’m going to marry her. Oops! I’m exposed. I let everything out and she knew that I had feelings for her. I messed up! Or so I thought... As the months progressed, we began to get closer and finally started to get closer. Days felt like weeks, and weeks felt like forever! Within a couple of months, we knew we were bound to be together. We started dating December 4th, 2017, but even during a long awaited happy moment, we both knew tough times were yet to come.
I deployed just 5 months later as I left home May 14, 2018 to begin training for the upcoming deployment the following month. I knew deep down inside that there was no one else I would rather have by my side to support me through deployment and everything else life had to throw my way. During a four day break, I just knew that I didn’t ever want to be with anyone else besides Monique, so during her birthday party, I popped the question to her, and everyone else’s, surprise. She said “Yeah.”... not YES, but yeah. Through the toughest days of deployments, mentally adjusting to whatever life had to throw at both of us, we still made it through our biggest challenge to this day. Knowing that we got through this, we know that we still have to get through her accomplishing dental school, every and any task that life throws our way. We know that together as a team, and with the support of our loved ones, we can accomplish anything! We plan on saying our “I Do’s” in Cancun, Mexico on May 22nd, 2020, and would love to have you by our sides as we take a leap into our live’s next chapter!
