3 years ago, Eddie was mine and my husbands best friend , who hadn't found his match, and honestly it was driving me crazy to see him so sad and feeling lonely. He just kept meeting the wrong women. I decided to step in and begin a search for him for someone I would approve (because I only want the best for my friends). I made a public facebook post in search of a lucky lady (without putting any details about him nor his photo). Although he did let me take a awesome photo of him to share with any lucky ladies that were approved for phase 1 of the search.
At that time, Valerie was my daughter's ballet teacher. Surprisingly , Valerie messaged me saying she was interested in knowing more , and that she was ready to get back into the dating scene. I told her a little bit about him and sent her his photo. Her reply was... " I think I know him". Well long story short, he dated her roommate, and they secretly had a crush on each other. Valerie and Eddie decided to give it a shot and have their first official date.
The longer they dated , the more and more infatuated they were with each other, and overtime the love they had could be spotted from miles away. Eddie asked me to help him prepare the perfect proposal. He wanted a gazebo with lights to create a romantic setting. He set a date when he planned to propose, well it just so happened that it was when we had that massive night snow storm in Tuscaloosa. That didn't stop him! Nor me! I just had to drive 5 mph on the interstate.
