Our Love Story

First time we met...

The first time we met, we were in front of the furnaces at my old plant, so you can say it was a heated encounter. It was December 2018, and I was getting a tour of my new chemical plant after moving to Longview from Houston

We became freinds...

He was walking by and decided to say hello. All I remember is that he had a nice smile and was friendly. Throughout the next several months, we became good friends while he invited me to many events that helped me make new friends.

We started dating...

During one of our trips to New Orleans, we shared an Uber, and I fell asleep on his shoulder. From that moment on, I had butterflies. A few months later, we started dating.

The Proposal...

We arrived at the hotel, and he checked us in, which was weird, but having just woken up from my nap, I wasn’t noticing the weirdness of everything. I was a little confused that we were at the hotel instead of the restaurant. I started catching on to the fact that something was going on when we walked to the hotel room and he was walking fast in front of me; he usually walks behind me because I’m the fast walker. When he opened the hotel room door, I saw the proposal set, and the violin player began to play "Love Nwantinti" and I was so shocked and excited.

“When I met Alfonso I just remember how well he looked after Nwando making sure she wouldn’t get lost and guiding her through crowded streets in New Orleans. Once I knew she was in good hands I was so happy for my friend. ”
