It was five years ago today that the shy blond girl humored the obnoxious goofball soldier boy by accepting his facebook friend request. Before she could even realize what was happening he had become her absolute best friend. Two months later on a serene lakeside with rain gently falling as the setting sun painted the clouds in gold and crimson, he professed a love so great that he did not wish to spend his life without her. She said yes, he gave her his name and together they have made a life, a love and a family that grows sweeter every day as best friends and lovers.
I didn't believe in fairy tales and happily-ever-afters until that silly soldier boy insisted I accept his friend request and then made me fall in love with him.
