Our Love Story
I had just moved to London after finishing my studies. My husband (Greek), was on his way back to the USA from Greece and did an overnight layover in London. He stayed with a mutual friend. We all went for dinner (December 4th, 2010) and we had an undeniable spark. We added each other on Facebook the following day and talked every day since. We started our love story when living in 2 different countries.
I went to visit him in Miami for Valentine’s day. We shared our first kiss when we saw each other at Miami International Airport. He came to visit me in London for Easter, and I moved to Miami in the summer. Because of visa issues, I had to go back to Europe 1 year later. We did 1 year of a long-distance relationship, seeing each other every 3 months.
One year later, my husband moved to Chicago. When I went to Chicago to see him for the first time since he moved, he took me around to see the city. We walked to the Ferris Wheel at the Navy Pier. At the top of the wheel, he popped the question! And that was not all. Once we left the Ferris Wheel, he said: “Let’s keep walking, I want to tell you something. We will get married tomorrow, so you can finally move permanently to the USA”. So my engagement lasted 1 day! We got married at the City Hall, had our daughter 5 years later and got remarried in a church 6 years later.
