“All the while you were in front of me I never realized
I just can’t believe I didn’t see it in your eyes
I didn’t see it, I can’t believe it; oh but I feel it
When you sing to me”2015-09-25_0001

They say good things come to those who wait… that must be why God gave me such a great blessing in Zulema. In the two years I waited for her to come around, I was being prepared to receive that blessing. And even to this day I’ve been growing as a man and as a partner to her. Now we pray for our future as husband and wife and we’ve got a great foundation to go on. She’s the ying to my yang, but I’ll let her tell you in her own words…

That couldn’t be more true; Alex really is “mi media naranja.” I didn’t see it at first, but apparently everyone else did! Before we started dating, it took some convincing from mutual friends. Our first date was getting pupusas in North Bergen, followed by Despicable Me. We loved the movie; little did I know that would be the start of not only a great friendship, but my first love.
Since we started dating in 2012, I’ve experienced what it means to be with someone who truly compliments you, knows you in and out, and loves you just the same. With his actions, Alex has shown me what a man of honor and integrity looks like. I love him for the way he treats others and for the way he respects me. Most of all I love his kind eyes–you will see what I mean if you look close enough! I can’t wait to call him my husband, and I know he can’t wait to call me his wife.
One last thing, the first time I realized Alex may be the guy for me, this is the song that played on the radio:
“All the while you were in front of me I never realized
I just can’t believe I didn’t see it in your eyes
I didn’t see it, I can’t believe it; oh but I feel it
When you sing to me”
 
I never told him that, but now that he knows, Alex should really thank that DJ.
