Since this is a blog dedicated to celebrating the love stories of my sweet clients, I thought a great way to kick it off would be with the love story of yours truly!
It was just your regular Wednesday night at our mid-week church service in Los Angeles. I had him on my eye for a couple of months, actually. Just earlier that year I had moved to LA and pretty soon after I kept hearing all of these great things about this Angel Flores from numerous different people in our church family. Naturally, I assumed he was already married, as he sounded like an incredible man, so I figured he had been snatched up already. At some point, I can’t remember when, I put two and two together that he was not only single, but also super fine! What are the odds?! A man of great character, single, and a stud?! One in a trillion, truly.
Anyway, back to that Wednesday night. The service had ended and quite a while after I was still hanging around, chatting with people. As I was talking to my friend Margaret, I noticed him out of the corner of my eye sort of hovering nearby. Could he possibly be waiting to talk to me?? He was! As soon as Margaret and I parted ways, he swooped in and introduced himself. “Hi, I’m Angel”, he said. In my mind I said “oh, I know who you are!”, but outloud I very cooly said, “oh, hey, I’m Nicole.”
We clicked like peanut butter and jelly from that very first conversation. I put on the southern charm hard, which worked and he asked me out on a date! Yes! For a few months we spent a lot of time just getting to know eachother and really became best friends. Then, one night under the stars and moonlight (literally), he confessed his love for me and asked me to be his girlfriend. It was like out of a storybook, y’all.
We dated for just a little over a year and then on Christmas Eve, on video in front of my whole family, he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife! After we were engaged for about 3 minutes he asked me if I would mind going on quarterly honeymoons for the rest of our lives – a mini-honeymoon every three months. What?! Who is this man?! Um, yes, I’m okay with that.
Now we are a little family of four. We just had our first baby girl in November 2016 and our other child is a goofy, chubby english bulldog named Bulldozer.
