My husband and I eloped on March 23, 2010. I live in Canada and my love lives in the Dominican Republic. Due to a very slow immigration process, we have been physically apart for most of our marriage, but we continue to grow closer every single day. Our love life line has been skype and Bob Marley! I havn't seen my husband in 6 months and this honeymoon week together would mean the world to us!! We have had to skip our "honeymoon" stage and focus on the tougher side of love with strength as we combat distance with trust, devotion, respect, and patience. My husband is the love of my life, and being away from the most important person to you is the most difficult thing for your heart and soul to endure.
We truly had "love at first sight". We first "met" online through a mutual friend and we spoke for months, developing a strong love before we physically met in person. I flew to his city in the Dominican Republic and as I anxiously got off of the plane my soul felt at ease when I saw him. It was like we had been together for our whole lives and everything flowed and continues to flow so naturally and effortlessly. We knew then and there that we’d walk together through all that life had in store for us as best friends and lovers.
There is something so unique and romantic about tree houses! They are mystical and magical – I just imagine spending my time cuddled up and warm with my love on a cold evening in a beautiful tree house, surrounded by nature or happily swinging in hammocks on the deck of our tree house, enjoying the sunshine and reggae music on a beautiful warm day! Ohh, what an enticing scene! I’ve always had a love for tree houses, and I imagine traveling through different countries with my husband, experiencing all the different tree houses that the world has to offer us. Romance!
Well, my husband and I don’t live together right now, due to our ongoing immigration process. But...
We both love hammocks! We have a wonderful hammock on our balcony in Canada, and my husband has a hammock at his home in the Dominican... it’s so nice because we can be on our laptops on a sunny day, speaking to each other and swinging in our hammocks..we can day dream and it almost feels like we are laying in them together!
As the months have gone by since we were married, and we spend our time in different countries, we’ve created books for each other that include pictures, quotes, art work, etc. We both have one of these books in our homes which bring a piece of our love into our homes and remind ourselves and our friends of our love.
Last but not least, flowers! Our balcony in Canada is covered in flowers, as is our home in the Dominican Republic. We both enjoy having a colourful outdoors! We look forward to the day when we’re living together and can give our garden as much love as we give each other.
