FROM COSTA RICA TO FAYETTEVILLE, NC ALMOST LIKE FATE

I’ve never been the kind of guy who believes in fate. We make our own choices in life, and we get to choose how we respond to whatever life sends our way. That said, I do think some things are meant to be, like my wife, Julia, and me. To be honest, we should have never even met. She’s from Costa Rica and I grew up in a military town called Fayetteville, North Carolina, near Fort Bragg. It wasn’t likely that our paths would ever cross. Fortunately for me, Julia’s sister was married to a guy who was stationed at Fort Bragg. Shortly after Julia’s sister had her first baby, her husband was scheduled to go into a military training course, which meant that he would be gone for several months. Not eager to be left all alone with a new baby, Julia’s sister asked Julia to come up and stay with her for a while. Back then, I was a college student working part-time at a hardware store to pay for school. It just so happened that one of my coworkers lived right next door to Julia’s sister. When Julia came to town, we met through my coworker. We hit it off right away. Julia is this nice, down-to-earth person who makes you want to be around her. She’s stunning, but not pretentious, which I really liked. We started dating and got married right before I graduated college and went to law school. I knew Julia was the one because of how supported I felt when we were dating. I’d never been in a relationship with someone who didn’t just put up with my habits; she actually

seemed to like them. Julia was someone special. She made me feel good when we hung out that I just couldn’t let her go. Marrying Julia was the best decision of my life. I knew law school was going to be tough, and I didn’t plan on getting

married right before starting that ordeal, but I’m glad I did. Having Julia's support helped me

get through some of the tough parts of law school and make it to the other side.

Julia and I have been married for 15 years, and she’s still my favorite person to be around. We always have a great time together. At the end of the long day, she’s the person I want to see most. I thought I was crazy about Julia when we first got married, but I managed to fall more in love with her when our kids came along. We have two kids together, and she’s the best mom. It’s clear in everything she does how much Julia loves her family. This month, I want to send some love to my awesome valentine. Julia, you mean the world to me. Thanks for making every day something to look forward to. I might not believe in fate, but I know you were meant to be part of my life.

I love you!
