Our Story

I met my husband in high school, when I was 16 and he was 15. We quickly became friends and spent most of our free time together. At first, he was only a friend, and initially I thought he would be good match for my sister, but he asked me out instead!

We were always together at school! 

We dated for a year and a half in high school until graduation. After graduation, we decided that the best thing for us would be to part ways. We both wanted to enjoy college, Edgar stayed in Mexico, and I moved to Texas, so it made sense at the time.

High School Graduation - 2010

Well, we both dated other people, but didn't find what we were looking for in a long-term relationship. So in early December 2012, we reconnected on Facebook. We spent hours texting, chatting, Skyping and Facetiming. Finally, at a Christmas party, we met face to face. 

By the end of that party, I knew that one day, I would marry Edgar. I went to Mexico again at New Years and we had our first date. We talked about life and our goals and agreed that we would only pursue a relationship if we both wanted it to end in marriage. By the time Edgar dropped me off, we were sure. Over the next year, we took every opportunity to call, chat with, and visit each other.

Edgar liked to take pictures of us Skyping...

Then... On December 14, 2013, Edgar proposed to me! He had talked with my father previously, and our families were on board. So, he called our friends, and got their help to plan the most amazing proposal! He even got my family to Mexico without me knowing! The proposal was followed by a surprise engagement party. I was so fortunate for find an amazing man who worked so hard to make me happy.

It took him a while, but he finally got down on one knee!

In the next year, we both graduated from college, I moved to Mexico, and we both started our first years as teachers. And on December 19, 2014, we got married! It was without a doubt the best day of our lives! We had such an amazing day celebrating with our friends and family. 

Our wedding day was the perfect beginning to our fairy tale!

Now, we've been married almost six months, and it has been quite the adventure. We're still getting used to our new schedule and each other's annoying habits... We've had some rough days, but we love each other and every day we renew our promise to be faithful and true. Now that we are together, we look forward to see what life brings our way! 

Our family of four!
