Seth and I met on JDate in 2010. When we met online, we discovered we lived just down the street and around the corner from each other. It was crazy to find out we lived in the same development!
Our first date was on Tuesday, October 12, 2010. We went to City Place in downtown Palm Beach. First, we had drinks at Villagio, and then enjoyed dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House (pretty nice for a first date)!
I knew from that night on that we had something good. He said the sweetest things and made me feel really special. I will never forget our first kiss as we were waiting for the car by the valet. The very next day, I met his three wonderful children. I knew right from that moment that he was a keeper! The love he has for his children was very attractive to me.
On Friday, May 11th, 2012, I experienced the best day of my life; Seth proposed to me! He had his children play a part in the engagement as well. He planned the whole thing himself and had shirts personally made for each child to wear (including a shirt for himself). They were all lined up and made me close my eyes. At the time, I was thinking they were putting on a show for me. When I opened my eyes and the shirts read, “Will You Marry Us?” I was completely shocked! I had no idea! Seth was standing with a beautiful bouquet of flowers next to his three wonderful children; each one had a smile on their face. It was the best feeling in the world!
And the rest is history…we will be getting married on January 5th, 2013 at Temple Beth Am in Miami, Florida.
