You always hear of those romantic first time encounters with a soulmate. Like “…the door opened and there she was.” Although I really expected my story to be like this, it just wasn’t like that. Mine happened at the most awkward time of my life – The Middle School Era! The time in your life you usually want to forget. For me, the best things in life have always been those in which I wasn’t anticipating or trying to fabricate. Those moments in life that were organic and purely divine. Ok, so where am I going with this… I love to create! It’s just a part of who I am as an artist. But I have learned that there are some things in life that you can’t just make up, they just happen. For a long time I was trying to create a story that didn’t exist. I was searching and waiting for this imaginary soulmate to appear. But something much different happened. Years later, my eyes were opened and there she was. She was literally always there. The woman I am now married to. And now I have found something much more beautiful than anything I could ever create! True Love.
