Lucky in Love

View More:

Hey internet,

I’m trying my hand at the daily prompt today. It’s about luck. I consider myself lucky in many ways. One, in that I found a job while being a struggling university student. I applied in the morning, and got a callback for an interview that afternoon. Three days later after a surprisingly easy interview, I had the job. Getting a job had never gone that smoothly before.

Through this job, I was lucky enough to find Rory, who I’m going to be marrying in exactly one week. Luck and chance worked together to find me a job, where my future  husband was waiting.

Here’s a quick version of our love story:

  • At the end of 2011 , we met and became fast friends working together at a local supermarket.
  • A few months later, he asked for my number and asked me out on a date
  • Immediately after, we became the office gossip as we were officially dating
  • During the next year we fell in love, met each other’s respective immediate and then extended families
  • Moved in together after two years of dating
  • Lived a happy, cruisy little day to day life together for another two years. Both found steady, full time jobs that support our lifestyle.
  • After four years of being together, he proposed during a picnic on Mt Victoria
  • One year later, we’re getting married.

  5. […] Engagement Photo by Kent Yu. This was posted on March 4. It was beautifully shot for our engagement shoot with Kent, and this is my personal favourite one. We shot this on Breaker Bay during ‘magic hour’ and Kent captured many beautiful moments. I posted it because it was exactly three weeks till our wedding, and I wanted to share one of our many engagement photos! I’ve used a couple more photos from this shoot in other blogs, like Discussions to Have Before Marriage and Lucky in Love. […]

  6. […] Exactly one month ago, Rory and I said our vows and got married. We had an amazing wedding, and I still love to look through all the pictures and videos that everyone took. I posted a long rambly post about the day (Our Wedding) after we got back from our Fiji Honeymoon (which I have also posted about). In celebration of this, I wanted to look back through the history of our relationship. I did a quick version in an older post called Lucky in Love. […]
