    My Husband Steven and I met in 2011 in America when he was working for N.A.M.E (traveling carnivals) when I was dared to ask him a silly question. After I totally embarrassed myself, I ran away like a scared little girl because I was (only 17) later that evening I went to work and guess who came up to my food stand? Steven. I was so embarrassed, and I immediately said sorry about the silly question I asked you earlier on today. We started chatting, exchanged numbers and then I invited him and a few of his friends to my house that night for a bonfire. The rest is really history. That night Steven told my mother that he was going to marry me one day, and so he did. Through all the ups and downs and distance while we were dating for three years he proposed to me December 17th 2013 when I came to visit him in South Africa. I returned home January 2014 and we became very impatient with him trying to find work in America to come back so I booked my plane ticket and came back to South Africa in April 2014 and we had our very small, beautiful wedding on May 24th 2014 <3 I could not imagine my life being any better than it is with my amazing husband in my life. But now we are trying our hardest and planning to come back home to my family. We have been in this process now since our wedding and the hardest part is being away from my family this whole time.
