This couple’s love story started January 2, a day after a new year, filled with new opportunities. David sent Casey a wink, and the two immediately starting chatting on Match. It only took a few days before they decided to meet for Sunday brunch, which turned into a 7 hour-long first date!
“The date was going so well, I couldn’t resist teasing Casey and telling her she should kiss me halfway through our meal,” David recalls. “I’m so glad I did because that kiss sealed the deal that we did, in fact, have chemistry!”
The two spent the next week getting to know each other, going to a local fair, grabbing coffee, enjoying picnics on the beach, and even cooking meals together in the kitchen. It didn’t take long for the two to know they had something special growing between the two of them.
But it was dealing with unexpected and personal tragedy that made David realize Casey was it for him.
“Casey was there for me during an incredibly difficult time in my life, staying up with me the whole night even though she had work in the morning,” David wrote. “It really tested our relationship, and that’s when I knew she was The One.”
Shortly thereafter, the couple was engaged and were married this past April in front of friends and family in David’s hometown. And, the best news yet: the pair are expecting their first child on New Year’s Eve!
“It’s been a journey,” David wrote. “Casey has told me several times I saved her, but little does she know — she saved me, too.”
We couldn’t be happier for the two of you and your little one on the way! We have a feeling 2018 is going to be your best year yet.
