Remembering this very moment, in a vintage english barn set in a tranquil country woods, nestled within the beautiful rolling hills and valleys in Alfonso, know that I fell in love with you all over again, the way I do every single day. 💋 #EspeciallyMEDforYU
REJECTED by my Fiancé 😂👉🏼 Every time I would travel to LA (before I moved there) I would send Harry a message. 📩 Harry is born and raised in Los Angeles so I would ask him where to eat or where to go while in town.
👉🏼 After he would give me the most amazing recommendations (he is a human Yelp! Lol) I would ask if he wanted to meet up or join me and my friends! ☺️ He would always decline and say he was busy or had plans. 😂🙏🏼
👉🏼 The last time I was out in California with my sister and our friend Sam before I moved out there, after declining to join us for dinner, he invited us to meet him and his friends out afterward.
At the time I didn’t think anything of it because I had only met him in person a handful of times and just thought of him as someone I knew through mutual friends.
💓 All it took was that one night to know I could never live in a world that didn’t have Harry in it. I laughed harder than I ever thought possible, couldn’t stop smiling and couldn’t believe what an amazing person he was. I knew there was something there I had never felt before. 💖
Although we didn’t start dating until a couple of months after that night, that night changed both of our lives and if it never happened, I’m not sure we would be getting married in 3 days!! 💍😱💍
If I’ve learned anything from my journey, it’s to always take a chance, don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and that love will truly find you when you least expect it. 💕
And if you’re wondering, I asked Harry to meet up the next day after our night out and he told me he was busy with a fantasy football draft 😂 Some things never change!! 😜 Xo Melis
