Cassy & Byron
Cassy & Byron[dropcap color=”rosy”]M[/dropcap]y Fiancé and I have been dating for over three years. Byron, my fiancé, was living in the US when we started dating in 2009 and I was in Cape Town finishing my matric year. It was extremely hard having a long distance relationship. After matric I went to Au pair in the states for a year. Byron would fly often to come visit me over weekends as I lived in Texas and he lived in Florida. It was hard when things didn’t work out for me and I flew back to SA six months early but we loved each other enough to make it work.
We skyped often and he would phone me in his lunch breaks at work or during his evening classes. Even though it was hard not being able to physically see each other we wanted to keep trying. He would come down to visit me for holidays but every time I had to drop him off at the airport my heart sunk and I felt so depressed. Eventually in 2011 he moved back to SA and we were able to have a normal relationship falling more and more in love with each other everyday till 27 Dec 2012. I was house sitting at the time but Byron told me to meet him at my house. When I got there I saw a note on the gate saying follow me with a red ribbon attached to it that lead all the way through my house to the front door. I found rose petals in a pathway round the corner to a big heart made in petals saying marry me. Byron was standing at the end with the ring in his hand. It was the most amazing day of my life and I love my fiancé so much.
