Shawn and I were set up on a blind date in 2013. We instantly hit it off. I remember calling my mom after the first date to tell her how well it went. I described the evening as ‘easy’, and I still refer to our relationship as just that: easy.
My fiance, Sadashiv, and I met through work. He started out as someone I admired and that became a friendship which ultimately turned into love. When we became engaged, I knew I wanted my parents to be part of the wedding planning process!
My daughter Gianna and I are very close. She lived at home for 28 years, so her absence has been difficult to adjust to, but I am so proud she found a wonderful, loving, kind, and hard working man like James.
Seven years ago I had a routine surgery that went incredibly wrong and left me hospitalized for three months. Afterwards I was sent to a local rehab hospital for physical, occupational therapy and to meet my future husband.
