Vote for Candace Abrahamson to Win a 5 Night Paris Stay from Paris Perfect
At 16 my parents moved to California and I started a new high school (not what any teenager wants). I was quite miserable, but as luck would have it, in a matter of months I met this amazing guy and we fell head over heels in love. We never officially broke up, but drifted apart when we went off to separate colleges. Then at 22 I married a man I worked with. That first love from high school sent me a letter saying, "Don't do it! It will be the biggest mistake of your life because no one can love you as I do." Did I listen? No, I married this man anyway. Seven years later, though, I knew in my heart it had been a mistake. After my divorce my first love (who had waited for me all those years) proposed marriage. We've now been happily married 26 years and have two beautiful children. We have lived abroad and travelled extensively. His career has taken us many places, but I would follow this man anywhere! He is truly the best thing that ever happened to me, the love of my life, the perfect partner for me and we are proof that you can find your soul mate at a young age! Our favorite quote is Browning's, "Come grow old with me, the best is yet to be."
