“Love isn’t something you find, Love is something that finds you” This is a quote I have heard in the past that fits so well with the love story of Daniel Botero and I. I first met Daniel at my high school prom where we had mutual friends. Shortly after high school Daniel immediately went to the Marines where he served a total of four years. April 2013 Daniel was back to the civilian life where we instantly re-connected. September 25, 2013 was a day I will never forget because it was the day he asked me to be his girlfriend. From then on I knew this was someone that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. A few years later the love of my life popped the question in a way any girl would dream of. He asked in front of all of our friends and family in a forest preserve where we had one of our first dates. I am now engaged and can’t wait to start a new chapter with my other half.
