One hotel reception shift I had a pizza delivery man come in at lunch and drop off a Large Hawaiian, bottle of Fanta and chocolate lava cake; all which had been ordered and paid for by Mike online, from America!!60 days out from us meeting in Scotland for New Years 2011 I received a box which had 60 letters; one each day until we met up!
After flying home from Africa and fitting back into “reality”, roses arrived for me on my first day back at work!We both worked 2 jobs to pay for all of our travel; 16 hour days, in my case while at the same time studying Journalism and Law full time at university and still maintaining a pretty impressive social life.If I had a dollar for every time someone told me my relationship was doomed I would be set for life.We swapped emails and phone numbers, not having any clue that our wedding in Hawaii would be less than three years later. I firmly believe that you can make anything work if you want to. I wont lie – long distance for 18 months was incredibly hard, but we made it work by maintaining: We spoke every day.I got an amazing phone plan where I had unlimited calls to international mobiles, and we would talk for hours.
