Love & Friendship

 Personal Post by Anniek

Many many years ago on the 21st of November in the year 2008 I had the great privilege to be Maid of Honor at Suze's wedding. She looked so beautiful and the venue was amazing.

I always dreamed about being a bride myself and finally that day is coming. Together with our son my husband to be asked me to marry him. When I came home from work the whole room was decorated with rose leaves and candles. On the table stood a bottle of champagne.

My son came to me with a little box and helped me unwrap it. In this little box was a beautiful diamond ring. I was already in tears at that moment and I think I didn't even say yes out loud I just nodded yes through my tears.

So now the planning begins...what date will we choose, where will we hold the reception, which cake will we take and most importantly my dress. Ooooohhh I am so excited!

Suze has been my friend since the year 2000. We met through a pen pal ad and started writing. We just clicked and I feel so blessed with her being in my life. If there is one person in this world who truly knows me inside out it is Suze. She has stood by me through my darkest times and has been happy with me through all of the good times.

This time she is returning the favor of being my Maid of Honor. I couldn't be more happy than having my best friend at my side on this very special day. Thank you sweetheart for always being there for me, for every journey we have been on and for every journey we will discover together.
