S: Devin and Sadia
BC: Grow old with me, the best is yet to be....
FC: The Story of Us
1: Once upon a time.... in lands far away
2: There was a boy and a girl | from the moment we started talking, I knew there was something special about you. You made me so incredibly happy. Before I knew it, I was addicted and my day was never complete without you.
3: Who became the best of friends | I wont ever forget staying up all night on energy drinks, talking alll day long and for hours on the phone. Everything about you captivated me. And I continue to find out new things about you all the time, that make me love you even more.
4: Before they knew it... | "Distance means so little when someone means so much." | "We are the perfect couple, we're just not in the perfect situation." | Sadia:you have to stop being so sweet :P Devin:haha, why? Devin:its like my job:P Sadia:lol sorry made a sammich Devin::P Sadia:ill get used to it though Devin :its okay:P Devin:you better..:P cuz ur stuck wit me till you like run me off:P Sadia:lol that would be like a dream come true :P Devin:haha, well you already are Devin:so you gotta deal with me Sadia:lol you make it em like its bad thing, talking to you is so awesome, i can only imgaine what being around you will be like Devin::) but for days on end? Devin:u do know forever is a long time right? :P Sadia:llol we talk for hours and hours haha yes Sadia:we talk to each other more than any other "couple" i know and we dont get of each other Devin: yeah :) thats why.. you should be my girlfriend Devin::) Sadia::) i wanna be Sadia:we have just enough craziness to always keep things interesting Devin:lol yepp Sadia::) you amaze me Devin:haha, well i'm glad you think that:) you amaze me too though babe Sadia::) Devin:be my girlfriend sadia.. :) Sadia:really? :) Devin:yesss really if u wanna Devin:i wanna try it:) Sadia:i really doo :) Devin:then sadia, will you be my lovely beautiful and crazy girlfriend?

5: They had fallen for each other | I fell for you faster than I imagined I would. I could never find anything about you that Id change if I was given the opportunity. And every day I just thought to my self wow hes just too good to be true. But before I knew it I was head over heels madly in love with the most amazing guy I have ever known. | Your display picture from when I first met you. You're so handsome (:
6: far away but never far apart
7: far away but never far apart
8: Sometimes I think its fate that bought us together. People meet in so many ways but our story is far from conventional. What if you didn't have a yearbook profile? What if I never secretly admired you? What if you never added me? What if we never talked? All of these had to happen just so we could be where we are today. The more I talked to you, I found out more of the things that I loved about you. Remember how skeptical we were? We always said we were just friends but wanted so much more than that. It didn't help when everyone else around us kept saying it wouldn't work out. But finally you told me what we were both thinking. I'm not entirely sure if it was because you were on medication or you just worked up courage to say it :P But when you finally asked me to be yours, it was the beginning of something amazing. We didn't know whether it would work out. What we did know was we were going to try our best to make sure it did.
9: We proved them all wrong. We found out that even though we are so far apart, we're meant to be together. So far its been wonderful. You are everything I have wanted in my dream guy. I didn't think that he existed. You treat me better than I could have ever wished for. Every single day you've been a part of my life has been great. Even when I have a bad day, you eventually make me smile. You are a wonderful person baby, and I'm just so blessed to have you in my life. If I had a choice I wouldn't want you to be so far away. But I think in a way this distance has taught us a lot of things. We have an immense amount of trust and patience. We've learned that good things take time. But when you do eventually get them they feel so much better. All I know is I want to spend the rest of my life making you happy. You fit perfectly into my life from the very start. And even though we have our own hopes and dreams for the future, they have combined into one. I'm looking forward to every day that I wake up next to you, and have the opportunity to make you as happy as you've made me.
10: Letters | baby, ur so perfect(: a year ago, i couldn't imagine this the way it is right now i mean, when i met you, i could tell you were an awesome person, and i specifically remember wishing you lived here so i could atleast get to know you better, but i never imagined you'd be my wife honestly, asking you to be my gf was probably one of the more important decisions in my life it marked the point in time where i became more than just your friend it marked the point in time that you became my princess and it was the beginning of our lives together. | Sadia, I'm just writing this to let you know that I appreciate everything you do for me. You are truly an amazing person, and I have been nothing short of blessed to have you in my life. I honestly feel that you complete me and I know that you are my one and only, my true love, and my future. I have never felt this way before. But I have discovered something about love. Love isn't exactly like the movies say it is(even if it is with a princess) :p But there are some things that they did get right. Like it is the best feeling in the world, and truer love will last forever. I know all of this because I am in love with the perfect girl for me. I can't how it happened, but I thought about things a lot today.. And I have come to realize something that the movies got one huge thing wrong, well, to me they did. For me, it doesn't just happen over night like in the movies. It’s a process that is continually taking place. Its something that you might not even realize its happening at first. And even when you are in love with that person, the process is still going on. Sadia, for me, it's always growing. I love you more today than I did yesterday, and I will love you tomorrow more than I did today. This process.. I don't know when it even started, but I have an idea. It started when I first realized that there was something different about you, something that I couldn't really explain at the time. This was ages ago, back when I first started talking to you. So in a weird kind of way, I've been falling for you since the beginning. So, I am in love with you. And I'm going to marry you in June 2014. End of story. you and me are going to make this work
11: I MISS YOUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dear Sadia (This is me finally writing that letter I said I might write to you), I guess I should start off by telling you how amazing the past 2 months(minus a week) have been. Well, I guess you have made me the happiest person ever for a lot longer than that, but.. the past 2 months have been uber nice. But anyways..(my A.D.D. is showing right now, and I should probably be asleep).. I am now the happiest that I have ever been, and it's all your fault! :P But it's okay, I'll forgive you You know, you have taught me what love really is. Love just isn't something that I say, it's the emotion that ties me to you, it's what holds me with you, for forever and ever. It's what makes us inseparable. Every time that I say "I love you" I'm not just saying it, I'm feeling it as well. And every time that you say it, I get butterflies in my tummy and a smile on my face. When you say it, that’s all that I can think about. It erases everything else that I am thinking about, and all I can think is " ::D". I have fallen for the most amazing girl in the world, and I honestly can see myself with you for forever. You are the first, and you are the last. You are my "one and only", my princess, my boo, my heroine, my love, overall.. you are my everything. Ummm, there isn't much of a point to this letter I guess.. just to make you happy I've thought about you all day today, btw. And I'm not going to the lake with Jesse. And I have some fireworks I miss you. And I love you ohhh soooooooo very much :D P.S. - Let's make this last forever baby | I can't seem to go to sleep:/ it must be because I'm a kiwi at heart.. or because I am addicted to you and I can't seem to go to sleep without talking to you first. I think it’s the second option So, I am writing this because I can't stop thinking about you. I miss you already. I guess times like this are when I really realize what you mean to me, how much I truly do LOVE you, and how much of a part of my life you are. You mean more to me than any other girl ever has. You are my addiction, my crush, my butter rolls, and even my love, but most of all, you are my best friend. And I promise you will always be my friend. I REALLY want you to be more than just my friend forever, but I understand that things can sometimes change, although I really hope they don't, because you are making me the happiest person ever and I wouldn't trade this feeling for anything in the world. But for now, I will just promise we'll be friends So.. something else to talk about.. I played 2 games instead of just the one, which you should known cuz I sent you a text. We won both. the first 5-2. the second 11-4. I played goalie most of the first game. and scored 3 the second game when I played defense.
12: hey baby (: I love you. I haven't been the greatest girlfriend lately so I thought I'd remind you just how much I love you You amaze me babe, like every single day. I'm so glad you are a part of my life, and so lucky that you are my boyfriend and future husband (: You're so different from anyone else out there. I remember you asking me why i felt the way I did about you and not just any other guy. Back then I knew that there was something unique about you but I didn't quite know how to explain it. But now I think I do.... You are my absolute best friend. I've never been so close or comfortable with anyone else. I have so much fun when I'm talking to you, and I never get sick of it. You make me laugh and smile constantly. And I just always find myself wanting to be in your company. I trusted you completely before we became more than just friends. You started to know every little thing about me and you even remembered, it was like you knew me better than I knew myself. I think that is just how I started realising that you aren't like anyone else. You have incredibly good looks (you are sooooooo sexy) as well as an exceptional personality. Even though we are apart you always make me feel so loved and cared about. (: You always make me feel important and like a priority which I don't mind if I'm not You truly treat me like a princess and spoil me. I know that you'll be with me through thick and thin and I can always depend on you. Even when Im having one of my lame insecure days, you never give up on me and don't stop until all my worries vanish. You always know the right things to say. You never make me sad, and its impossible for us to argue or get mad at each other. No one could ever make me this happy, or be so in love. Whenever I sign in and you say "hey boo" I instantly have a huge smile on my face. I love everything about you. I love making you you happy and "happy" People may think I'm crazy but I know this is it, the one that will last forever. The day you became mine, I got everything I ever wished for. All the sweet things you say and do give me butterflies and make my heart race. You showed me how to fall in love, and just how amazing it can be. You made me a lot braver than I used to be. Its funny how my friends can tell how much we love we each other. Even they think you are a wonderful guy and I'm really lucky to have you. So it's not just me. I'm glad I gave my heart to you, the best possible person I could give it to. One of the best decisions I've ever made. You aren't just a guy, you are the guy. The one who is perfect for me, the one who completes me and the one who I'm going to spend forever with. You are my baby, my best friend, my prince charming, my sexy-pants, my cuddle bear, my husband and my better half. You are the best person I've ever known, and that's not just because I'm in love with you. I am going to marry you baby. You are my partner in life and I cant wait to spend a lifetime making you happy. I love you, I'm in love with you and I always will be (that's a promise). Boo bear (:
13: hey babe Im going today so I thought Id write you an email before I go. I know you dont like emails but Im writing one anyway :P Im going to miss you sooo much incase you didnt know already. I hope your package arrives soon, cuz Im getting kinda impatient. You can eat ur candy and think of me :P I decided that during these 2 weeks Im going to exercise my butt off. To kill time really. So next time you see me hopefully i wont have a food baby haha. I love you devin like woah (: You are the best boyfriend everrrr no lie. Im so lucky to have you. I just cant get enough of you. I want to be with you forever and always :) So since Im gone you have to try to be less of a kiwi You can stop pretending for a little while :P and get rid of those invisible eye bags. I love you so so so much :) | hey babe (: There isnt really a point to this email, its just a little bit of what's on my mind :) I love you. And that doesn't even begin to describe it. I know I tell you that I do all the time, but there's so much behind it. It's how I feel about you overall. I love you as my best friend and as my boyfriend. I care about you. I adore you. I appreciate you. I admire you. And I'm totally and utterly in love with you. I can't cover it all just by using those three words. But I have forever with you to let you know just exactly how I feel. From the first time we kiss to when we fall asleep next to each other, each moment will make my feelings more clear. Waiting is the hardest part, but its easy when I'm waiting for the perfect guy for me. If we can make it through this we can make it through anything. We have immense amounts of trust, patience, perseverance and love, more than anyone else I know. And it will pay off over time when everything is easier. I love us :) I got so incredibly lucky when you came into my life. I think about it every day. I always find myself when I think about you, just how you are everything I could ever want, and how our lives just happened to cross. It was like a one in a billion chance which is what we are like, we're one of those very rare perfect couples :) maybe because its just meant to be this way. The way you make me feel is so unreal. I've never been happier :) Every love song reminds me of you and I daydream about you all day. I never knew it was possible to love someone as much as I love you. The great thing is that I just keep getting deeper in love with you, its endless. You're all I think about day and night but I can't complain, there's nothing else I'd rather have on my mind. We live in a world where everything is always changing, we will grow together and change too, but one thing that won't ever change is the fact that I will always be falling more and more in love you. I want to kiss you, hold you and be with you. I can't wait :) You are the best part of my day. You are the best thing to ever happen to me. I'm 110% sure I want to marry you and spend the rest of my life loving you unconditionally. You are the love of my life. This is forever. I love you baby, Boobear :)

16: They decided to have adventures
17: And this was the first of many | i know sometimes things might not seem the easiest, but babe, we are gonna have a million adventures together. every second with you will be an adventure all on its own. i have 3 words for you that have kind of lost its meaning to some people, but i promise i mean them when i say that I LOVE YOU
18: After months of planning
19: It finally became a reality | We both worked so hard to make it happen. Saving as much as we could to just spend a little time together. I know how much I meant to you when you started saving just to see me. It isn't one of your strengths :P I can't put a price on how much that trip was worth. It put everything into perspective for me. I wanted you to be mine forever. I knew what we had was real and rare. You were wayyyy better than I ever could have imagined. We made so many priceless memories that will last forever (: I was soo nervous to meet you. It didnt help that you took forever to come out of the terminal. But the moment I saw your face all the nerves just melted away and I wanted to give you a giant hug. Being blond, you had to carry your suitcases instead of getting a trolley. My hug ended up with me laying on top of you and your bags on the floor. Wasn't fun at the time but I guess it couldn't have been any more memorable. Its something we will always love about. I've fallen head over heels for you, literally.
20: From the moment they met, | I was so nervous before you walked out. I didn;t want anyone staring at me when I hugged you. But when we fell over, I was pretty sure we had caught everyones attention. Whenever I look back at that day it makes me laugh. Thats something to tell the kids about. Everything just happened so fast. When you kissed me for the first time I felt crazy butterflies. I'd waiting so long for that and it was better then I imagined. From the moment we met it was as if I'd known you my whole life.
21: They were inseperable
23: The pier at mission bay. I finally got you to swim in the water! It was a beautiful day with the most amazing person :)
25: A really awesome night. You convinced me the whole time you werent drunk but you were! You fell on your butt :P I promise I wont tell your mum :)
29: It was a wonderful day. I totally got spoilt by you :) I loved how you made the room all pretty with balloons. And the dress you got me is definitely one of my favourites :) | Sadia
33: Not as amazing as your zoo but we had fun Nonetheless. Not paying bus drivers enough or knowing where we were was all just part of the fun.
35: It was beautiful up there. Even though you were scared you still managed to walk along the glass. You trusted me to hold on to your hand. I'll always be there to hold your hand, whenever you need me to.
36: I love you Devin. I knew this would always be difficult but up until tonight I had no idea just how much. The past 3 weeks I stepped out of reality, my everyday life and spent time with you. Every single moment has been so wonderful. You've make me happy beyond belief. The memories we've made are the start of many more to come. I'll look back to each day and smile about how much fun I had by your side. There are so many things that i'll miss. Your silly songs that you would make up on the spot, your amazing smile, the way you look first thing in the morning, how you would stick your arms up and twirl around in the shower, the way you say things outloud when you shouldnt, your happy butt dance, how you would look down at me and just smile, your kisses, late night walks, how youd always be naughty and grab me, watching you sleep, holding your hand, hearing you say “ I love you”, and being in your arms where I felt invincible. I was a little upset about not going out tonight. I really wanted to do something exciting for your last night here but also to try and forgot that tomorrow ill be the only one in my bed. I know I told you I wasnt upset but it wasnt to a point where I could say I was truly upset. I really hate making you the slightest bit sad. And I know you worry a lot when I get upset. It hasnt been too bad though. Im watching you sleep and its the cutest thing ever. We knew things would be hard when we tried to give this a go. But this is what we both want and we will get eventually. We just have to be strong and patient. We're the lucky ones. People wait a whole lifetime to find their soulmate. We found ours already. I was so nervous before I met you. I didnt know what you would expect me to be. After this time Ive realised that I can always be myself around you. You still love me exactly how I am. Im so comfortable around you. I trust you with my innermost thoughts and I know you understand me better than anyone else could. I know I'll look like an asian in the morning but I dont really care. You wont be here with me anymore but all the love you showered me with will be. You are amazing and worth waiting forever and a day for. I know Im not perfect. And perhaps you saw more of my flaws while you've been here. But you've loved me regardless. Im going to be with you forever baby. I promise you that with all my heart. I love you (I hope Ive shown you just how much). I hope you remember all the wonderful times we had and our crazy adventures. I know I have the best guy in the world which makes me soooo happy and I want you to leave just as happy. | Goodbyes will never be easy
37: Im sorry I didnt reply earlier, work has been kind of full on. I miss you like crazy. I guess this is a good distraction. Things at home are different. Everyone is just quiet and its not the same as it was. My parents arent mad or anything, my mum just cried a lot when she saw me. Im glad Im in hamilton though. The bus ride back from the airport was the longest ride ever. It didnt really hit me very bad until you walked past those gates where I could no longer go. I rushed to catch the bus back to the city and I just couldnt believe you were gone. It didnt feel right not having your arms around me while I sat there. It just got worse when I got off the bus and walked through the city. I walked past all the places where we went together and it made me so sad.The bus ride to hamilton wasnt that much better. I sat next to this obese guy who had the worst body odour. He took up his seat and half of mine. I looked out at all the places we saw while we drove to rotorua. The petrol station we stopped at to get powerade and fill up the car. And it just made me cry even more. I really wished I could go back to being in the car singing and having fun with you. Last night I woke up and thought Id find you next to me. For a moment I didnt recognize where I was. I looked around and paniced which woke up my sister and my mum. Im not writing all this to make you feel sad or anything. I just want you to know I miss you more than I ever thought possible. It hurts :( I'll be alright though. We had so much fun together and we will again soon. My friends have been quite comforting. Im trying to just look forward to next time. I just want you to know how much you mean to me. I love you more than anything. I hope you get home safe. I'll get IM on my phone as soon as I can. I miss you baby. Love you always :* - sadia | BABYYYY!!! I love u sooo much. I’m back home.. playing with my new phone(: it was soooo not fair that I had to leave you, I had to force myself to walk away from you. It was the worst feeling ever. My chest just felt really heavy as I was walking away, it just didn’t feel like I was meant to leave you then, but it was kinda good that I did, because if I’d have gone back again I don’t think I’d have been able to leave you, and people were boarding the plane when I got to it. I just need to be with you right now Sad smile I am gonna add the calling thing tonight if I have enough money. I need to hear your voice to tell me it will all be okay and we’ll be together soon again. I love you :* I’ll check my email tonight more, maybe you’ll email me back cuz I really need u. Again, I love you. :* | I cant wait for the day when I dont have to say goodbye. Its so hard being apart from you. But its soo worth it, because evertually I will get to wake up next to you for the rest of our lives.
39: I love it how we act mature when we're on our own, but when we are together we do the craziest things. I love everything about you. No matter the situation you always have a smile on your face and don't stop until I do too. You have all the characteristics of an amazing best friend and on top of that you shower me with love. I think I really started living when you came into my world.
41: Will you be my valentine, for every valentines day to come? You have my heart for now and forever. Cupid really knows what he's doing. Im so lucky to have you. P.S. I love you xx
42: The story so far... | Being unable to be together has lead us to really plan our future well. We live more in the future and enjoy the present. We've shared all our hopes, dreams and aspirations. We have already decided on a lot of things we want in the future which many people decide on later in their lives. In the long term its great for our relationship because we both know what the other wants and we have a shared outlook for our lives ahead. We want 2 kids. Hopefully a boy and a girl. WHo will both love soccer as much as Devin does. They are going to inherit Devins looks and his height. I'm going to leave the disciplining all to Devin. We want to be the fun parents that we never really had. So hopefully we can manage that.
43: We want a nice house with a big garden. That Devin can landscape and make really pretty. I want a giant fish tank that is the size of a whole wall. Devin will have is own manroom probably with a bunch of overpriced soccer junk and I'll have a giant closet that will be big enough to support my shopping habbits. We can never make our mind up on what car we want. I know mines going to be black and shiny while Devins is likely to be lime green. But whatever happens, we know we are going to live happily ever after, and thats what really matters.
44: The kids :P | When I'm older and my little girl asks me who my first love was I won't have to pull out the old photo album. Im gunna be able to point across the room and say he's sitting right over there.
46: Words mean so much when I see you so little
47: && it all comes down to that one person you think about before you go to sleeeeep <3
48: And a year later | So its been a year already. A year full of love, surprises and beautiful memories I'll always cherish. It all seemed to go so fast. It felt like just yesterday I became yours. You are so special to me. I wish you knew how amazing you are. I've never met anyone quite like you. You've become a part of me, a part of my life that seems to always be perfect with you in it. I want to thank you for making me so happy. For treating me like a princess every day. For appreciating everything I do. I know how lucky I am to have you. You've changed my life forever. And all I know is I'm never letting you go. I found my soulmate so early on in life. I'm going to be the best girlfriend I can be for you and hopefully an ever better wife, its the least you deserve. I know I cant be there with you today, but theres nothing I wouldn't do to make that happen. You deserve so much Devin, and I'll do everything it takes to give you just that. I promise things will always be this way many years from now. I ran out of words to tell you how much I love you a while ago. But whenever we talk I have this really happy feeling inside and all my heart says is he's the one, the one you're going to spend forever with.
49: They are just as in love
