Marco and I first met about 11 years ago. I was 15 at the time and Marco 18. He came to watch one of my netball games at school. He already liked me 11 years ago, but back then I wasn’t interested. Six years later, a mutual friend of ours along with his sister, took it upon themselves to play Cupid. This time it worked! Our timing might not have been right at the beginning, but it all worked out perfectly in the end!
We were standing in front of the San Miniato al Monte in Florence, Italy. With Florence spread out at our feet. It was the 11th of September 2015. With the beautiful picturesque Florence as witness, Marco asked me to marry him!
