Mayra & Wes

If this is how it feels to win the lottery, then HOLY MOLY! This is what Mayra said as we were walking down Buffalo Bayou Park in Houston Texas.

Wes and Mayra met downtown at a place called the Pastry War.  It was really by chance as Wes is not originally from the U.S., he is from Cape Town, South Africa. He approached Mayra and said “hi,” and when Mayra heard it is a beautiful accent, she instantly felt a connection. They enjoyed an evening of bar-hopping together and exchanged numbers; the rest is history!

What makes their relationship so special was how opposites attract. 

Wes is adventurous, and Mayra claims she is not! He pushed her to grow in this aspect. He loves nature, and she loves shopping, when they go on vacation, they find a way to balance what they both love. The last vacation they went on was in Costa Rica. Mayra was committed to mountain bike, and let’s just say there were a lot of tears and screams as she went up and down the mountain. She also have some battle scars to prove and guess what? She did it.  She doesn’t think she has ever been so scared in her life, but Mayra felt so accomplished after we did it! “I love that he pushes me to experience things that I would generally stay away from; it keeps it lively and fun!”

In that same trip, Wes proposed

“The same trip I swear I almost lost my life on the mountain. I had NO CLUE, like NO CLUE!” Mayra said,   She had stopped stressing about getting married and put her faith in God.  The proposal was a beautiful evening with dinner on the beach right after sunset, Wes proposed in the form of her favorite dessert, the cake said: “Will you marry me!” Mayra felt an instant surprise and joy, a feeling she will never forget.
