Our Love Story

Hello Loves,

Today officially marks exactly one month before I become Mrs. Jackson-Walji. To celebrate this day I have teamed up with Daniel Wellington to tell our love story.

Sameer and my relationship sounds like it’s straight out of a movie. High school sweethearts, 10 years of love, but like every movie, there is always a conflict before the climax.

Here is our story:

I met Sameer my first day of Canadian high school. I was so nervous. I had moved over from the UK at the tender age of 14 (thanks a lot parents). Sameer walked into English class, he was late, I thought he was a total badass… real sexy haha. After many a flirtatious winks and flippings of the bird (haha so childish) across the class room, I finally worked up the courage to text him!! Because I’m a boss ass bitch.

However this isn’t where my fairy tale starts, oh no! Sameer played it real cool, took me on a chase… a chase that lasted a little over a year!! It wasn’t until I started to move on, forget about him, that he became interested (men… typical). On New Years Eve of 2006 at the stroke of midnight… my man asked me to be his, forever. Did I think that we would be where we are now, home owners, parents of our fluffy baby, about to walk down the aisle… hell no!! Being high school sweethearts is tough! People change as they grow older, you just have to try grow together. There were numerous times we broke up during our University years, however I believe this helped us… made us stronger, as individuals and as a couple.

Although our 10 years has been sometimes confusing and difficult, I would not change one moment of it as it has shaped who we are today. Today we are strong, today we are in love… I am more in love with Sameer as I have ever been. I am so excited to be his wife.

Oh gosh guys, I’m going to be a WIFE!! Please join me in this celebration of love, by following along via social media.

    Filipa, I LOVE this post, your story is so cute and special. You don’t come across high school sweethearts too often because like you said, people change and move on, but when you’re destined to be together, it will always work! I love these photos, too, you guys compliment each other so perfectly and will be the perfect Mr & Mrs! Thanks so much for sharing your story with us beautiful and I can’t wait to see your wedding journey unfold, you are going to make for such a gorgeous bride! Have a wonderful Monday and rest of the week, beauty!

    I absolutely understand your feeling about changing the last name. When I got married 7 years ago, I changed my last name and got my husband’s last name but I felt so bad about it that (as if all those years that I’ve lived with my ‘real’ last name were lost), so last year I went back to my last name. So you have right to choose wich last name you want to have. have a lovey week.xx
