Love To Love You #L2LU

Updated: Feb 13

#L2LU Allison + Simon

How did you meet? Simon and I met while backpacking around Europe. We happened to be staying at the same hostel in Barcelona and on the 2nd night our two groups ended up going out to a club together. Simon and I hit it off straight away and a brief 36 hrs after meeting I was off to our next destination, not sure if we'd ever see each other again. Six months, many Facebook messages and face times later I went to visit him in Sydney for 3 weeks. It was one of the best times in my life and we both knew there was something special between us. Simon then came to visit me in Toronto a few months later at which point I decided to move in with him in Sydney. The rest is history!

What was the first thing you noticed about your partner?

Allison: The first thing I noticed about Simon was how intelligent he was. I'm always in awe of how clever he is and it was very apparent from the beginning! Also his lovely blue eyes :)

Simon: Looks of course! Also I could tell straight away that she was kind, fun and easy- going.

What is the best quality your partner possesses?

Allison: Simons best qualities, in my opinion, are how organised and caring he is. One example is: as a hairdresser I work later in the evening and he is always home before me, so every night I come home to a home-cooked meal, complete with candlelight!

Simon: She makes me laugh, which I think is such an important and rare quality to have!

Tell me something more :)

Allison: Simon makes me feel very loved and protected, I know anything life throws at us we always get through it together. We also have a lot of fun together, he truly is my best friend! Simon: I feel that I can just be myself around her. She makes me feel at ease no matter how stressful life gets. She is my best friend.
