096 A Love Story Like None Other – This WILL Be Mushy

Leslie Samuel Podcasts 27 Comments

Today is a very special day in the Samuel’s Family. Yep, My BEAUTIFUL, AWESOME wife is celebrating her birthday.

Another year of life. YAYYY. So, I decided to do something extra special. Some of you are going to LOVE this and some of you are going to HATE this. And that’s ok.

It’s not about blogging, it’s about something way bigger.

Warning: This episode is going to be VERY mushy, and if you aren’t into all that mushy love stuff, this isn’t the episode for you!

In this episode, I share the following:

  • Where my wife and I met
  • How we started doing music together
  • The great disappointment that I faced when she disappeared one weekend
  • How I asked her to be my girlfriend
  • The longest proposal you’ve ever heard of
  • Our new journey that we’re about to embark on

All of that, and a whole bunch of cheese in between. So I hope you enjoy, and if it’s not for you, I will see you again next week ;)

Oh, and here’s a video of her singing a Duet:

And here’s a video of her conducting

    Awesome Leslie!  I wasn’t in a Mushy mood (!), but I find that is great that you took the time to do that little tribute to the one that supports you every single day!   … oh and btw what an awesome voice she has!!! You’re a lucky man!!! ;-)

    • Leslie Samuel

      @DominicSicotte I am indeed a LUCKY, VERY LUCKY man :)

    • DominicSicotte

      @Leslie Samuel lol!!  and I am sure she can say the same thing but with the “Wo” in front of “man”!!! ;-)   Cheers!

    • Leslie Samuel

      Thanks John. You are very correct there, and that love means A TON!

  • beginningmyway

    First, happiest belated birthday wishes to you, Maurgerite! I hope that your birthday was full of smiles, laughter, joy, & happiness! Second, Leslie that is at the very top of the list on the sweetest (& original) ways to propose! This type of story is amazing, and definitely something we all need to hear more often…with the country having so many difficulties and hard times, and so many examples of love failing, it is absolutely AMAZING to hear things like this and to see just how real (& still present) true, unconditional love is today!
    I’m so excited for the two of you expecting your son! I have two sons and they are absolutely, without a doubt the most amazing, awe-inspiring, and eye-opening people in and pieces of my life. Before them, I don’t think I had ever truly experienced unconditional, true, all-encompassing love before. =) You two are in for the best blessing and most amazing journey of your lives!

    • beginningmyway

      Sorry, just noticed I typed Marguerite’s name wrong! =S Apologies… =)

    • Leslie Samuel

      @beginningmyway Not a problem for the mispelling. Happens all the time.
      Glad to hear you enjoyed the story. Yes, we are excited too. Just a few more days to go and we’ll have our little bundle of joy :D

    • beginningmyway

      @Leslie Samuel :D I’m so happy for the two of you! I just know you two are going to be amazing parents! :) He is a very lucky little boy…
