Along with her photo submission, Melissa wrote:
This is my lovely husband and I! We were married in 2000 and despite being only 20 years old when we got married, we have been married for 12 years. Valentines Day will be spent apart this year sadly because my love is serving our country overseas at this time. He surprised me and came home for Christmas so that was wonderful! Due to my husband being in the Air Force, we have been apart for so many holidays including Christmas, birthdays, Valentine's Day, anniversaries but despite all that we still manage to make it work and show love to one another! I love him and he is my SOUL MATE and my own personal HERO!!
The winning couple will receive:
- Lola's Kitchen & Wine Bar, $50 gift card
- Joseph Christoper Salon, Couples Massage ($200 value)
- European Wax Center/Lawrence, $100 voucher for his/her waxing sessions (valid at Lawrence location only)
- Islanders, 2 tickets, (Value approximately $230)
Thank you to these Patch advertisers and local businesses for donating these prizes.
Congratulations to Melissa and Takeem!
