Allie’s winning entry:

This is the cutest idea and the most awesome contest! I love Benefit!

I met my husband in 1992 in high school – recently broke up with a boyfriend and was on a “group” blond date (remember the parties of 15 going to movies and a diner back in the day?) and well my now-husband was NOT my blond date but another guy there. I was taught to never pursue a guy… but I couldn’t let this one get by! I visited him at the grocery where he worked and harassed my friends until they put in a good word for me.

Fifteen years later we have been through thick and thin – the passing of two parents, him battling and surviving cancer, him being overseas in the Navy, me at college and now almost four years of marriage!

My mom always tells how I came home from the movies that night and said, “I met the man I am going to marry!” I knew it December 27, 1992 and I know it still today! )

Looks like Allie is lucky in life and in love!  She is also the author of an incredible beauty and fashion blog called:  Wardrobe Oxygen.   Allie, please send me your contact information to:  hill jen 87 at yahoo dot com. 

Thanks to all of you for submitting your entries; they were incredible to read and honestly, I was blown away by them!

AND Many thanks to Quinn and Shannon at Benefit Cosmetics for generously sponsoring this contest.  We couldn’t have done this without your help.

    I met my husband at work. The first time our eyes met we both knew that the windows to our souls had been truely opened and that we were destined to be together.

    Wow! That must have been a powerful moment. I first met my DH when we were 7 years old. Although, we didn’t “fall in love” until much later (early 20’s). Evan said that after our first kiss he was literally shaking his entire drive home. (I think that was a good thing)!?

    Thanks for sharing Mamadd!
