And the Winner is…….

Kerri from Vancouver submitted the winning entry for our Valentine’s Day Contest. Kerri is the lucky winner of two round trip tickets between Vancouver and Qualicum! We are sure that Kerri and her Sweetheart Sam will be happy with their prize. Thanks to all who entered! Keep checking back as we will have many more contests and super savings to be had in the future!

And here is the heartwarming story:

Sam and I met in high school. I was best friends with his older brother and Sam was a couple of years younger than me. He asked me out on a date and I thought he was a little young for me and kind of dorky, but I thought, what did I have to lose?
We started dating and soon were inseparable. We literally spent every waking moment together. As time went on though, things started to get a little rocky. Young love can be so fickle, and teenage tempers can be so quick. We fought bitterly, and broke up. We went our separate ways.
In my heartbreak, I decided it was time for a change. I wanted to see more of  the world so I struck out on a year long trip to
Australia. I was lonely, the bugs were eating me alive, and the constant heat became unbearable, so I decided to return to Canada.
I moved back east to
Toronto to try and get my foot in the door of the film industry. I worked hard, partied hard, and thought of my high school love often. No matter how much time passed, I just couldn’t forget about Sam and how much I missed him.
Then one evening, after a particularly hellish day at work, I got a knock on my door. I opened it to find Sam with a sheepish grin on his face. I could not believe my eyes. Standing there in the faint glow of the porch light he looked just like I remembered him and my heart instantly started beating faster. He dropped his bags and gave me a huge hug.
Turned out that Sam had been missing me as much I as missed him. He had missed me so terribly in fact, that when he heard that I was back in Canada, he had struck out from Vancouver Island with fifty bucks to his name, and hitchhiked all the way to Toronto, just to find out if he had a shot at winning my heart back.
Well, that was ten years ago, and I am happy to say that Sam and I have been together ever since. He is my sun and moon and I will love and cherish him until my last breath and beyond.
Thanks KD Air for having such a great contest for Valentine’s day!
