In March 2008, 20 year-old Kelly Hildebrandt, a community
college student in South Florida, searched her own name on
facebook out of boredom and curiosity. To her surprise, she found
a handsome gentleman with the same name living in Lubbock, Texas.
She sent him an innocent message saying she thought it was kind of
cool they had the same name.
And so it began...
The two started chatting online, which soon turned into phone
calls. As Kelly boy became more interested in Kelly girl, the
24-year-old financial adviser arranged to visit his new
acquaintance on one condition – she obtain her certificate in
Although very nervous, Kelly girl passed this test of devotion
and the two began visiting each other frequently over eight
months. As their romance blossomed, Kelly boy put in for a
transfer with his financial firm so he could be with Kelly girl in
Florida while she finished school.
One day in December while on a beach near her home, Kelly girl
was exploring with her metal detector, when she stumbled across a
buried treasure chest. With Kelly boy watching, she opened it and
was amazed to find a diamond ring waiting inside.
Kelly Hildebrandt and Kelly Hildebrandt were married on October
11, 2009 and look forward to a wonderful life together filled with
many more fateful events.
