It was an unlikely turn of events that brought Brett half way around the world, from Singapore to Winnipeg at exactly the right moment. The same unlikely forces led him to attend a soiree. At that soiree, a tall blonde woman caught his eye and quickly stole his heart.
It was the first time they'd met, that's true. However, Brett's connection to Erin did not start there.
As their coupledom continued over days and weeks, word of Erin's very tall and handsome new love spread to family across the country. Suddenly, Erin received a surprising phone call from her aunt in British Columbia.
As it turns out, Erin's aunt already knew the new man in Erin's life. After spotting a photo of Brett and Erin together, she immediately recognized Brett.
Brett had been out at a bar during his travels in Thailand. He crossed paths with some friendly Canadians. Erin's aunt was one of them. They ended up exchanging stories and conversation. So, of all the bars and all the Canadians he could've crossed paths with, Brett would cross paths with the aunt of the woman he would marry years later.
At the time, he had no idea Erin existed. Fortunately, he made a great impression on her aunt.
Brett says he's not a man who believes in fate, but these circumstances are just too strange to ignore. On his journey home from Singapore, he didn't know what he'd find in Winnipeg. Now he believes he came home at that moment so he could find Erin and a whole world of love.
