How We Met

We met through a mutual friend of mine in law school. Several weeks before we met, my friend told me she thought I was cute, so I started posting a few more pictures of myself hoping she would see my photos. Little did I know she actually was looking at my pictures.

After about a month, I grew the courage to just send her a simple message via Instagram in the morning. At around 8 pm, she responded and we messaged back and forth for four hours. It was an instant click.

How He Asked

For Christmas this year, I wanted to do something different. A material gift is too replaced or forgotten, so I told her this year I wanted to give her a better gift, one that she will not replace or forget because it was a trip where we would have fun and have great memories. We both have never been to Paris, let alone Europe, so it was very neat.
