They met in 2010, or should I say, their love story began in 2010. On their first day of class at The University of Portland. What was only a catch of an eye and a sweet smile, would blossom into the kind of love you dream of in romcoms. Except their love is based off no movie, but real genuine connection.
Today I turn four. And the journey will keep speeding on from here. Business anniversaries seem a little silly for me to celebrate. I'll admit, I even forgot about it last year until it had passed! I begin to question the celebration with something like 'I'll celebrate when I've hit a milestone' or 'I'll celebrate when I've done something big'. Silly, right?
I'm often asked what I have in mind for my own wedding day. "You see a lot of weddings, and probably know exactly what you want, right?" The truth is, I really don't know! Sure, there are some things I'd love to make sure I include, but I don't really have an actual plan. Where would I get married? Would it be small or big? What time of the year would it be? Who would I hire to be MY photographer?
Karl Cristie was living in San Diego, California as a nurse, and Joseph was doing his optometry rotation at the site where KC's roommate works. They met during Balboa Park's December Nights through KC's roommate, and spent the majority of that night getting to know each other.
Their first date was over breakfast. Karl Cristie was on her way to Los Angeles when she called Joe asking if he wanted to have breakfast. He agreed, even though he had already eaten. Karl Cristie recalls it was casual, the way a morning date should be. After finishing up their meal, they decided to stretch the impromptu date a little longer over at a sports bar to watch a football game. The date was as relaxed and simple, and absolutely perfect for the both of them.
