Our story began in summer 2010 – at the same school where we both studied
I was entering my second-year while Illy was a new student starting her freshman year. We picked one of the most uncommon, least-populated majors – Applied Mathematics, which dramatically increased the likelihood of our paths to cross. After we introduced ourselves over a warm handshake, it didn’t take long, however, to turn the senior-junior relationship into a growing seed of love.
Throughout the rest of the semester, we got to know each other more (in our own awkward way), joined the same organization and I handpicked her to be part of my team. After working together, we became close friend and I knew I had found someone special. It wasn’t until several months later when I followed my heart and asked her out. She agreed. Since then, we began dating – accompanied by our favourite meals, hundreds of movies, and Disney’s performance we’ve watched together. The rest as they say (no matter how cheesy it is), is history.
In the past 7 years, we’ve been through ups and downs, transitioning between different stages of life, and supporting each other. Looking forward, we are excited to experience another stage of relationship, travel to far flung places, and discover more beautiful things life has to offer together.
