How We Met

Hoan & I met at a conference 3 years ago in Dallas, TX. I was coordinating speakers for the conference and Hoan had been selected as one of our worksiêu thị speakers. I had conversed with his assistant via gmail & did my brief google tìm kiếm on him prior khổng lồ the conference to lớn ensure he was a good fit, I saw a few pictures of hyên ổn & didn’t really think much of it. Conference day came & I was running around frantically in my flip flops that morning ensuring everything was in place. Somehow, I ended up in the lobby at the exact same moment Hoan walked inkhổng lồ the khách sạn. I remember seeing hlặng and thinking, omg Hoan is here… this is slightly embarrassing where is the volunteer that was supposed to lớn meet hyên here?!


I did my best to lớn act nonchalant & said, “oh my gosh, hi Hoan!” và I remember him leaning down, putting his bags down on the floor, & as he heard my voice knelt up looking at me and dashed his charming smile my way và said hello. In that moment, I was totally caught off guard and thought woah, he is way better looking in real life. I led hlặng to the registration table and showed hyên where to lớn place his belongings all the while trying to make casual small talk. As we parted ways that morning I couldn’t help but think oh thank God I was there lớn greet hlặng because that would have looked poorly on our organization if he had been standing there not knowing where lớn go.

But in addition khổng lồ that, I was sort of taken baông chồng by how charming he really is.


how they asked

The day of the proposal I was still jet lagged from my red eye flight into Minneapolis but also stressed because I had an online presentation for class that evening và I had found out earlier that my slides had gotten deleted so I was just really anxious khổng lồ get home page. My best frikết thúc Ann and I had gotten a late lunch that day & I told her I should probably get home page early khổng lồ work on my presentation so after a little stalling on her end she said “ok, but before we go trang chính can we quichồng run an errand? I have khổng lồ go pick up tickets at the Orpheum Theatre.” I said, “sure” & we were on our way lớn downtown.


She decided to park in this parking lot near the Orpheum & I thought… hmm this looks oddly familiar. And as we drove sầu in và parked, I looked up and said, “oh hey this is where Hoan và I had the wall date!” And she was like, “oh yeah?” And I was like, “…yeah!!” Once the car came khổng lồ a stop I told her I would sit in the oto and wait for her since it was sprinkling out và she said, “oh… I need two people khổng lồ piông xã them up.” In my head, I was thinking, that’s odd… I’ve never heard of that before. I noticed she grabbed an umbrella và walked over to my passenger car side & got me out of the oto. I got out and was still thinking, this is so weird that she is having me go piông xã up tickets with her. As we continue bickering, all of a sudden Ann goes, “ugh, just look over there” So then I look over and there is Hoan standing under an umbrella in front of a “Before I die” wall and I literally just bawled my eyes out.

In that moment, it felt like time just stood still because I was completely floored! I had a variety of different emotions run through me from shoông xã, khổng lồ guilt, lớn feeling so incredibly loved. I couldn’t believe he had been working on all of this without my knowledge! I also couldn’t believe sầu it was me who was getting proposed to… It’s like you dream of it as a child, you think about it growing up và wonder what your proposal would look lượt thích & here it was happening right before my eyes. It’s a good thing it got documented because looking back now it felt like such a whirlwind.. but the most dreamy, thoughtful, lãng mạn whirlwinds of all time :)
