She noticed him. She watched him from a distance as he entered their college class every week. And, yes, she even saw him once sit behind the sorority girl, lean in from behind her while she wasn’t paying attention, and smell her blond hair.
Julie saw this all from a distance.
Julie, what does this have to do with how we met?!, Eric indignantly asked as he cut into her story with his charming smile. At this, Julie throws her head back at laughs heavenward with much delight. Apparently, such chronological information tickles her pink. The truth of the matter was that when they finally did get the chance to get to know each other, they fell hard. Six years later, they walked along the Downtown Fullerton streets smiling, laughing…and, well, laughing. It’s what makes their relationship work so well. Laughter.
There wasn’t a time longer than four minutes when their conversation wasn’t sprinkled with amusement. Hearty laughter, giddy laughter, chronological-recollection laugher. If happiness is a sign of a healthy relationship, then Julie and Eric will be by each others’ sides for a very long time.
I can’t wait to hang out with them again in October for their wedding at the Orange County Museum of Art…judging on how much fun we had during Julie and Eric’s engagement session, I’m quite sure we’re going to have a ball at their wedding!
