The sounds of traffic along the 405 freeway became muted once they reached the Getty Museum, perched high in the Bel Air hills. Jen and Greg strolled along the marble walkways while the wind rustled through their hair. On the lush green grass was where they studied for finals, and now, as they are preparing to graduate from UCLA and marry next month, they sat and spoke in hushed tones. Whether they were speaking about moving to Berkeley this summer (where Jen will earn her Master’s Degree from UCB), or speaking about their work with Campus Crusade for Christ, or simply whispering sweet nothings to each other, they looked happy to be there. On the emerald grass with the citrine sun behind them…they looked happy to be there, in that moment, together.
