We met in an accounting evening class in a small college in a tiny town that has the nickname “CoMo,” which stands for Columbia, Missouri. I would have never thought the person whom I shared the textbook with once that day would become my lifetime partner.
We are both from Vietnam and both have similar challenges adapting to life here in the States. You would have thought that would make us get along so well that we would have no conflict at all. However, reality struck us hard. Like any other couple we fight, we don’t communicate well with each other, we made mistakes, we separated, we survived a four-month long-distance relationship, we got married, we fought again and again, we lost hope, we tried to mend things, we learned from our mistakes, and we have been loving each other more than ever since.
Orlando, Florida has always been a destination on our bucket list, and thanks to the dirt cheap air tickets, we were able to check it off the list. During the trip, I got to reunite with my wonderful high school friend, Sally, who is a talented photographer. She did an amazing job capturing the real emotions of a couple celebrating their second anniversary. Her work wowed us, and we can’t wait to print these photos and hang them in our house.
