With an estimated population of 1,394,928, San Diego is the eighth-largest city in the United States. They were each there for different reasons, Kristina’s reason only lasting the weekend. They could have met different people. They could have been hanging out in different bars. A million factors could have influenced them never meeting each other in such a large city, in such a short window of time…

When I first heard their love story, I was practically in tears because of how cute it was. I could feel how excited Ana Lucia was sharing a bit of their story.

And I couldn’t help but notice the way he held her hand and the way she rested her head on his shoulder… it was as if they fit perfectly together.

And they even have an amazing keepsake of HOW he proposed, which I’ll explain in a bit.

I have many favorite poets that I turn to when I need some general life inspiration, but Khalil Gibran always seems to tug at my heart strings first. Perhaps it’s because it brings back nostalgic memories of reading Khalil Gibran poetry with my best friend, Lauren, when she was living in Flagstaff, or because his words always seem to resonate with what I’m processing through at that particular time that I’m reading something of his. Whatever the case, when I was with Rox and Fer for their session, getting to know their personalities and a bit of their story reminded me of one of Gibran’s poems and I would like to share that today.
