Kevin and Kristen's Story

We met our freshman year of college at UC Irvine. What started out as "dorm love" quickly became true love and we've been inseparable ever since. We spent our college years having fun with friends, taking trips (to Santa Barbara and other fun spots- like Europe!) and sometimes we even studied! We discovered we have a million things in common, but the passion we both share for traveling became our focus after we graduated from college.

We decided to explore a new country and continent together. We moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina to become English teachers and travel throughout South America. We had an amazing year together exploring a different corner of the world and learning more about each other.

After Argentina, we decided to get started with a new life back in California. Kevin started working in finance at Schools First Federal Credit Union, while I became a high school English teacher at Northview High School. This new life worked well for about two years, but soon Kevin and I were hungry for new adventures. Instead of jetting off to another country again, we've decided to brave graduate school! Kevin will be going to law school and I will be working on an MFA in Creative Writing. Kevin hopes to practice law in the Orange County area and I am planning to someday combine my love of writing with my passion for teaching. Kevin and I are working together to acheive our individual dreams.

We feel incredibly lucky to have spent the past 7 years together and we're thrilled to be committing the rest of our lives to each other. We know there will be many more years of love and adventure to come.
