Rushing in late to the first staff meeting of the school year, a cute male teacher grabs a chair for her and sets it right next to him. Assuming he had a girlfriend, Elise did not pursue. And Alex being the kind quiet gentleman he is, admired from afar. It wasn’t until a few months later that a coworker coerced them both to a party. Thanks to intuitive coworkers and holiday parties because after that evening Elise and Alex were inseparable. I didn’t ask but I wonder if the school kids figured it out, spreading word on the playground (ha!). Kids are intuitive we know!
These two were super fun, nonstop smiling, and rolling with everything I threw at them. We crossed the Golden Gate Bridge to hike down to Kirby Cove in the Marin Headlands on the first nice winter weekend. Really looking forward to their wedding this summer and meeting their families at the Marin Headlands Center for the Arts!
I love the way he looks at her.
Gotta love the off season for a bit of stillness.
When I look at this, it just makes me think how giddy with excitement Elise feels for what lays ahead.
