We met in 2004 at The University of Hawaii at Manoa, during the week of orientation. Rachel had been locked out of her room, and while she waited for her roommate to get the RA, Alex happened to walk by and introduce himself. Since then we have been together for a little over eight years, and have been married for four of those years.
Our personalities complement each other very well. Alex being the strong and silent type, while Rachel tends to be more passionate and the main instigator of our adventures.
