How did you and Eric meet?
Eric and I met while I was a sophomore at Tulane, when he moved into a house full of all of my friends, which just happened to be directly across the street from my dorm. I literally could wave to Eric from my dorm window. After two years of friendship our mutual love of Vietnamese food brought us on an accidental date to New Orleans East where we had quite the romantic picnic. And we’ve been together ever since!
How did he propose?
Eric proposed in New Orleans East on a trail in Bayou Sauvage after a delicious lunch at Dong Phuong (where we had our first accidental date). The trail was so beautiful that day. There were literally bunnies and butterflies everywhere! It was so pretty I actually said “I wish you could propose here.” Little did I know, there was a ring in his pocket! Eric says he was tempted to pop the question at that moment, but didn’t want to make me faint. He waited until we got to the most beautiful lookout point and then got down on one knee. It was perfect. We’re going to Vietnam for our honeymoon! It seemed fitting!
