Her Junior year of college at University of Houston, Michelle decided to join a business organization. Little did she know that Ralph was the Vice-President and Co-Founder of this organization. It didn’t take long for them to find out that they lived in the same neighborhood, and naturally, Ralph would pick Michelle up to go places!
After months of being friends, Ralph tried to pursue Michelle. She resisted as she had already seen his “single man ways”! Finally, they went on their first official date at a small, quaint, local restaurant called Sophia’s on December 9th…which is now their anniversary date!
After five years of dating, Ralph moved to Los Angeles. A month after he relocated, he flew back to Houston, TX during Valentine’s weekend. Neither one of them were very big on Valentine’s Day, so when Ralph asked to take Michelle on a date that weekend, she didn’t think anything of it. On the drive there, he said they were picking up their friend Julio so the three of them could catch up. Continuing on with the drive, Ralph mentioned stopping by the University of Houston to check out their Alma Mater. As they walked up to the business school where they first me, Ralph got down on one knee! Julio was in on it all along and was snapping photos of us!
