We attended different high schools in the same town - Concord, CA, and initially met during our senior year. After we had both graduated from college (Vu from UC Santa Barbara and Kathleen from UC Berkeley) and moved back home, we reunited at a friend’s party. Vu asked Kathleen out on a date for sushi, and the relationship took off from there. About 8 months later, Kathleen left for graduate school in Boston, then accepted a job in Los Angeles, resulting in a 4-year long distance relationship. Vu patiently waited for her in the Bay Area, where we knew we wanted to eventually settle down. We were so excited when she found a job back in the Bay Area!
After dating for almost 7 years, we got married in the summer of 2015 in a small Catholic church. Now, we live in the city where we first met - in Concord, CA!
We love to travel and try new foods and experiences. Recently, we visited the Philippines and Vietnam, where our parents are from. We also enjoy hiking, camping, watching sports (our favorite teams are the Oakland Athletics, Oakland Raiders, and Golden State Warriors), and spending time with our loved ones. While we have many family and friends nearby, we also often travel to southern California, Las Vegas, and Hawaii to visit them.
