Shanti and Sophia met while they were attending a conference in Oakland, California. They both are politically passionate and shared an immediate connection! Sophia was already living in the Bay Area, and Shanti had traveled all the way from Florida to attend this conference.
While they were surrounded by fellow friends and activists, it was as if everyone around them disappeared, and they were in a bubble of their own, trying to learn as much about one another as possible in a short time. The weekend-long conference ended and Shanti returned to Florida; Sophia returned back to her daily life. But it was clear to both of them that they wanted to see one another again, AND SOON!
One trip to see one another led to another ... and another, and another! Very early on they knew they wanted to spend their lives together, but they wanted to be mindful and know one another well, which started by creating a strong foundation before they made any big moves. Two years of lots of visits, planning, wishing and waiting, it was time for someone to make a move. With the support and blessing of her friends and family who had grown so fond of Shanti, Sophia packed up her life and moved to Florida in 2015. They were married in 2016, bought a home, and now look forward to building a family together!
