People who are in love and happy makes the people around them and the whole world happy :) Well, at least that's how I feel. They remind me that having someone is a good thing. He looks at her and his eyes light up, always wanting to please her and protect her. And she returns his gaze with such passion, warmth and unconditional love that words are no longer necessary. A great relationship is where one tries to outdo the other in catering to his/her needs. There is no holding back; where the walls of fear, of vulnerability, of "self" are non-existent and it is all about GIVING. It's is a beautiful thing. Perhaps, someday I will be ready for this kind of love, and if and when the right man comes along... But for now, I am so happy for Haidan and Vassili and so glad that in this crazy world, their friendship has led them to grow towards each other and eventually find themselves inseparable.
We took their engagement photos along University Avenue in downtown Palo Alto. We stopped by Cafe Venetia, for some decadent hot chocolate, rich espresso and to die for cappuccino - definitely a must place to visit when in downtown Palo Alto! Then we finished their engagement photo session on the beautiful grounds of Stanford University .
