DUYEN + KY
Oh, be still my freaking heart!!! Besides my love for Joshua Tree National Park, I got to meet two genuine, kind-hearted people who know how to have a good time. Not to mention, they insisted on getting me one of my favorite drinks from Starbucks before we headed out, major brownie points 😉 No, but really, my favorite part of the whole night with them is getting to see how they love each other. Genuine, raw, real freaking love. I cried tears of happiness on the way home.
Duyen + Ky are the epitome of true, passionate love – they share a playful bond that I have never seen before. Ky has jokes for days and can make Duyen laugh in an instant. Duyen also shared that she loves Ky’s chivalrous ways. I saw it myself – Ky is a true gentleman, opening car doors, leading her through fields of cacti, making sure she was taken care of the entire time. And Duyen. Geez, this woman has so much spirit. She cares and loves for Ky in every which way. She and Ky, together, are adventurous + hilarious! They shared one of their favorite memories with me: breaking into an abandoned building in LA to see the city lights twinkling + sharing that moment together. That was date #2, by the way. Earlier in the year, Ky brought Duyen back to another lookout in LA and ended up proposing there (after a few failed attempts). It goes to show the perfect moments are sometimes the ones unplanned<3
Can we PAUSE for a moment and talk about this ring?! Ok. Duyen is a girl after my own hear – she’s not a gal who pines over diamonds, but rather, the natural beauty in this world. Ky found the perfect opal ring to reflect Duyen’s personality! Something crazy happened shortly after they got engaged – the waves at the ocean pulled Duyen’s ring right off her finger!!! Obviously devastated, Ky found a retired guy who goes out to find treasures in the ocean – and through him, Duyen + Ky were able to get this pretty little gem back!
too good not to share twice!!!
My heart is still exploding. Gah! Duyen + Ky, much love to both of you <3
