Jose and I met in school at FIU CARTA Landscape Program. In 2010, we both started at the same time in the 3 year track graduate program and in the same class. In our second year, Fall semester, our studio did a class trip to the Dominican Republic. A few friends and classmates decided to go a few days earlier and stay at an all-inclusive. Slowly feelings began to rise.
Few days later we met the rest of our class in Santo Domingo. Few of us decided to go out around the city, dancing and some bar hoping. As the night goes by, Jose had asked me to dance Bachata. At that moment I decided to make my move, a kiss on his neck. (I may have gotten a little help from a few Cuba Libre’s)
Few days go by throughout the trip and the tension and connection between us grew. Finally our last night found ourselves once again dancing in Santo Domingo, middle of the dance floor we kissed for the first time. Since that night we have always been together.
