How they met…

Paola and Francesco are both doctors who met in the University Hospital in Milan, Italy. Their first encounter was in an elevator, Paola as a medical student looking for her professor. Francesco was a tired resident barely hanging in there when she asked him for directions. Then they did not meet again for a whole year. Francesco left Milan to spend a few months in the U.S. working in Cleveland and upon his return to Milan he found Paola among the pre-graduates that were in his ward. He thought she was cute but had forgotten all about their first encounter in the elevator. As luck would have it, she was assigned to him for a research project and the rest is history.

The proposal…

Francesco proposed to Paola while vacationing in Malibu Beach, California. It was nearly sundown and they were sitting on the sand with whales swimming in the distance. Francesco took out a spool of green thread, with a loop at its end. He slid the loop onto Paola’s ring finger and then made the ring slide down the thread onto her finger as he asked her to marry him.
