We met in a history class in college, over 5 years ago. We've been dating for 4 1/2, nearly 3 years of which was long distance. After graduation, Arturo moved across the country to be with Chelsea while she was in grad school, but eventually returned home when he was unable to find a job through OPT. The following year, Chelsea traveled to Guatemala for 9 months where she taught English. During the last year and a half, we've shared holiday visits, but it's always been too short and bittersweet. We're been talking about marriage for the last year or so, but the official engagement happened in January 2009 in Guatemala. We're a bit overwhelmed by the process!
