How we met

It’s a long story…

It was the middle of Summer 2008.  The very first time we met was a late Friday night out in Hollywood.  Coincidentally, we were hanging out at the same club in The Roosevelt Hotel though neither of us actually saw each other until later that night.

After closing time for all bars in Los Angeles, somehow we both wound up at Orson Welles’ old house in the Hollywood Hills.  The person that Kieron was with got into an argument with the person that Victoria was with — which left us in a perfectly awkward situation.  We waited patiently on the sidelines while our friends bickered.  We talked a bit but at this time there was no attraction, no spark and no real connection between us.  We each simply wanted to get out of there and go home.

Flash forward to the following Friday night.  We both found ourselves at the same club in The Roosevelt again — it should be noted that this night would be the second and last time that either of us hung out at this bar.  At some point in the evening, Kieron noticed Victoria from across the room.  Having met the previous week under slightly absurd circumstances, he approached her to say hello.  This time, there was definitely an attraction, a spark and a connection.  Kieron was bewitched by her graceful smile and big bright eyes.  Victoria was charmed by his kind persona and sense of humor.  We talked with each other all night until Victoria had to leave.  She gave Kieron her telephone number before her departure and Kieron gave her a promise to call soon.

On August 9th 2008, Victoria and Kieron went out on their first date and they have been inseparable ever since.
