How We Met
Ursula and Chris met in September 2008 when they were both starting law school at Gonzaga University in Spokane. Seated next to each other at a large group dinner with their new classmates, they quickly struck up a conversation and realized that not only were they both from Seattle, but they had graduated one year apart from rival high schools. Chris, who had already lived in Spokane for five years, was happy to share his local knowledge and offered to show Ursula around town. They soon became friends and became part of a close-knit group that would meet every Thursday night for dinner and drinks. After several months, Chris asked Ursula on a date, and they have been together ever since!
