Beautiful in White
Not sure if you know this
But when we first met
I got so nervous I couldn't speak
In that very moment
I found the one and
My life had found its missing piece
What we have is timeless
My love is endless
And with this ring
I say to the world
You're my every reason
You're all that I believe in
What all my heart I mean every word

First Meet -Rokko Japanese Cuisine
By “lucky coincidence”, Beth and Gino came the same Japanese restaurant for lunch separately with their friends. They met and sat down at the same table. Gino didn't except to meet this lovely girl . He didn't shave his bear and wasn't dressed well. He looked like a geeky engineer and barely talked. His heart was beating fast. Years after, both Gino and Beth realized this coincidence was made by their good friends, (Emma) Lin Chunyong & Fuzhen --- matchmakers
Emma Lin , FuZhen and Gino organized a barbecue party at Gino's house and invited Beth for watching World Cup together. Beth dressed so pretty and brought Cotton on that day. It was the first time meeting Cotton, a white cute Bichon. Germany won the final match. But Gino didn't care about that. The only thing he cared about was Beth.
Gino reserved a romantic restaurant next to ocean cliff in San Francisco. He also ordered flowers for the dinner. Gino was so nervous, even could not look in Beth's eyes during the dinner. Finally he took courage to say he likes her and ask whether she wanted to be his girl friend. Unfortunately, Beth thought about it for a while and said she needed more time. Gino was depressed although he prepared for the worse. They still had a good talk after all.
Gino planed to give a big surprise to Beth for her birthday. He used materials to make LED Characters on the wall by himself. In addition, he tried to make a chocolate birthday cake with some rose flower decoration based on online tutorial. Beth came to Gino's house after playing tennis. She was so surprise by Gino's birthday gift. But she was still uncertain about their future.
Gino & Beth went to Reno to celebrate Christmas together with their friends. They skied in the snow mountain and played bowling in Reno. So tired but lot of fun. It was snowing. In the white Christmas day, Beth finally accepted Gino's third confession to be his girlfriend. It was the happiest moment.
Gino & Beth had a road trip to Eureka, a coast-side city. It rained many days before we arrived. The air of red wood forest was so fresh and moist. Beautiful magic forest in fog in the morning. Beth really liked this mysterious wood and fairy-tale landscape. They ate the best wood cooked chicken ever in a local Italian restaurant. And Beth bought tons of fresh Oysters from local famous oyster farm.
