It All Began With A Tweet
Don’t you just love a romance that begins with a chance encounter? Lovebirds turned newlyweds Tahira and Calvet first met while attending Morgan State University but they were only causal acquaintances. It wasn’t until 10 years later, when they randomly reconnected at a popular restaurant, that sparks really began to fly. While Tahira was dining with a friend at Busboys and Poets, she noticed a tweet from Calvet saying he was dining there with his family. She replied telling him she was sitting right nearby. He walked over to make small talk, but eventually went back to his table. After dinner and a few rounds of drinks, Tahira asked for the bill. To her surprise Calvet had already paid their tab. She was majorly impressed. And the rest, as they say, is history.
