How We Met
Travis and I met at a very unexpected time when neither of us was looking to be with anyone. I was at the Epicentre in Charlotte with my best friend celebrating her 21st birthday in January of 2015 and he was also out with his friends just hanging out. Travis had walked by our table a couple of times before I casually mentioned to my friend how cute he was, not thinking that it would lead to anything. Travis came up to our table to talk to me. We talked and danced for a while before exchanging numbers and becoming friends on Facebook lol. We became friends, hung out, and officially started dating August 14th, 2015.
How They Asked
On October 19th, Travis decided that we would go to the NC State Fair for the weekend as a little getaway, but little did I know that my life was about to change. We were in line on that Saturday night to get on the Ferris Wheel…talking and joking around like normal. Once it was our turn to get on, Travis began to act kind of nervous or suspicious lol. As the ride started he grabbed my hands and began to tell me how much he loved me and that he had been waiting on this moment for a while. He got down on one knee and pulled out a box and asked me if I would marry him! At first, I laughed uncontrollably (out of nervousness) but then I said yes and was beyond excited for this next chapter in our lives. I went on the ride a girlfriend and came back down a fiancé. Travis and I have been through a lot and he has been with me through one of my toughest times which was the loss of my daddy in February of 2018. I can’t thank him enough for loving me and being here for me and my mom through our hardest time. I cannot wait to marry my best friend and spend the rest of forever with him!
