How We Met
Justin and I met in history class freshmen year of high school. I knew from the moment I saw him that I wanted to talk to the cute baseball player from history class. Finally, on December 10th, 2010 Justin asked me to be his girlfriend, and the rest was history (get it, because of history class?). 8 years later, we have gone through so much life, laughter, and love together. Between 5 years of distance dating, starting and finishing college, and a big move across the country together, there is no one else I would choose to be by my side through it all.
how they asked
On May 12th, 2018 I graduated from the University of Oklahoma. It was such a great morning getting to visit with classmates and professors one last time before we all received our diplomas and were off to our new adventures. I had so many family members come to share this moment with me from out of town and I was just overflowing with joy. I was making my way around everyone trying to make sure I got pictures with every single person. Then, finally, I realized I hadn’t yet taken a photo with Justin. We were taking our pictures and then the next thing I know he was down on one knee asking me to spend forever with him (also, with the most beautiful ring I might add). I was so surprised/shocked I just stood there in awe trying to process that this was actually happening! I couldn’t have dreamt of a better day, surrounded by both of our families and loved ones. Now, 8 years later and I get to marry my best friend!!!
