How We Met
Our story begins 5 years ago when our two best friends introduced us at a college party. Only a month after we met Matt asked me to be his “official girlfriend” and sealed the deal with a HIGH FIVE instead of a kiss! We still laugh about that to this day! After two years of dating I graduated from the University of Missouri early, moved to Kansas City, MO and we began our long distance relationship. We were only 2 hours away at this point but it really tested us as a couple. Once Matt graduated he moved to Huntington, WV to start Physical Therapy School at Marshall University and I moved to Arkansas for a new job. This made us 800 miles and a 12 hour drive away from each other. Over the next 3 years we cherished our time spent together during his breaks in school. Matt graduated in May 2019 and moved to Dallas, TX for a job. We are counting down the days until our wedding and the day we will finally live together in the same city!
How They Asked
New Years weekend 2018 Matt moved to Arkansas to finish his last clinical for school and get to be back in the same city as me for 15 weeks! (Not a long time but we will take it!). We celebrated New Years Eve at my families house on Table Rock Lake. That night I got a phone call from Matt that our boat lift was broken and I had to come down to the dock at once with the tool box! I drove down and Matt was standing at the end of the dock with our dogs by his side. When I reached the end of the dock he dropped to his knee and proposed! And Yes we did high five to seal the deal! I cant wait for our Wedding day to high five once again to devote the rest of our lives together!
