How We Met
Garrett and I met while in college at the University of Mount Olive, and we clicked instantly. We were paired to represent our department for an event and we spent the entire day laughing and getting to know each other- I knew he was special when he chose to listen to oldies on the radio first thing in the morning! Within a couple of months of developing a friendship and sharing our testimonies with each other, we knew God had brought us together for a reason.
How They Asked
Garrett and I live a couple of hours away from each other right now, and we planned to both drive-in and meet at my parents’ house to hang out with my family for the weekend. We love to go star watching in my home town, there are hardly any lights and the view is breathtaking! That Friday night would have been the anniversary of when we met, and we wanted to spend it together watching the stars go by. However, God had other plans! We were rained out and ended up just spending time with my parents.
The next day, we embarked on a day trip we had been planning to take for most of our relationship and decided to end the day stargazing since we were rained out the night before. We had the most wonderful day! I told Garrett several times throughout the day that I couldn’t possibly imagine it getting any better.
After the best day I’ve ever had, we drove out into the country to get ready and see some stars. We laid the blankets down, and I turned around to take off my shoes. When I turned back to Garrett, he was on one knee! At first, I thought he was unlacing his boots- but he had a ring in his hand. He asked me to be his wife, I said yes, and the rest is history! I couldn’t be more thankful for God bringing this man into my life, and I am so excited to see what our future holds.
