Our Story

March 7, 2014 to the Present

I was in my sophomore year at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville while Austin was in his first year at East Tennessee State University. I had met some of Austin's friends from high school at UT and I had gone to many football games and events downtown with them. Austin saw me in a picture with the group and asked his friend who I was and if I was dating anyone. He added me on Facebook and on March 7th, 2014, he sent me a message....his first message was to tell me he thought my Golden Retriever was really pretty, he had already found the way to my heart! We immediately had so many things in common and on March 28th we went on our first date to the movies. The movie we wanted to see was sold out so we went to a different movie, which still to this day is one of the worst movies we have ever seen! Despite the terrible movie, it was a great date and we have been dating ever since! On May 7th, two months after his first message to me, he officially made me his girlfriend at the Worlds Fair Park in downtown Knoxville. Our 4 year anniversary was on May 7th, 2018 and we celebrated by spending a few days in Nashville for the Justin Timberlake concert and Nashville Predators Stanley Cup Playoff game. The day we returned home from the trip, Austin asked my parents for their blessing to marry me!
