How We Met

We met in January of 2011 in college, I went to Washington State University, he went to University of Idaho. Not many people know this, but WSU and U of I are only 8 miles apart! So we met at a party through mutual friends. I wasn’t interested in a relationship at the time, but Taylor somehow found my phone number, and after about 6 weeks of him texting and calling me every single day since the day we met, I finally agreed to hang out with him… But, just as friends! Six months later and countless rejections, I finally agreed to be his girlfriend and I am SO happy he never gave up!

How He Asked

Four and a half years later, Taylor had a surprise up his sleeve. It was Friday right before Super Bowl 49, when it was held here in Phoenix! So, of course I was super excited for this weekend for months leading up to it! Taylor took me out to dinner at a very nice restaurant called Roy’s at the J.W. Marriott at Desert Ridge. After dinner we walked out to the grounds of the hotel to explore, we came to a beautiful lit up waterfall, and that’s when he got down on one knee! It was all a blur after that! But, around the corner came both of our parents. His parents live in Arizona, but he had mine fly down from Washington! I was so surprised and overwhelmed with love and excitement! It was the best weekend of my life thus far. I can’t wait to marry him in just a few short weeks, on April 2nd, here in Arizona!
