How We Met

We like to say we made online dating cool before it was actually cool! It all began while Dallas was serving in the Marine Corps and I was attending Texas A&M University. He messaged me on Facebook in June of 2010 and I like to tease him that the only reason I responded was because I was having a boring summer. He claims that I asked for his number first to start talking on a regular basis, but I remember it differently. :-) Oddly enough, we soon realized we were both from the same hometown and had many mutual friends. Skype consumed our lives over the next few months as he was stationed in California and I was back home in Texas.

We eventually met in person over Thanksgiving break and the rest is history! We have been dating for almost six years now and could not be more in love! We cannot wait to tie the knot.

How He Asked

My now fiancé (still get butterflies seeing that written :-D) proposed to me just a few months ago! Dallas planned a surprise trip to Napa Valley, CA (a destination that has been on our bucket list forever) and popped the question at a beautiful vineyard.

He flew my baby sister out (who happens to be a professional photographer) to photograph the whole thing so that was another surprise in itself. Last but not least, when we arrived at dinner, my family (all from Texas) was waiting for me and needless to say, there were a lot of tears! We are so excited to marry one another and follow down the path God has planned out for us!
