It all started within Austin's first 24 hours on Hinge as a part of a bet with a friend and when Abby had time off because of her eye surgery. He responded to a picture of her doing a Spider-Man pose in Avengers Campus at California Adventure. After she replied, their conversation quickly consisted of messages that filled up both of their phone screens. They met in person within a week of chatting online and stayed (unbeknownst to them for 7 hours of great conversation) until the coffee shop was closing (which would become a trend). Austin knew from that day as long as she liked him, he would marry this girl. Abby was still a bit dazed and had no idea what God had in store for them, but secretly hoped. She did in fact like him, and the Lord fulfilled those hopes, just as He has blessed them both more than they could ever ask or dream since then.
