We first met in middle school at a church lock-in. Staying friends, in 9th grade he asked me to go to the school dance with him and of course I said yes ! We stayed friends throughout high school and went our separate ways once we graduated. Somehow fate brought us back together in 2018 and he asked me to be his girlfriend. In November 2021, we found out we were pregnant with our baby girl. Scarlett was born on July 3, 2022, changing our whole world and putting life into perspective. A month later on August 13th, we were on first vacation as a family at Smith Mountain Lake. Austin asked if I want to go fishing and while we were on the boat he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him !
