How We Met

Sometimes You Have to Meet Twice

We first met at the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk) through the scholarship hall network. We lived across the street from each other at Sellards and Battenfeld Halls and met through our mutual friends. We were never very close in college, although we did get to know each other a bit better through a Dungeons and Dragons game run by Dawson. Fast Forward to August 2018. We had been out of college for two years and Dawson had just moved into a home with two former scholarship hall friends. Those same mutual friends invited Gwen to their housewarming party and this time we hit it off right. We spent all night talking and at the end of the party we decided to go out to lunch together at the Kansas City staple "André's Suisse Confissiere" by the Plaza. Now over two years later we have bought a house that is less than a mile from the site our first date. Needless to say, we will be getting our cake from Andre's.
