Clay and Justyce met through mutual friends their JR year of high school in 2013. They were young high school basketball players, Clay (Hope High School) & Justyce (Arkansas High School), always playing around like they were already together. During their senior year of high school, they lost contact but they’d always notice each other because with them having the same birthday. Mutual friends would always mention them on birthday post together, so they’d always have those vivid memories they’ve shared once before. Clay reached out to Justyce during the end of December of 2020 and since then, the two were inseparable. Clay knew right then, within the first few months of their rekindle that he wanted Justyce to be his forever love. They didn’t know back then they were actually going to be each other’s forever love stories.
When Clay and Justyce rekindled their friendship, they shared things to each other about growth. Justyce was a firm believer in accomplishing her goals, that’s one thing Clay has loved about her. They shared future endeavors with one another. Once the two started spending more and more time with each other, started sharing more and more emotions, Clay knew then Justyce was the one. Their birthdays were coming up soon and Clay wanted to throw a “party” for the two to celebrate each other and to get the families to know one another. So Justyce honestly believed him and started planning a party for the two, not knowing it was their surprise engagement party. It was definitely a day to remember.
