After a year of knowing “of” each other, but not officially meeting, Graham finally put together a name to a face one day at work while doing our unit's property inventory. After a few weeks of exchanging niceties, Graham schemed with our good friends to orchestrate a game night on July 2, 2021. A few parking lot walks at work later and a newspaper worthy first date (see the photo below), the rest is history! ... In February 2023, Graham again schemed a trip to visit family down in Oak Island, North Carolina for a long weekend. On February 19th he proposed in Southport, a place very dear to Lauren, to cap off a wonderful weekend. We couldn’t be more thankful that God orchestrated our lives to come together, and are excited to see what else He has in store for us!
