Tyler had just finished her junior year at Oakland University and Thomas was in Michigan for the summer playing baseball on the Utica Unicorns. Their story started where all the great Greater Detroit love stories start - CoJos, or "Coyote Joe's" if you want to be more formal. Thomas met Tylers beloved dog, Boomer, and it took off from there. I mean, who wouldnt want to spend all of their free time with Boomer? Thomas had to go back to his home state of Virginia and they decided to try long distance to see how it would work. 4 long years later, Thomas finally moved down to Raleigh, NC where Tyler had already been living for 3 years. 7 years later, they are still living in Raleigh with their 2 kids (dogs) Kai and Callie. They have been through many life changes together and cannot wait to begin their lives forever in the presence of their favorite people.
