the day i met my prince charming

Four years ago, I was a college senior getting ready for the Virginia Tech spring game. It is an annual tradition to tailgate and enjoy the spring weather while anxiously awaiting the fall football season. The small town of Blacksburg, VA was flooded with fans! There were also several alumni events held that weekend. I ran into old friends that had graduated and met several new ones…. including Chris! He was in a torn t-shirt and jeans ( while it was 90 degrees outside) and didn’t shower that entire weekend…. But man, something clicked!

He returned back to DC that Sunday to the “real world”. We exchanged contacts and began talking on the phone daily from across the state. He came back for my college graduation a few weeks later. I thought he would run for the hills at this point…  instead he met my parents, went to the diploma ceremony and stood by my side the entire way. I am glad he hasn’t left since then! I am the luckiest girl!

Time has sure flown by, but I wouldn’t change a single second! Since that sunny day in Blacksburg, we have fallen in love and begun our lives together! We purchased a home and got married! We started our little family together with the cutest puppy, Laney! She is named after our alma mater’s football stadium… so we can always remember how we met!

            I LOVE these two!


And last but not least, our favorite photo from our wedding day by the INCREDIBLE Kristen Gardner!


Thank you Chris for the ride…. It’s only just begun! I am honored to be your wife and sidekick in life!
