Road trips are so fun! I usually think they are best experienced with beef jerky and peanut butter M&M’s but when I go to a destination location with my clients, my favorite thing is actually something different – it is the conversation along the way. I love hearing their love story and how they came to be as a couple. This couple was a very special couple to catch up with because I met both of them as freshmen at college! And I knew them both before they even knew each other!! I remember when Adrian made a special sign to ask Nettie “Will you be my girlfriend?” I got to watch as they went from acquaintances to friends to lovers. Little did they know that they would become an answer to each other’s prayer. Adrian remembers taking a long prayerful and contemplative walk at night. He felt like God put a special thoughts on his heart to reassure him that his future wife would have eyes that shone like the stars and would be more beautiful than the entire night night sky.
This beautiful couple has been in a relationship for five years. They describe themselves as having grown up together. They have laughed together, cried together and learned all of each other’s unique and special differences.
Nettie and Adrian, it was a true blast to hang out. I am so excited for your future together and so honored to have seen its inception. I know that you’ve had a wonderful adventure so far. The very best adventures lie ahead. May these memories always be a special reminder of this special season — the time when you were betrothed to the one who will be your forever someone. Lots of love to you both!!
