It all started at Tennessee Tech in Cookeville, TN. Sean and I became friends through other friends. I thought of him as the “music guy” because he would drive around campus with music (with no words) blasting in the Nissan. We began dating on August 1, 2002. My friends and I had came to Cotton Eyed Joe’s for one final whoo-ra before I moved to Chattanooga for PT school. Sean seemed to be the only one that cared I was leaving, and that is when I saw him in a different light. And who could forget THE PIZZA. We all know I love to eat, but that was the best pizza from bellacino’s ever!!! When we went out to Cotton Eyed Joe’s, Sean played hard to get and that made me even more curious about him
Later after dancing the night away, we decided to keep talking even when I moved to Chatt and just take it one day at a time. I don’t think either one of us, saw wedding bells ringing in our future on that night, but soon we would know. Well through many up and downs, being hours away, sacrifices, and much more craziness, we are still together and going strong. In September 2006, Sean moved to Georgia, which would be the first time we would be in the same zip code for longer than a week since beginning to date in 2002. It was suprisingly a smooth transition and it has been a wonderful experience. It is wonderful to have him here.
On March 1, 2008, Sean finally popped the question!!! It was in Coolidge Park in Chattanooga, TN. He got down on one knee, told me I was his best friend, some more of the sweetest things I have ever heard, and then asked me to be his wife and spend the rest of my life with him. I forgot to say yes, because I was too busy crying and hugging him. Then he reminded me and I said yes, yes, yes, yes!!!! It was perfect and my ring is gorgeous.
On October 4, 2008, we were married in Morristown, TN. The wedding was beautiful and our honeymoon on the cruise was awesome. Up to this point, we have truly had an amazing ride. I can truly say that I married my best friend!!! Stay tuned for more updates on our life together….
