Chad and I met in 2010, when I was 19 years old and Chad was 21 years old. We lived across the hall from each other at our apartment complex, at Texas State University. We saw each other often but we didn’t officially meet until midway through that semester. After I had a fun night out with the girls, we had just enough courage to knock on the door of our neighbors across the hall to see if they wanted to continue the party with us... They did! From that day on Chad and I have been inseparable, and the rest is history!! We have been on many trips and adventures throughout the years since, but the best day so far was March 24th, 2018 when Chad proposed. Chad planned it all out on his own and I was so proud of him, I can't believe I didn't even get an idea of what was going on. He asked if we wanted to take Tex to Hermann Park to walk around and explore. He had my sister and her dog Cody join us, she ended up talking me into wearing cute clothes (I still had no idea). We walked around the park for a while and later found a place to take pictures (Chad planned this place to "stumble upon") and he asked my sister to take a picture of us two and Tex in front of the water. After the picture, he grabbed my hand and got down on one knee and had the most romantic/beautiful speech prepared and I couldn't believe what was happening. He then asked and I of course said YES! We then went to Karbach Brewery where he had my family and closest friends waiting to celebrate!! It was a perfect day!!
