Drew & I met through a mutual friend back in 2013. Drew was splitting his time between Houston and Pennsylvania while working as an engineer at Chevron. I was about to start dental hygiene school. Our lives were very busy and on two different paths at the time. Fate brought us back together in 2016 when we bumped into each other because of another mutual friend. Drew asked me on a date to see the Turnpike Troubadours play downtown, and the rest is history.

Drew and his family own a condo in Destin, Florida at Jetty East. We travel there a few times a year and it’s such a beautiful place. We made a short trip for the 4th of July this year, but Drew had planned to celebrate more than just Indepence Day that weekend. Drew and I got dressed up for a nice dinner on July 5th. Before dinner, he convinced me that we needed to go down to the beach to take pictures of the “sea turtle eggs”. He was very convincing. Once we made it down to the beach at sunset, he informed me that there were no sea turtles as he dropped down to one knee. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with my best friend!
