How We Met

Incase y’all haven’t noticed from my little comments here and there, I am a huge hopeless romantic. I am all about some rom-coms, watching the forbidden love play out in a television series, and those songs where people pour their hearts out. What’s the better than all of that though? Hearing real life love stories. Let’s be real, those movie, television, and song love stories are incredible but for the most part they aren’t real! So hopefully y’all are like me because today I’m sharing how we met πŸ™‚ where our love story began and when I fell in love with this incredible man.

How We Met, Engaged, I Said Yes, Bride To Be

Joshua and I both attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where we both majored in Marketing. My roommate, Erica Watts, introduced us our junior year while the two were working on a group project. We later found out we had multiple classes together and ended up working on a couple group projects together as well. He was the guy two rows down who always wore a baseball cap (and I secretly thought was cute but had a boyfriend at the time). We graduated in 2012 and continued to keep in touch here and there for the next year. (The above photo is from when we were in college and simply friends. We look like such babies!!)

I’m not really sure how this came about but we made plans to get together for a Jason Aldean concert and have a couple of our friends tag along. A week before the concert me and a girlfriend had planned to go to a John Mayer concert. Little did I know her boyfriend was coming along as well. Not wanting to be the third wheel, yet again, I decided to invite Joshua. It was a Wednesday night {aka work night} and he wasn’t the biggest fan {aka not a fan} of John Mayer but he decided to save me from my third wheel predicament.

We rode together and met my friends for a drink prior. The second we walked into the restaurant I got all nervous {insert blushing emoji}. Why? I had no idea! I’d hung out with this guy multiple times, worked on class projects with him, and been friends for two plus years. The nerves only increased once we arrived at the concert. Are we going to dance together? How ridiculous do I look belting out Why Georgia?

Well we did dance. Not only did I sing but Joshua sang the two songs he did know right to me πŸ™‚ and yes had our first kiss. From there our summer was filled with concerts, UNCC football games, and lake days. The summer wrapped up with me saying I think your Facebook status is incorrect, Joshua laughing at my silly way of saying you’re mine and replying back with I think yours is too.
