Katie and TJ first met because of Katie’s grandma…we love this story!! TJ was friends with Katie’s cousin and that was the catalyst for their first date. He saw a picture of Katie at her grandma’s house and asked if he could have her number. Grandma was a big TJ fan, so she encouraged Katie to go out with him. They got along really well from the beginning. They could talk for hours!! Within the first couple of weeks of their relationship, TJ told Katie he was going to marry her one day…8 years later, here they are.
From TJ: “Katie is the most nurturing and caring person that I could have met. She gets my sense of humor, we don’t get bored of one another, and she is just the best. I literally wouldn’t change one quality about her/”
From Katie: “TJ is sweet and level-headed. He knows how to calm me down and talk me off the ledge. He is giving and really cares about people. He is such a hard worker and such a positive person. He can always make me laugh and brighten my day.”
From both of them: “We feel so blessed to have amazing families that we enjoy and that like to be around each other. We have developed common goals and are really excited to grow old together. We can’t wait to be the cute old couple holding hands in rocking chairs outside of cracker barrel.”
