Our Story

942256_0823

Colby and I met at our church in 2009. We had both been at the same church for years, but it wasn’t until October 2009 that we connected and started talking. He took me on our first date and it wasn’t long before we knew we wanted to marry each other. After 11 months of dating, we gotΒ engaged and just 5 months after that, in April 2011, we got married.

Colby is an accountant and moved to Texas after graduating from Kansas State University. I am a financial analyst and have been at my company 10 years, ever since I graduated from Baylor University.

One of our favorite things to do together is travel the world. We {or maybe just me} also love staying active and working out. Colby comes to watch me in my races and earlier this year he even did a triathlon with me.

We are hopeful that our future will include children soon, but in the mean time we like to make the most of our time together whether it’s sitting on the couch watching football or going on an all day hike in another country.

    Hi Caroline, I love your wedding photo and your love story of how you got engaged. Are you in Dallas now? I’ve been a BIG Cowboys fan my entire life. I will get there some day. I guess you aren’t coming to the Allume Blog Conference in a few weeks, that would be far for you (Greenville, SC). Was hoping we would be able to meet. Next one maybe! I follow your blog on Blog lovin.

    I’ve seen your comments on my blog and I’ve finally found yours! (Tough when I basically am always on my phone instead of a computer haha) Just getting caught up on your story and all that I can say is WOW.

    Beautiful blog and I will most definitely have you in my prayers. As you know, prayers are SO powerful.

    I look forward to keeping up on your story.

    What a lovely love story, Caroline! I love the proposal. That must have been an exciting day for both of you! St. Lucia was absolutely magical, wasn’t it? My husband and I honeymooned there as well. Thanks for celebrating with us on #shinebloghop100 this week. Great to get to know you better!
