We met in college at UNC Chapel Hill in the fall of 2006. We were both involved in an organization called “Athletes in Action,” and we met through the weekly meetings. After five years of dating, Reid proposed the night before he left to go play for the 2012 season (he’s a pro baseball player). We went to the airport overlook at the Charlotte airport, which has an amazing view of the skyline and sunset where you can watch the planes land. Reid brought a blanket and we hung out for a while, talking and enjoying the scenery. As the sun was setting, he suggested we get up and walk over to a different spot to get a better view. It was there where he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes!
