“What is your current relationship status? If dating/married, give us a glimpse of your story!”
…Just kidding, I can’t take away all of the details like that!
We had many mutual friends and ran around in the same social circle, yet hadn’t actually met until October 2011. We were both dating other people when we met, which was obviously not the plan God had mapped for either of us and for that, I am so thankful! We began spending time together with a mutual friend, and ran into each other at more than a few concerts of our favorite band, The Turnpike Troubadours.
Because we had both recently ended relationships at the time, we both wanted to remain friends for a while. After a year of “not dating each other but definitely not dating anyone else,” we decided to finally make it official!
Since then, our relationship has only gotten better with every day. He truly is my best friend, my biggest supporter of all of my crazy ideas and dreams and the love of my life.
One thing about Bret I am most thankful for is his humor. Those of you reading that know him, definitely know what I am talking about. When looking for a significant other, the list can go on for miles of qualities you would like them to have. After past “research,” I realized how much I needed someone who is lighthearted and can make me enjoy each day we have together. That is what I have found with him. He keeps me on my toes, sometimes more than I particularly care for, but in the end I am thankful.
We've had an amazing couple of years so far, and I simply cannot wait to see what the future holds for us!
