Tyler and I met through Facebook. Ironically enough, our families had known each other for years. Tyler's mom was my mom's dance team sponsor in high school. I was also friends with Tyler's brother Brad and had known Brad's wife Makayla for a few years. I never knew that Brad had a younger brother. Fast forward to October or November of 2020. I had just moved back from Abilene and was not looking for any sort of relationship. In fact, when Tyler asked me out, I considered canceling on him and running for the hills. But when I finally came to my senses and met up with him at Taco Casa, I was so glad that I changed my mind. Tyler met my parents right away. In fact, the first time he met them was at the Harper School Stock Show, where my youngest sister was showing her pigs. Tyler brought his daughter, Annabelle, who quickly fell in love with my parents and sisters. And Tyler, after introducing himself to my parents, jumped right into helping Brooke with her pigs. Since then, I have watched the bond Tyler has with my family grow, especially with my sisters. I knew I wanted to spend forever with this man when he sat for 4 hours in Ingram at a softball game with my family when I was not there. He never fails to amaze me. The best part about meeting Tyler was being introduced to his kids. Colt and Annabelle instantly stole my heart, and I have developed an unbreakable bond with them. In July of 2021, we had a surprise 50th birthday for my dad in Concan at the Frio River. Tyler asked him then if he could marry me, and he gave Tyler his blessing. The wedding was simple enough to plan, and we did mostly everything ourselves, with the help of my mom and sisters. It is hard to believe we just celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary, and I am ecstatic to celebrate in the many years to come.
