February 17th, 2017

On a volleyball recruiting visit to Millsaps College, meeting the man I was going to marry is the last thing I thought was going to happen. In fact, I absolutely did not want to visit some tiny school in Mississippi. But because I promised the volleyball coach, I went. I was set to tour the campus and stay overnight with some of the team. I toured and was pleasantly surprised by the beauty, atmosphere, and academics of the school. I even started to consider Millsaps as the place I could end up. Unexpected? Sure, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Fast forward a few hours into the evening: after some popsicles with the volleyball team, they decided to take me to a lacrosse game. Something I now know would change my life entirely. I chatted with some of the girls for a while, until one of them decided to introduce me to her English friend, Alfie. We started talking and immediately hit it off. It was like talking to someone I had known my whole life. For the rest of the night, we laughed and talked and haven't stopped talking since. And yes, below are photos from that day in 2017 on the bleachers where we met.

Current Lives

We currently live in Dallas, Texas with our newly adopted dog, Banks. Alfie works as an auditor for an accounting firm, and Emily works on the buying team for a big box retailer. In our free time, we enjoy playing in a sand volleyball league, exploring our new city, walking Banks, and cheering on Arsenal. #COYG
