One of our favorite events in Baton Rouge (besides cheering on the Tigers!) is the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Benjamin’s parents have a home on the parade route and were hosting a pre-parade party at their house. The morning of the parade, my husbands little brother, Matt, called him for a ride because his bike had a flat. We got to the bike path and couldn’t find Matt. When I turned back to Ben he was down on one knee in front of the River with the beautiful sunrise behind him. It was picture perfect!

HOW THEY MET
Ben and I met through some of my sorority sisters at LSU. Ben offered to tutor my roommate and I in Biology. After only one session, he asked me on a date to a nearby Mexican restaurant (who can resist queso?) That’s where it all started!
