Tell me about your love story!
My (Michelle) best friend from college, Rexi, suggested I meet Jeff during a weekend visit to Oklahoma. We went on an awkward group date to On the Border where everyone watched us like a science experiment. Jeff asked for my number and two days later we went on our first official date to a restaurant called The Mule. Afterward, we went across the street to a pub called Saints and played darts. I knew it was meant to be when we were both willing to make a 3 hour drive to see the other one in Dallas or Oklahoma CIty. Jeff proposed on Christmas morning 2018. He wrapped up a very sweet note in a large box. By the time I was done reading it, he was on one knee.
What are a few things you love about each other?
From Michelle: Jeff has a really kind heart. He cares about others. He is thoughtful and always knows when I need some cheering up, whether it’s buying me flowers or gummy bears. Jeff is also goofy and he appreciates my complimentary goofiness.
From Jeff: Michelle’s patience, her smile, kind-hearted, comforting
