I met Caleb at the Reinhardt event “Late Night Breakfast” in August of 2009 my very first weekend on campus during my freshman year and his sophomore year at Reinhardt. We spent the entire event talking and getting to know each other along with everyone else. Though I told him over and over again that I was in a relationship, it didn't stop him from asking me out over and over again, even with the repeating answer of "no."
Exactly a year later, after seeing each other only in passing around campus during the school year, did I find myself single and once again at “Late Night Breakfast” sitting next to “that cute boy that can’t catch a hint.” Caleb quickly jumped at opportunity to once again ask me out, but sadly, I once again said no. However, this time Caleb wasn't going to let me get away. We found ourselves both on the school’s Student Activities Council that plans and is required to attend all the school’s major events (I’m still not totally convinced that this was a coincident). He spent the entire “Welcome Week” showing off his charm and genuine sweetness, and this time he succeeded. On September 1st, 2010 we went on our first date, and have been attached at the hip ever since! We got married exactly two years after our first date, on September 1st, 2012, and commonly joke about how excited we are to come back to Reinhardt during graduation in 2062 to celebrate our 50th reunion while celebrating our 50th anniversary the same year!
