How They Met
Mary Beth and Jay first met in January of 2007 at The University of Texas at Austin. Jay had just moved into University Towers (an off campus dorm) to continue his education during the Spring semester. Mary Beth had already been living in the dorms for a semester, but a few international exchange students moved out and Jay took one of the open spots. Jay was placed in the dorm right next to Mary Beth on the 8th floor.
There was a huge ice storm that began the night before the first day of class, which inevitably canceled class for the next few days. The 8th floor residents threw several parties to celebrate the canceled school days. During this time, Jay and Mary Beth spent a lot of time getting to know each other and their fellow dorm neighbors.
Over the course of several months, Mary Beth and Jay spent more and more time together, becoming best friends, and eventually decided to start dating. Almost 7 years later, Jay decides to propose, to start a new journey together, and to spend the rest of his life with his best friend.
Mary Beth and Jay bought their first house in June of 2012 and fell in love with their border collie puppy, Jax.
