They had finished school and real adult life was starting to set in. They remembered the dimly lit Nowlin Center where Bradley would often spend his nights studying. They remembered how Amy only went there to socialize and kept coming back for one reason: Brad. Oklahoma Christian University, their alma mater, had given them everything: amazing friends, a […]

It was September 21, 2011. Their first date. Although they hadn’t gone to the same university and grew up on separate sides of the DFW area, their paths finally crossed in Oklahoma City.

“This is your first real semester of college,” my mom joked to me the day that she and my dad left for their semester long trip to Europe with more than 30 students. And honestly, she wasn’t wrong. For the split second that this semester has felt like, I have experienced a sort of very semi-adult-ish world […]

She is fierce and her smile is contagious. She brightens up the room–any room that she happens to be in. Her laugh is adorable. She loves all and fears nothing. Shelbie’s fun and confident personality is one that I have had the pleasure of getting to know better over the past couple of years. She […]

My brother Alex and I are in the Chicago airport. Our flight doesn’t leave for another 5 hours. We stayed in a hotel that looked like it came straight out of a horror movie after missing our connecting flight to London. Why did we miss our flight? Because we sat on the Tarmac for 3 […]
