Dating since: October 2011
Where you met: A church beach volleyball game
When you got engaged: January 2012

Three words to describe yourselves as a couple: Silly, chai, adventurous
What your friends would say about you: A softball player, Ashley missed her senior season because she was married. “We just heard a lot of people say your first year of marriage is so foundational, you really need to commit to getting to know how to live together.... It was hard not to play. I love the game. I love my teammates.”
Something you’ve always wanted to tell people: Texas is the best country ever.
An anecdote that captures your relationship: They sleep in a twin-size bed, in their graduate student housing near Mather. They’re soon moving to a two-bedroom apartment in Watertown with a yard, a garage, and yes, a queen- or full-size bed.

In 15 years you are: AKR: On the beaches of LA. TDR: LA or somewhere in the Middle East....
