We met…

…at Archbishop Spalding High School in 10th grade. Zack thought Laura was cute. Laura ignored and avoided Zack for months. Late night AOL Instant Messenger conversations dominated the summer of 2006 and come fall, the two had 7 of 9 classes together. Zack chose a seat near Laura in every. single. one. Eventually, he won her over and they started dating in January 2007.

We fell in love…

…during the summer of 2007.  Zack and Laura spent the rest of high school side by side, but college put some distance between them. 318 miles to be exact. They saw each other about once a month, spent winter and summer breaks in Maryland, and exchanged approximately 1 billion text messages. After graduation, Laura moved to Baltimore to start dental school. Zack soon landed a job in Charm City, as well.

We adopted a cat…

…on December 3rd, 2012 and named him Roscoe. They’re the three best friends that anyone could have.

We moved in together…

…in  May 2013 to an amazing 18th floor apartment in downtown Baltimore. After one year, Laura, Zack, and Roscoe moved to the Otterbein neighborhood where they currently reside.

He proposed…

…in their apartment on their 9 year anniversary, January 27, 2016.

She said yes!
