Taylor was in her final year of nursing school at the University of Texas when she met Alan who had just returned home from his first deployment to Afghanistan. They quickly developed a friendship that grew into a relationship. Soon, Alan was sent to Missouri for grad school so the couple began dating long-distance. After grad school, he had his second deployment to Afghanistan. Taylor stayed up late to talk to him on the phone and showered him with care packages. When he came back to the States, she moved to Louisville, Kentucky, to live with him. They had a great year experiencing the city!
To celebrate Taylor’s birthday, the couple usually takes a trip. On this birthday, Alan talked her into spending it at her parent’s house in East Texas. He invited her to join him for a walk around the golf course to which she resisted because of the summer heat. On the walk, he dropped to one knee and said he wanted to spend every birthday with her for the rest of their lives. She excitedly said yes and the pair celebrated with their families.
