How did you two meet, and how long did you two date?
Morgan: "We have gone to school with each other since the second grade, so we don’t really remember exactly how we met! We always knew each other and even had many of the same friends in high school but it wasn’t until we both went to college at Auburn University that we reconnected and started dating! We dated three years before getting engaged."
Do either of your remember what you thought the first time y'all saw/met each other?
Morgan: "When we first started dating, I remember how intentional he was. He pursued me so genuinely and respectfully and could always make me laugh! I knew there was something special about him and that the Lord had brought him into my life for some wonderful reason. I’m so thankful that I get to marry him!"
Billy: "I thought she was the most beautiful girl in the world and was disappointed that I waited until college to really get to know her. I couldn’t stop thinking about her after we really talked for the first time, and did everything I could to pursue her. The next time I got to talk to her, it didn’t go quite as I hoped, but eventually I got to take her on a date and the rest is history."
How and when did Billy propose?
Morgan: "Billy was interning over the summer and in May. He told me that there was a big annual company dinner at the plant with the employees and their families in June that we were invited to! A month passed with many conversations about the dinner, and finally, the day of June 27 came. As we got in the car to leave for dinner, Billy told me that one of his co-workers had asked him to pick up some food for the event at a restaurant in downtown Auburn on our way, which I thought was a pretty odd last-minute request. When we parked on College Street, Billy asked me if I wanted to come in with him, and told me to leave everything in the car. Instead of going into a restaurant though, he walked me past the restaurant towards the wall that says, “War Eagle” in downtown Auburn that I love, got down on one knee, and asked me to spend forever with him! He had even coordinated with our families to have a celebration on Samford Lawn after he popped the question. Much better than a company dinner!"
Billy- what's one of the things you admire most about Morgan?
Billy: "Morgan’s kind nature and unconditional love for others is what I admire most about her. She has the most easy-going personality and always sees the good in others. She teaches me every day how to handle any situation with kindness and grace as I try to follow her example."
Morgan- what's one of the things you admire most about Billy?
Morgan: "What I admire most about Billy is his genuine personality and his relationships with others. He has a way of making everyone around him feel comfortable and special which is something that first drew me to him! He has a servant’s heart, and is truly a light to everyone around him whether he’s known them for just a minute or his whole life. He sets a wonderful example for how to love people well, and I’m so blessed to get to spend my life with him!"
What are some things y'all like to do together?
Morgan: "Our favorite thing to do together is cheer on the Auburn Tigers at baseball, football, and basketball games! We also enjoy just doing everyday activities together whether that’s going on walks around campus or cooking together!"
What's next for you two?
Morgan: "I have two more years of pharmacy school left at Auburn and Billy is working for the university, so we’re staying put in Auburn for a little while! We’re looking forward to taking on the loveliest village on the plains as a married couple and are eager to see what plans the Lord has for us and our future together!"
