Gabriel and Katie

When I was a freshman in college I stayed home in Phoenix and went to a community college, but my best friends attended UA, so naturally, I visited a lot. My best friend worked at Highland Market and during a visit I met her there after her shift. I don't remember meeting Gabe, but he remembered me.

Apparently he kept asking about me and finally Teandra gave him my number. We began talking on the phone and after a year I transferred to UA.

In 2009, my grandmother gave him her engagement ring and wedding band and we were engaged shortly after. We got married in November 2011. I wore my UA garter and we left our reception to the tune of "Bear Down Arizona!"
