How did you and Ryan meet?
We met for the first time in 2002 when Ryan came to visit Nashville. He was in town to rehearse with a new band he was joining before the band flew to New York City to play a showcase for a major record label. We had dinner with a big group of mutual friends and all went to a movie together.
When Ryan officially moved to town the following January, he started hanging out in the same group of friends. We hit it off very quickly and we saw each other pretty much every single day from then on. We became really great friends, but we knew that I had been excepted at NYU and would be moving to NYC in the fall. When that time rolled around, Ryan’s band was on tour so we actually got to see each other several times when he played near New York and that time apart is really what solidified that we had something special.
I moved back to Nashville to finish school and we’ve been together ever since! We never really had an official first date, but we truly built our relationship on a strong friendship. Our favorite date nights now are going out to eat for a yummy dinner!
