Before I Die, I Want to Marry You


On January 1, 2015, I woke up to a text explaining our full day of shopping, eating Chinese, and going to the "Before I Die Wall" on Market Street in Louisville, KY.

I was so excited to spend this day with Jacob because we both had Christmas money to spend and we were both off work. Jacob picked me up at my house around 11:45 that morning and we headed to Louisville. We went straight to the "Before I Die Wall" and when we arrived there we got out of the car and walked up to the wall.

Jacob wrote on the wall "Before I Die I want to impact the world" and the first thought going through my head was, (man I need to write something good). While I was standing there thinking, Jacob proceeded to write "Before I Die I want to... do this --->".

As I read this I was so confused, and knowing how Jacob is I thought he was going to break out in a dance or something, but little did I know seconds later he would drop to his knee and ask me to be his wife, and spend the rest of my life with him!
