The year 2020 was a memorable one for us all. While the world was shut down due to the pandemic, Lauren and Mack managed to find a silver lining in one another. For their first date, Mack planned a picnic at Wilson Park - outdoors and socially distanced of course. Fitting to their interests, Mack made brownies and Lauren brought the wine. After a string of outdoor dates throughout the summer of 2020 - biking the Greenway, brewery visits, kayak trips, and lazy pool days - they made things official. Their common interest in travel and experiencing new places sent them on many fun adventures together. Asheville, Lake Tahoe, Denver, Palm Springs, Las Vegas - just to name a few. The best trip of all though came in Fall 2021 during a 10 day road trip through New England. While sailing on a private schooner in Maine, Mack got down on one knee and asked Lauren to be his wife. Spoiler alert - she said yes.
