Madison and Ethan’s Slippery Start Turned Inseparable Love~7-7-18

How Ethan and I met: We were both at Freshman orientation at College of the Ozarks. We were not in the same group, but some people in my group knew some people in his group. Both of our groups decided to go jump into Lake Taneycomo. I hadn’t really spoken to him at this point, but he had definitely caught my attention! After getting out of the water to head back, I slipped on a wet rock, and Ethan happened to catch me before I fell. He still likes to tell people that he “saved my life.” That was pretty much the extent of our first interaction – me about falling on my face in front of him!! However, the next day I got asked to go to Table Rock with a group of people, including Ethan. We got to talking more that day, and I managed to keep both feet on the ground, and we got along great and talking to him was just so easy and fun!! It is safe to say from that point on we were pretty much inseparable. We both graduated in May and got married on July 7!! Here are some of our favorite pictures from our favorite day!
