Loyalty. Adventure. Admiration.
These three words describe Lorri and Josh’s relationship together. “No matter how badly that day may have went, we try to remind ourselves of our priority and what truly is important — each other.”
It must have been his Southern charm that swept her off her feet, because it could not have been the cut off ACU’s and mismatched t-shirt. Lorri giggles constantly while telling me all about their first meeting, “Who knew a funny story about cow-tipping could define my future?” A few short hours later, Josh gave her his number (a true gentleman!), and she texted him that night to thank him for the laugh, since she hadn’t had much to smile about that evening. I’ll admit, it’s hard to picture Lorri without a smile — Which just happens to be one of Josh’s favorite aspects of Lorri, so obviously they’re perfect for one another!
She explained that she was fresh out of a bad relationship, and not ready to dive into another one, but he was persistant. “He chased me with random text messages for about a month and a half. One night, I found myself at Maggie’s again with a group of girlfriends, so I texted him and told him to stop in! Mere minutes later, he shows up at the bar“, Josh interjected, explaining that he was going in incognito, but that mission failed utterly when he almost ran head first into Lorri. He didn’t recognize her at all initially, due to the drastic change in her character since they had last met. The dark cloud from her past relationship had somewhat dissipated by that point. He made her laugh again, so she agreed to a real date.
3 months into their relationship Josh was deployed to Afghanistan for a year, and due to the leave availability, they waited 10 long months before they saw one another again. Even with all of this, they just knew they were right for one another. You can just see the love they share….
