Back in 2003 during a small church service in Mississippi, Aaron had no idea his future wife was in the same room with him. He had come down from Tennessee to play music that Sunday and little did he know he was being admired. Erica thought he was so, so good, but she wasn’t about to let him know that yet. :)
They ran into each other again during a camp meeting the following year and actually talked a little bit, but the sparks weren’t flying yet…
Then in the early springtime of 2006, Aaron came down to Hattiesburg to a mutual friend’s birthday party. Part of the day took them to a rodeo nearby. The two future lovebirds sat by each other there and talked about music, football, and everything in between. Perhaps it was the springtime vibe (twitterpated?), but the feelings were mutual after that day.
On Valentine’s Day that year, Erica received a surprise gift of roses from Aaron and they’ve been inseparable ever since. They now play music together and will be harmonizing together for the rest of their lives.
We had a blast with these two. They are so much fun; just don’t ask about the Tennessee Vols and LSU rivalry! :)
