Our Love Story

Today we share with you our "love story." People always ask how we met, how we fell in love, at what point I decided to move to Texas, etc. Today, you get all the details told by both of us!



As Told By Morgan:

The last few months of 2014 are a bit of a blur. I was neck deep in interviews and reviews for my former music blog, The Tennessee Life, and was trying to grow my brand as quickly and organically as possible. I had many concerts on the books to attend before the holidays and was looking to schedule as many interviews as possible at those specific concerts. I ended up getting in touch with Eddie via a mutual friend in hopes of setting up an interview with one of his clients for a December concert in Knoxville. 

December 5, 2014: Cotton Eyed Joe in Knoxville, TN
If you would've told me then that I was about to meet my future husband, I would've laughed in your face. (also going out on a limb and betting Eddie has the same answer here.) I was not looking for anything serious and I've been told he wasn't either....but God had other plans and well, here we are!

I ended up not landing an interview, but what I got in the end was much better. Before I left that night, I found Eddie, introduced myself, shook his hand, and walked away. A few minutes later I got a DM on Twitter: "Thanks for sayin hey. See if I can find ya after?" Bet ya can't guess what happened next....I didn't respond. Luckily, he was persistent. 

Fast forward three months and he reached out again. This time I gave him the attention he deserved. Sidenote: We never stopped talking after this day. We've talked every single day since. We continued a long distance 'thing' for a few months before he finally visited my hometown during the summer of 2015. We had out first date at Texas Roadhouse. He will make sure to note that I ate chicken tenders and applesauce and I'll be sure to make note that he didn't tell me at the time just how much he hated Texas Roadhouse. He kissed me goodnight in my driveway and drove back to his hotel. The next morning he picked me up and we started our day at Cracker Barrel. To this day, it's still one of our favorite places to go together. We spent the rest of the day together and ended it by seeing a show at The Shed. From that point on, it was official. 

The next time we were able to be together was in September for his birthday in Nashville. I had already planned a trip for fall break to travel to Texas but something about that day with him changed everything for me. I remember saying something like: "I'm afraid when I come visit you in a few weeks that I won't want to leave." To this he said: "Then don't."

His response is what sent our love story into overdrive. I changed my flights, purchased a one-way ticket to Austin, packed a duffle bag and a carry-on, and left less than a month from that day to move to Texas with the man of my dreams. During my time as a Texas gal, we've gone from a one-bedroom apartment downtown to the cutest little house you've ever seen, we adopted the love our life Loretta, we launched a new blog, have a growing business, got engaged in front of the church where we are members, and fell more and more in love along the way. 

It's been nearly 4 years now and I'm more in love with Eddie K than that day in Nashville. I always tell people that was the day I knew he was the one. I fell deeply in love very quickly and I have zero regrets. Recently Eddie said, "There is no other explanation for you being here right now other than the fact that God chose you for me and me for you." Nothing explains our story more than this statement. 

As Told By Eddie:

They say that you shouldn’t go looking for love..that love finds you when it is time.  That statement couldn’t be more true.  I had a few relationships come and go in my life but when I met Morgan Hill Sellers I immediately knew something was different. 

Some time back my friend, Kait,  randomly sent me a link to a blog through my twitter DM. This blog was called The Tennessee Life. Kait said that I should consider reading this blog because they had some awesome blogs about music that she thought I would enjoy.  She also said that she kind of knew the person that ran the blog and she was a sweet soul with a great taste in music.  Little did I know that sweet soul would be my fiancĂ© and future wife. 

Naturally I read a few of the blogs and really enjoyed the content and loved how it was written.  Fast forward several months and Kait introduced Morgan and I and it started what would be a crazy few years.  

Morgan and I ended up chatting through Twitter (because why not this day and age) a few times off and on which lead to us meeting out in Knoxville one night. We briefly said hello and chatted over some loud music and a screaming crowd.  The meeting was brief and a normal exchange of hellos.  As I moved on to the next city we DM’d our “good to meet you’s” and "have a good nights." 

A few months later I was scrolling through my Twitter feed and this picture caught my eye. It was this fun, carefree, amazing soul that I was immediately drawn to....again.  Morgan and I exchanged numbers and began to text back and forth before we ended up meeting up in her hometown of Maryville.  We spent two days together and it was amazing.  It was a bit of a stressful time in my life so I was running around like crazy and she still saw something in me. 

A few months later Morgan and I kept in touch and out of the blue something told me I should invite her to move to Texas and live with me. Part of me thought it would be cool to “try” and part of me new this would be the woman I would marry.....

Here we are 4 years later and I couldn’t be more excited to call her my soulmate and wife.
