We’re all for a good “Meet Cute” story and Lauren + Ryan’s is nothing short of that! It all started when Lauren made a major move to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for her job at a local college… She wanted to immerse herself in the beach culture + immediately went out searching for a new surfboard. When she walked into a local surf shop, she fell in love with a shiny pink surfboard. The guy that sold it to her? Oh, he’d just turn out to later become her husband!! His name was Ryan. Little did Lauren know, but her interaction with Ryan would make such an impact on him, that he remembered a key detail — she frequently met up with her students at the Starbucks on campus. So for the next year and a half, Ryan intentionally walked through Starbucks to get to the library, hoping he would run into her (so sweet, right!?). Here’s Lauren with the rest: Well, his ploy didn’t work… But somehow our stars aligned. A year and a half later, I’m scrolling through my Instagram explore newsfeed. I came across a (random) photo of a guy surfing at a local beach and thought to myself, “Wow, I wish I was out surfing like that guy.” As I clicked on the stranger’s profile, I realized I knew him. This surfer stranger ended up being Ryan — the cute guy who sold the surfboard to me at the shop! After unintentionally “running into” Ryan on social media, I boldly slid into his DM (Direct Message) and we started dating.
