ALIX + JAKE
We actually went to College together, both studying Civil Engineering. Jared knew who Lauren was, but Lauren had no idea who Jared was. After college we worked for the same Civil Engineering company in Ft Worth, where we got to know each other.
We had been dating since March of 2017, but had gotten to know each other since mid 2014.
We have similar fundamental beliefs, but we express and carry ourselves in different ways. It’s great that we always have the baseline, but the ways we go about our lives keeps us growing together. Lauren helps me see the world through her, I help her see the world through me. It helps both of us grow, and has helped created a strong team.
We share most of our hobbies. Travel seems to be at the top of our list, but we never plan it too far out. The trips are quite often decided on a whim. Music has been one of Jared’s hobbies, but has become one of Lauren’s by proximity. Concerts are usually on the menu during any given month, and we’ve made a priority of learning to play music. It’s a good way we challenge each other. Lauren has been learning piano and Jared the guitar. Another funny one is our commitment to audiobooks – we quite often listen to the same audiobook while we work; makes for good conversation in the evenings.
