We first met in the summer of 2007 at a 4th of July party at Amy's house shortly after Matt moved to San Diego. We were introduced through a mutual friend that Matt grew up with and Amy became good friends with while attending UCSD. Thanks Eric Randel!
Neither of us realized what we were in for! Several house parties and friendly get togethers (and on one occasion a little too much tequila) later, we found that we had a lot in common! A few marathons of Entourage gave us the opportunity to hang out on our own, and from then on we were spending most of our free time together.
We've had some amazing adventures over the last 6 years! Matt met the entire Holt clan not 6 months after we started dating, making the journey for the epic 4th of July celebration in Bridgeport, CA. Amy met the Stuhff family on the drive up, making it a monster weekend of firsts. Amy got to know the Stuhff family over several visits to Duarte and Matt got to know the Holt family on trips to Placerville. They all made us feel like family from the beginning.
Last June, after 5 1/2 years of dating, Matt finally asked Amy to marry him and she said yes! We're both excited to start this new chapter and to officially become parts of each other's families!
