Idaho Winter Engagement: Thomas & Rebecca

They met in a video game. This isn't the first time I've heard this story, but I love Thomas and Rebecca's version - it's better. The game is called League of Legends, and if you don't know what that is, it's one of the most popular in the world, a game that professionals make millions of dollars a year playing. Pretty crazy hu? Anyway, when Rebecca joined Thomas' group he initially had some colorful language to go along with that, but the toned down version is he basically asked "who is this?". Now before every match their group would often talk via Skype, and so Thomas was attracted "right away". He couldn't do much about it though, as Rebecca had a boyfriend of several years at the time.


A couple months go by and they find that they are really enjoying each others company, AND Rebecca had broken up with her boyfriend a little after the two had met. The gaming turned into talking, and talking a relationship, and before long, they find that they both really liked each other. It's an interesting story because all their talking occurred while playing a game, but the truth is, it's not much different than meeting online, or even in real life. You meet, talk, play games, and eventually become friends. And these two are definitely friends. I love talking with them (I've run into them several times now "out in the wild") and I've really enjoyed visiting with them and just talking about life. They are solid people, with great smiles and energetic personalities. I love it. Sharing their engagement photos with you is something I'm so excited to do.
