After beginning their relationship in highschool, these sweethearts continued to date throughout college with Maren at The University of Alabama and Scott at Auburn University. Before they left for college, Maren wrote Scott a series of letters to open that were labeled for when he may need them, including one for “when he was losing hope”. Scott said when he saw it that he would never need that letter. On December 18th, 2017 the two drove to Gatlinburg for a cabin getaway.  Upon arriving, they discovered that they were locked out of the cabin. Scott then decided to give Maren her Christmas present while they waited on the locksmith. He asked if she remembered the letters she had written, specifically the one for when he lost hope. Then he said, “I knew when you gave that to me that I would never have to open it, and I’m going to give it back to you to show you I won’t need it. I also have something else.” Before she knew it, he was on his knee!
