Tallon + Donnie

-Liesel Schmidt

Tallon Connor and Donnie Elmore’s story is a little bit country…and a whole lotta love.

It was at a country music concert, in fact, that the two first met, through mutual friends who had been trying to set them up—though that first meeting didn’t quite seal the deal. Sparks flew, phone numbers were exchanged and daily texts ensued, but still Tallon didn’t quite feel ready to date. It wasn’t until a few months later, when they ran into each other at a restaurant, that Tallon realized she was finally ready to let Donnie into her life.

I’m high tailing it down to the dock, and Donnie can barely keep up with me. My stepdad, mom and all of our friends were there, and when went to open the cooler, and heard Donnie say, ‘I don’t want to call you Tallon Connor anymore.’ I turned around, and he was on one knee with tears in his eyes.
