Who wants to hear a little Southwest #ValentinesDay love story? 🙋

We’ll set the stage for you. The year was 2013. Tracy was flying to Vegas to surprise her dad for his birthday. It was a Tuesday.* It was cold out.*

*not verified
Anyway, as Tracy was waiting for her connecting flight in Austin, Texas, she noticed a handsome man sitting next to her in the gate area. 👀
After contemplating it for a minute, she gathered the courage to step out of her comfort zone and ask him something crazy: “Will you watch my bag while I use the bathroom?”
Suddenly, Johnross looked up from his phone at the lovely lady sitting next to him. Could he watch her bag? He read the situation carefully. Was this an invitation to engage in further conversation? Was it really just a favor for a friendly fellow flyer?
Picking up on her signals, Johnross gave her a romantic response. 😍

He decided to test his luck a little further and struck up a friendly conversation when she returned. Turns out they were on the same flight to Vegas.

They talked the whole flight, and the rest is history.
Tracy and Johnross have been dating since that fateful flight to Vegas. In fact, thanks to the Southwest Companion Pass, they’ve been able to make their long-distance love easy and affordable (shameless plug).
Now, fast forward to 2018. Here’s where it gets dicey. 😬🍿
Tracy had a flight to Dallas booked. She got caught up at work, and had decided she would just change her flight to a later time (which we do not charge a fee for, btw 💁).
Her coworkers assured her they could cover for her, and encouraged her to keep her original flight. When she boarded the plane to Dallas, she got a frantic call from Johnross making sure she made it on the plane. That was odd.
While onboard the aircraft, an announcement was made that a Passenger had won a special prize. Turns out that Passenger was Tracy.
When she got off the plane in Dallas, she was met by two Southwest Employees, who were going to escort her to her prize at the ticket counter.
On the way through the terminal, one of the Employees got a buzz on their walkie-talkie. They had to make a pit stop at the art gallery to pick something up.

When Tracy turned the corner to the gallery, her prize was there waiting for her.
Johnross had surprised her with the perfect proposal, in an airport, at Dallas LOVE Field.

Needless to say, she said yes.
So, here’s to chance encounters, to big new adventures, and to NOT changing your flight. Cheers to your happily ever after, Johnross and Tracy!
We love Johnross and Tracy’s story, and here’s another we just had to share. This one’s about how Morgan met Robby. 💑
Like most college students, Morgan was excited to start a new journey and move into her dorm in California. She was busy setting up her room, while a certain person was nearby (okay, it was Robby).
Robby was tasked with helping new students and their families with the big move. And just which family did he help? You guessed it. Robby chatted with Morgan’s father as they moved in, but somehow never managed to meet Morgan. Bummer!
I’m sure neither Morgan nor Robby knew their destiny was sealed at this moment considering they had yet to meet, but the universe had other ideas.

They just had to be patient.⌛️
Fast forward three years and Morgan was waiting to board a Southwest bird to Sacramento. She heard someone passionately talking about college hoops behind her, so she turned around and the conversation went like this…
*a dramatic re-enactment*

Robby: Is your dad Clark?
Morgan: Yes! Do we happen to go to the same college?
Robby: You bet. I helped you move in!
Morgan: So YOU’RE Robby?
Robby: Nice to meet you, too, Morgan. 😉
Thanks to our open seating policy, the two sat together. Morgan in the window seat. Robby in the middle.

The conversation just flowed and Morgan even wondered, “Is this real life?” But real life set in as they said goodbye at baggage claim.
Later that year, Morgan was attending a new church in northern California and guess who she sees: Robby, his mom, and brother. They all chatted in the parking lot after service and exchanged social media handles. After a week, Robby asked to take her out on their first date.
One date turned into two, two turned to three, and somewhere along the way, Morgan and Robby fell in love.
Morgan loves many things about Robby, but says the one thing she loves most is his selflessness. He puts others first, and she can’t believe she got so incredibly lucky.
Robby definitely feels the same and successfully pulled off a stealth proposal to prove it. On a rose petal covered rooftop overlooking the city, Robby got down on one knee and asked the love of his life to marry him.

Without hesitation, Morgan said yes.💍
To our friends Morgan and Robby, keep the love alive and best of luck on your forever ever after. Though, something tells us ya don’t need it!
There’s still time left this #ValentinesDay to tell that special someone how you feel. So before we forget, Happy Valentine’s Day to you! ❤️
