Hello! My name is Cari La Tour. I’m 20 years old, and I recently married the love of my life, Trigg.
This is Trigg 🙂 He’s 22, and he changed my last name! We live in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and attend the University of Arkansas together. He is majoring in Computer Engineering, and I am majoring in Applied Mathematics. And we are complete nerds!
I grew up just a few miles north of the Gulf of Mexico, in Bayou Vista, Louisiana. My dad is the minister of music at Bayou Vista Baptist Church, and that’s my home church! I learned about the love of my Savior Jesus there, and I got saved and baptized in that church when I was seven years old. I’m forever thankful that my parents raised me to learn the truth about God’s Word, taught me about Jesus, and brought me to a church where I could grow.
Trigg grew up here, in Fayetteville, Arkansas! His dad grew up in Ville Platte, Louisiana, with my mom and her siblings. And that is how we met! I don’t actually remember meeting Trigg (because we were babies then), but we started dating when I was 15 (almost 16) and Trigg was 18. We lived 10 hours apart for 2 and a half years. Talk about difficult! But last May I graduated from high school, and…
Trigg asked me to marry him on the beautiful island of Maui! We were there with his family for the wedding of some of our friends. And on the night before we flew home, he asked me if we could have our own wedding! Just not in Hawaii 😉
So after my busy summer, I moved 500 miles away from home to Fayetteville, Arkansas to attend college…and get married! Now, I have a year and a half of college under my belt, and Trigg only has one semester left. We’re members at Cross Church Fayetteville, where we’ve already gotten plugged in and formed so many Godly relationships. This summer after graduation Trigg will begin working full-time for an amazing electronic design company that he’s worked for (part-time during the school year) for over two years now.
I hope to use this page to share about my life and the love that Christ Jesus shows to me. Cari La Tour: the Lovesome La Tour.
Lovesome: inspiring love; lovely; lovable.
