Its a LOVE story...

So this is going to be a longer post...but I thought I would share "our" love story, in a summarized version. It all started with a girl seeing a very handsome boy in a geography class sitting with a large group of friends. Girl really liked boy, but didn't know how to really talk to boys or know what to say to him. He was smart, popular,funny, and he was the running back of the football team, which girl found very attractive. This boy and girl danced around each other for quite sometime until a friendship began to grow. Now this boy was not like the other boys in high school, he was mature, respectful, and nice to everyone. As girl began to like this boy more, boy asked girl out...well this is what the girl was waiting for!! Why then did she hesitate...ya well, there was a slight problem, as much as this girl liked this boy,girl had a life long goal of marrying and only dating someone whom was a member of her church. Needless to say a short relationship did not last long, well boy was not happy about that, and did not talk to girl for some time. But the silence did not last forever, as I said before boy was very mature, and didn't want bad feelings.

So boy and girl began talking again. Well, boy asked girl about her standards, and why she wouldn't date him, and girl told him a little about her church and how important it is to her. After this talk something unexpected happened, boy asked girl why she never invited him to her church then..Duh! Why didn't girl do that? So girl did invite this boy and he came, but said that he probably wont come back again...but he did! Well no one knows why, but everything happens for a reason, and girl started liking a different boy, and started dating him. Yes, girl is crazy, well the boy continued to go to church and started taking missionary lessons, which were held at the girls house, unfortunately girl didnt attend hardly any of these because girl had cheerleading practice, and didn't really like boy at that time, why, well, you will see. So eventually girl stopped dating that other boy, because really all along she liked this boy so much. Boy eventually joined the church and was so amazing and strong, girl was so proud of him. And to this day girl knows why she was dating the other boy at that boy could focus on the gospel and not get baptized for the wrong reasons..yes it is amazing how things work out, and girl could not be more happy. To try and make a very long story short, girl and boy dated the last 2 years of high school.

Homecoming! On my birthday! Yes, Chance looks studly

Chance had to dress up for "fool for a day". As you can see I dressed him as a nerd, suits him dont ya think ;)

He wrapped boxes inside of boxes for my Christmas present one year, and when I FINALLY opened the last one...nothing was in it. "Oh Yeah, he says, I forgot that I put it in my pocket" tricky, tricky.

Our Senior Prom '08

Graduation '08

Halloween '08
And after graduation, boy had a decision to make, was he going to go on a mission? Well like I said before this boy is amazing and has such a strong testimony, that he knew that he was going to go on a mission for the church, he was worried about how to tell his parents, but they are wonderful people and supported him through everything, he is very lucky to have such kind, loving and understanding parents. As boy prepared to go on his mission to Montana, girl got a little apprehensive..what would happen to the relationship? Would girl wait for boy, or date and maybe meet someone else?

See you in 2 Years!

 Well boy went on his mission, and girl went to school in Utah. Boy and girl wrote a lot the first year. Girl came home from Utah and went to school in Missouri, and hadn't really been on any dates, but learned a lot from school in Utah, educationally and socially. Well the second year of boys mission, they didn't write so much...girl wondered where things were going. As boys mission came to a close, he asked girl to be at the airport when he got home. So girl obliged to that, and went with her family, and his family, to anxiously await for his arrival. Of course boy was the LAST one off the plane, and girls heart was pounding out of her chest. At last we saw him! And he looked good :). Girls sister was the hug "ice breaker" boy gave everyone a hug, including girl!! It was slightly awkward at the airport, but not too bad, boy talked to girl and asked girl to ride home with them after he got released by the stake president from his mission. Girl could not believe her ears, and she did not want to pass this opportunity up, so she did ride home with boy, and boy wanted girl to sit next to him! Girl was so excited and it was so easy to talk to boy, not awkward at all, it may have helped that his parents were there too. Well the next morning, before 7 a.m. girl got a call from boy, and he said he was on his way over, well girl started having a panic attack, she had just woken up and girl did not want boy seeing her looking like a wild banshee. So girl quickly got ready, just in time. Girl spent the whole day with boy, talking about his awesome mission, and how much he has grown, yes girl was drooling, she REALLY liked this boy so much! Over the next week boy and girl spent everyday together talking and catching up, and yes even about marriage! Well the next week was a whirlwind of emotions and adventures. Boy and girl went shopping for rings 4 days after he got home! And 3 days, and a couple of amazing dates later, boy proposed to girl in the back of their high school, while listening to their song "God Blessed the Broken Road", boy had a sweet poem for girl to read and after girl was done reading the poem boy was down on one knee with the ring! Girl was so happy she said yes!

The night we got engaged

At temple square in Salt Lake City, a fewdays before my sister got married, and yes, they got married 10 days before Chance and I!
 Now if you do your math right, boy and girl got engaged 1 week after boy got home, yes crazy, but it felt so right. Needless to say, boy and girl got married about a month and a half later. It was the best day of their lives, everything was perfect, and boy and girl love each other so much and couldn't wait to spend forever together.

I love this pic, I think because its kandid
Well, girl and boy have now been married a little over one amazing year filled with fun, adventure and so much love. Boy makes girl laugh each day and tells her every day how much he loves and appreciates her, girl feels like the luckiest girl in the whole world. Now boy and girl are expecting a baby, and they couldn't be more happy to share their love with this sweet baby. Boy and girl are so excited for the rest of their lives together, and are so happy for the leaps of faith they have taken and how far they have come, and are ready for wherever life takes them!
