Our Love Story

June 29, 2010

Today was our  2.5  year wedding anniversary! Cheesy, I know but I thought it would be a good excuse to share the story of how Brian and I met.

I was 18 and had two more months left in my senior year of high school.
Brian was 22 and home from serving an LDS mission.

On 4.29.07 I went to church with my family just like usual.
 We sat in front of some friends, Alan and Danielle John.

Right as the opening hymn was about to start a young guy {Brian} came and sat down next to them. I tried to sneak a glance or two at him during the meeting but didn't get a real good look at him until the meeting was over and Danielle introduced Brian to my mom and I.
We all chatted for a second as we walked out of the chapel on our way to sunday school.

Sunday School was.... typically pretty boring. So I procrastinated going to class, got a drink went to the bathroom, and eventually decided I better go find a seat.

Due to my procrastination I didn't get to pick my seat. My mom had saved me a seat..... right next to the Johns and Brian.

It was my lucky day too because after sunday school we were having combined RS/Priesthood meeting. Meaning, that everyone would stay in the same seat for another hour! By this point I had decided Brian was cute but I couldn't quiet pin down how old he was. Finally, after all the meetings were over he asked for my phone number.

Obviously I gave it to him :)

Like any good mom, later that night my mom called Danielle to find out the details about Brian. Return Missionary. 22. Smart. Wants to be a doctor....Sounded great to me! :)

He called me later that week and we went out on our first date.
We had a great time and he asked me out on a second date.

After our second date he sent me flowers to me AT SCHOOL!
The office secretary called my name over the intercom and said I had something to pick up in the office. Pink Roses.

It was pretty much downhill from there. We spent everyday together.
Brian even came to my high school graduation!

We got married 12.29.07 {exactly 8 months after met} in the SLC LDS Temple.

And now 2.5 years later we are happily married! And instead of flowers I got a stale breadstick and some carnival tickets for our "half" anniversary. How romantic.
