Four Years!




I can't believe it's already been four years and at the same time, I can't believe it's only four! Today is Josh and I's anniversary and for those of you who know us and "our story"...know it's been a long road (in a good way!). The very condensed, Reader's Digest version is our parents knew each other before we were even born, they were in the same ward. So we grew up together...as bitter enemies...until we were about 11: same sunday school class, our sisters were best friends, and my mom was his cub scout leader. But around 11, both of our families moved and I didn't see him again until I was a senior in high school, we met again at a church dance. What can I say, he was hot! (c: Unfortunately, after one disasterous date, I decided I would rather endure horrific torture than talk to him ever again! So how did we end up married you might ask??? Well, after a year at UNM, I was at Dion's with a friend discussing the end of my latest boyfriend, when I saw that same hot guy...I figured it would be a nice confidence boost to talk to him. I couldn't have ever dreamed I would ever so much as go out with him again, but I did. We dated for TWO YEARS and then both went on missions where we wrote each other faithfully, Josh to the Ogden, UT mission and I to Sao Paulo, Brazil. No one believed we would be able to still like each other, let alone LOVE each other after that, but two months after Josh arrived home, we were married in the Albuquerque temple on our 4 year anniversary of getting together (the second time!)...and they lived happily ever after!
