Ode to Memories

{WARNING: If mushy makes you barf, don't read this post}

Typically I'm not a very sentimental person, but I do have my little quirks. One thing I've always been really great at since I was 12 (and up until I started dating Dan...) has been writing in a journal. I have 3 completed journals now, I am getting old! But I love going back and looking at where I was a year ago, or two years ago, or more.

Well looking back two years ago this month, October 2008, I had a huge crush on a guy in my student ward. I had known who this guy was for 5 months or so, but it wasn't until October when I looked at him one day and thought, "Man who is this guy?!" In my journal I called it a "crush on steroids". I knew from the beginning that their was something different about him then any guy I had ever met. In my journal I wrote about my knees getting weak when I saw him and how I had constant butterflies in my stomach. It was the kind of crush every girl dreams of, I loved it! (Am I getting too mushy yet??) I waited all month for him to ask me out, and I remember the night I finally gave up on it. I was sure he must not like me as much as I thought, because he still hadn't asked me out on a date! That same day I gave up on it became the night he asked me out for the first time. I told my friend "That's it, I'm done waiting he's not going to ask me out." Five minutes later I went in my room to get ready for bed, and two minutes later there was a knock on the door-it was him, asking me out. Finally!

In November 2008, after a few weeks of dates and hanging out, we had "the talk" and officially become a couple. Two years later we are married with a little one on the way! Crazy. Here are some pictures from this time 2 years ago when we first started dating:



















It's so fun for me to look back on these pictures from 2 years ago, I remember everything like it was yesterday. (Back when I went through a phase with my natural hair color, ew. But don't I look so much younger then?! Ahh the good ol' days with a few less wrinkles...) I don't believe that there is just one person for everyone, but I do KNOW that Dan and I were meant to be. The way we met, when we met, how we felt about each other from the beginning in comparison to past relationships...everything was perfect. I'm not saying that the past 2 years have been perfect, but it has been the best rollar coaster ride I've had so far in my life! I've learned so much from Dan. We've had our ups and downs, and I wouldn't change a thing. Dan is perfect for me, and I am perfect for him. I am seriously crazy about him!! Not to mention, he's the biggest stud I've ever met!!! {Seriously, if you haven't met this guy you need to. He rocks.}

So that is my mushy lovey-dovey post of reminiscing the past. And here's to the future and many more memories to come! Love you baby boo!
