Mark and I met in high school. You can read more about that here. He took me to my senior ball!
We got lucky and both of us decided to go to USU. You can read about that here. This is Mark and I on his 19th birthday.
We started dating on a "trial basis" after he had been home for a few months. I had gone to Boston to clear my head and when I got back I knew it was go time. Post about that here.
We dated for almost two years! Dating was super awesome. I loved it. Here is a post I wrote on our 1 year dating anniversary. If you are tired of reading sentimental stuff, go to that post.
On February 10th, 2014 Mark gave me the biggest shock of my life and proposed to me! Here is the post about that.
On May 6th, 2014 we got married in the Salt Lake Temple. Here are the posts about the wedding. ONE TWO
The next day we got in the car and drove to Baltimore, MD where we would be living for the summer to do summer sales. First, we got on a cruise ship that took us to the Bahamas!
Living in Maryland was the biggest trial of my life but now that all our friends have gone back this summer I miss it absolutely terribly.
We came back to Utah and had an extremely poor semester while I was student teaching. Now we have gotten adjusted to our new life and new schedules while Mark is working, going to school and while I am working like 55 hours a week. We are truly living the dream! Haha, but really.
I don't get mushy a lot, mostly because I know a majority of people dislike reading about happiness, especially on social media. It's true. Statistics prove it to be true. However I love Mark like I have never loved anybody and never will. I can't understand how he can work so hard, do so much and then not kill me when I leave cereal and milk in the bowl and it gets all hard and weird. That's true love.
