Fast forward to Mother's Day 2007. It was a Sunday afternoon and I was doing some baking in the kitchen. My aunt Donnette said that some family friends were coming over... Little did I know it was SueAnn and John, with their son Scott who had driven home for mothers day. They all sat in the living room visiting as I pretended to be occupied in the kitchen, but was really just mulling over the reality of the fact that this boy I had researched was only 10 ft away! I got shy and probably only said one word the entire night, "Goodbye."
Maybe a week later, Scott had sympathy on the new girl (though I like to think it was more!) and offered to come pick me up for the singles ward FHE. I about had a heart attack at the prospect and went with him happily. Of course, I knew all the hot topics to casually bring up to showcase all our commonalities: rock climbing, travel, our love for gelato. :)
Fast forward 4 months to September in Provo: we were both in the same state and we finally went on our first date! To the puspuseria on center street and then to spray paint t-shirts on a grassy hill.
And that, my friends is only the beginning of our love story :)
