Our Story || Part Seven


So I said, "What?" And Adam text back to say he could come with us to The Haunted Forest. So we head out on a date, which I planned to pay for since I invited him, but he paid. And through the whole first half of the scaryness he held my hand tight. But as soon as we exited to wait in the next line, he let go. And I was so sad. So I decided it was over. And I decided I would just make the best of the time I had with him.

But about halfway through the wait he looked at me, straight in the eyes, and he pulled me into his arms, and he said, "You are so pretty." And from there to the end of the Haunted Forest he held my hand and he held me close. And even when we left all things haunted and spooky. He kept holding on. And then the rest is history. One week later we were Facebook official. One month later we said I love you. He came to Idaho to see my home. He left to the Dominican for Thanksgiving week and we couldn't talk much if at all. I went to meet his whole family over New Years. Five months later he asked and I said yes. And then three months after that we were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple for time and eternity.

That might seem like a really quick end to our story. After all that buildup and hype.  And I realize that I left out a lot of dating details... only because those dates don't make up our story. It was everything leading up to that. After all the drama and things that went wrong... it came together really quickly. But that is because I knew it was right and I didn't want to put things off anymore. And Adam felt the same way. And when nothing seemed like it was going to work out, somehow it did. And I am happier for it. 

I love him more every single day. I couldn't have found a man more considerate and caring than Adam. He knows how to respect not only a woman, but everyone he meets. And he knows how to make me feel like the most special girl in the world. He can always make me smile, even when the world seems to be plotting against me... and even better, I get more laughing side-aches and happy tears than I have ever gotten before. I am lucky to have him as my other half.

And we are living happily ever after.

Did Adam go to Dominican Republic on his mission? My husband went as well, along with one of my good friends. He might know Elder Jason Klingler or Elder Dave Ellsworth, if the had gone the on his mission.
