With all that being said.. The reason I really wanted to write this blog post was because I have to take a minute and brag. Ever since I was young I remember thinking how excited I was to be a wife and a mother one day to my own family. I was always so anxious to grow up so that I could get married. All through college I remember having so many talks with my mom on the phone because so many people around me were finding their companion and I felt like I was getting farther and farther away from finding the one person I could share my life with forever. Everyone kept telling me that it happens when you least expect it and I remember getting so frustrated because I felt like I wanted it so bad that there was no way I never would expect it.
I would always dream about the type of man I wanted to share forever with and after going on dates I never would want a second date because I realized that I couldn't see a future with that person. However, I can whole heartedly say that all those people were right. It really does happen when you least expect it.
I met my somebody a month after I had graduated from college.I had taken a 3 week trip to Tennessee to spend some time with my family after graduation and had just returned home. I had moved up to northern Utah and was living with my amazing aunt and uncle at the time. I got a text message from a boy that I had gym class with in 7th grade. He asked me if I was currently dating anyone because he had seen that I had moved up north. We continued talking and went on our first date two days later. Our first date was not the best but that was because I was not the best date to be with that day. haha I had just quite my job that day and was just not having a great day. We went and got dinner and then went to a drive inn movie. Even though I was the worst on that date he still stuck around. We continued to talk and go on dates. I have to admit I definitely did not think that I would end up marrying Austin but I was just having fun getting to know him more and going on dates with him. He happened to enter my life when I least expected it.
First date June 19th. We officially started dating on August 28th. We were engaged on December 5th and will be getting married on June 1st!
I choose you Austin Thompson to life with hand in hand side by side. I choose you to love with my whole being unconditionally. I choose you at the beginning and end of every day!
He will forever be my always and I could not be more excited for the life we are making together!
