the beginning
we met in 7th grade english class and became the best of friends our senior year of high school.
it all began when Tyler surprised me by asking me to prom!

things moved pretty quickly after that. we finally realized how much we adored one another.
we graduated high school in May, then spent every waking moment of the summer together.
we completely fell in love!

our time apart
Tyler received his mission call for the LDS church, called to serve in the Arizona Gilbert Mission.
October 30 arrived, and we said see you soon. Tyler left to serve the Lord as a missionary for 2 years.

we missed each other more than anything. being apart was harder than anything we'd ever done!
yet we wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

before Tyler left, i told him i also wanted to serve a mission. 
i joined him in the mission field in June 2014 serving in the Canada Toronto Mission speaking Spanish.

Tyler and i continued to write back & forth while serving our missions. 
we missed each other like crazy but we enjoyed our time dedicated to serving the Lord!
and after 24 months, we finally reunited.

 best. moment. ever. 
we felt so much JOY we couldn't even contain ourselves! 
730 days apart only helped us grow closer together.

together forever
1 month after returning home, Tyler asked me to be his for eternity! 

and 3 months later on the 11th of March, we were sealed for time and all eternity in the Payson Utah LDS Temple.

put simply, it was the best day of our whole lives.

and somehow, everyday just gets better.
