We started dating in May of 2006, right as Derek got home from his mission and I was graduating High School. His sister set us up on our first date. After that we hung out EVERY DAY! On August 25th, we went up to the cabin with our families for dinner. Derek and I saddled up the horses and went for a ride. We came to a tree with a rose hanging from it. Tied to the rose was my ring. He asked me to marry him and of course I said yes and we were married for time and all eternity in the Temple on November 24, 2006. It all happened really quick, but we knew we were meant to be.
