I absolutely love this time of year. All the leaves are falling off and the air is crisp and school is almost out. Our fourth anniversary is coming up on the 24th and I feel like four years have flown by. We have been so blessed to do some amazing things together. I can't wait for school to get out so that we can take a vacation to Cali to relax and see our friends. I'm getting way excited for Christmas... even thought it is a couple months away. It's hard to not get excited when you walk into Walmart and they have isles of Christmas decorations and are playing Christmas music already. I promised Derek I wouldn't start decorating until December 1st. Hope everyone has a great thanksgiving!
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.
