How did you meet your husband? How did he propose? I was a Resident Assistant in Heritage Halls and he lived in a hall close to mine. A mutual friend hooked us up. After a few weeks, he decided he wanted to "just be friends" and so I went on a mission. When I got back we saw each other in the Cannon Cafeteria and he asked me out. A few months later he proposed on New Year's Eve at the top of the Joseph Smith Building with the temple in the background. We rode in a horse-drawn carriage around Temple Square as fireworks signaled the beginning of the new year, 2009.

What story does your family always tell about you? My younger brother was born very prematurely and almost died. My mother was in the hospital recovering with him and my father was supposed to be watching me. I was two years old and very independent. I asked him to take me to the park but he wouldn't. I left through a hole in the fence, walked down the alleyway, crossed two busy streets and played on the playground in my diaper, alone. My parents were frantic looking for me but a neighbor spotted me and called the police and returned me.
