How did you meet your husband? How did he propose? We met in VA when we were 13. We liked each other, but he moved away for High school and we didn’t meet back up until college. He proposed on a walk near the BYU stadium

What story does your family always tell about you? I had a rock collection in elementary school, and one day on my super long walk home from school I found a HUGE rock that looked like a dog, so I hauled it all the way home. My family STILL uses it as a door stop. My Mom still thinks it is so amazing I could carry it all the way home from school, and just can’t part with that stupid rock!
