What's the coolest thing you've ever done? Writing and receiving uplifting letters to and from a missionary I didn't even know who eventually ended up being my husband =) The coolest thing I've ever done is lived my story of how my husband and I met.
How did you meet your husband? How did he propose? My husband's older brother Tyler came to be an intern out on the ranch I live on in central Florida. When his brother Randall (my husband) left for his mission, Tyler called and told me he felt like I should write his brother. Tyler gave me his address and also showed me a picture....ohhhhh I thought he was the cutest thing I'd ever seen. =) I wrote him a letter and from then on we ended up writing his entire mission. We never wrote anything romantic, we didn't know each other. We became good friends through letters sharing spiritual experiences. He would also share experiences of his mission, and I would let him know what was going on in my life. I fell in love with "Elder R" before I had actually met him. I looked forward to his letters every other month. After his mission we met each other for the first time April 22, 2011. That same day we decided to date...8 months later were married in the Orlando, FL temple December 17, 2011. I love him =)
The best thing about being married is: Getting to be with your best friend everyday and for eternity =)...ha ha and no longer having 5 other girls as college roommates...no more silly drama.
What do you and your husband like to do together? Team roping
What would be your perfect day? Waking up early, going out and catching the horses, roping and working the horses, warm weather, no homework, march madness, and orange juice ice cream floats while being with my husband all day. I love that man =)
What was the best advice you got/would give on marriage? Marriage takes work....but it is the best and happiest thing you'll ever do. Life begins when you get married...life is so much sweeter. Go to the temple every week, or at least as much as you can. Temple attendance greatly strengthens a marriage.
What story does your family always tell about you? How I randomly decided I wanted to play basketball my senior year in high school, and how through prayer and hard work, I managed to make the varsity basketball team my senior year at a 4A school.
