Our background story!

Matt is my best friend. He is the first person I met at BYU. We were friends for all of our freshman year in college. We went on two dates and decided we were better off as friends. After our freshman year Matt went on a mission to Southern Italy. I went to a party at his house before he left and I met his parents. We all got along really well. We wrote a few letters back and forth but we did not think much of it.

After two years he came back home. He invited me to another party at his home in Newport.I realized from the moment I saw him that something had changed. It was different. We mingled with other people but ended up spending the whole night talking. We went on a date that next week and have not stopped talking.

I went back to Utah where I worked all summer. We talked on the phone all day and night. We would go on other dates with other people (that did not last long).I came back home in August for a week or so and we started dating exclusively.

Our dating relationship has been a blast. We have never had a dull moment between the two of us. We have had our share of adventurous and romance. I did not think a guy like him was out there. I did not think there was someone who was smart, kind, funny, loving, spiritual, and so many other great qualities.

Every day he tells me how much he loves me. He tells me how beautiful I am. He makes me want to be the best person I can. I am so excited to spend my life with him.
