How we met...

Jake and I have been friends for a long time. I met him when I was 14 and he was 16. A mutual friend introduced us at a stake dance. Ever since I laid eyes on him I wanted him to be mine, but I had to wait 6 years before I could marry him.
We dated on and off all through high school, nothing serious. We were (well we still are) very competitive so we would always have fun playing basketball together. We had fun doing anything together, we were best friends. When he left on his mission it was very hard on me because he was the person I went to for everything. We wrote while he was on his mission though. I didn't write to him as much as I should have until 3 months before he came home. In October of '05 I got the feeling I was going to marry him, so I started writing to him every week. :)
Jake came home in January of '06. I pursued him like crazy! He thought he was going to go down to Dixie for college, but in March I got him to start dating me and in May I got him to propose to me. Though he did surprise me on that day. I knew it was coming, but my sister Katie told a fib and told me to expect it the following Wednesday when we were going hiking, instead on mothers day he took me on a walk through the canyon at bridal veil park and after 45 minutes of walking, pulled me off the path and by the river he proposed.
