8 years

Yesterday marked 8 years since Gary and I started dating. It was the summer of 2000, I had just graduated high school and we were in China. What a cool place to say we started dating. Actually....while we were there it was pretty miserable but since we were enamored with each other, we didn't notice as much how hungry we were or that we had to use the bathroom by squatting over a hole in the ground. We climbed the Great Wall of China together, saw the Forbidden City, visited Buddhist temples and ate interesting food. A lot has happened in the last 8 years and all of it has gotten us to where we are today and for that, I am grateful. We have a beautiful daughter and we love each other even more than ever. Yay for school trip LOVE!

Eight years ago was also when Jacob and I had our CTR (choir tour romance). And it just gets better every day!

We're still at BYU for one more year, if you guys are still around, it'd be fun to get together! You can email me at opo16[at]yahoo[dot]com.
