TEN

AT MY GRANDPA AND GRANDMA ANDERSON'S HOUSE 10 YRS AGO...WHERE THEY USED TO LIVE - HERE IN IDAHO FALLS, ID!


I VISITED THE HOUSE EVERY OTHER YEAR MY WHOLE LIFE FROM NY!


I DON'T THINK I EVER THOUGHT I'D MARRY AN IDAHO BOY AND END UP LIVING SO CLOSE TO IT LIKE I DO NOW!!!


TEN YEARS AGO...

...I WAS LIVING WITH MY PARENTS IN IDAHO FALLS, ID. I HAD EARNED MY ASSOCIATES IN EDUCATION AT RICKS COLLEGE, WENT TO BYU IN PROVO FOR A SUMMER SEMESTER, AND WAS GOING TO WORK FOR A YEAR TO EARN MONEY TO GO BACK TO FINISH MY BACHELORS.

...I WAS WORKING AT A DAYCARE AND WAS IN LOVE WITH ALL THE ADORABLE LITTLE CHILDREN I GOT TO TEACH AND NURTURE EVERYDAY.

...I WAS ATTENDING A SINGLES WARD IN I.F. AND WAS SPENDING A LOT OF TIME WITH A GUY FRIEND NAMED ROB.

...I WAS ASKED BY MY FRIEND ROB IF I'D LIKE TO GO TO HIS FRIEND'S MISSION HOMECOMING REPORT DOWN IN SOME SMALL TOWN CALLED SHELLEY 15 MILES SOUTH OF ME.

...I SAID "YES" I'D LIKE TO GO WHEN ROB SAID THIS FRIEND OF HIS COULD SING, DANCE, ACT, WAS SPIRITUAL AND HANDSOME.

...I WENT DOWN WITH ROB AND WE WERE LATE ENOUGH THAT WE HAD TO SIT IN THE FRONT ROW...WHILE KEVIN WAS TALKING I WAS LOOKING AT HIM THINKING AND FEELING LIKE I WAS HAVING DEJA VOUS. IT WAS STRANGE BUT I LIKED IT.

...AFTER THE MEETING, ROB AND I ENDED UP AT SHELLEY HIGH WHERE THERE WAS A LUNCHEON FOR KEVIN, HIS FAMILY AND HIS FRIENDS WHO CAME TO SUPPORT HIM. ALTHOUGH I HARDLY TALKED TO KEVIN THAT DAY, I DID TALK TO HIS LITTLE SISTER FOR AWHILE WHERE, AGAIN - THERE WAS SOMETHING FAMILIAR WITH IT ALL!

...I WATCHED KEVIN PLAY WITH HIS YOUNGER COUSINS AND THOUGHT "THIS GUY IS SO GOOD WITH KIDS" WOW!!!

...ON OUR WAY OUT ROB TOLD KEVIN ABOUT THE SINGLES WARD VOLLEYBALL AND THAT HE SHOULD COME

...HE DID AND THE REST WAS HISTORY

I thought you were Rob's date, so I was really surprised when he asked me if I wanted him to hook us up later that week. Even though we didn't talk much then, you did catch my attention. I remember at one point having my attention drawn toward you while you were at a table with some of my friends. I just had a feeling we'd be getting to know each other more; so I didn't have a hard time responding when Rob asked if I wanted to see more of you. Love you!!!
