We're getting married!
In the (location withheld) Temple.
We're very excited.
He proposed in a beautiful canyon after a morning of rock climbing.
(We both love to climb and it was our first date.)
I just wanted to tell you even though we've never met.
Thanks for all your advice over the ups and downs of dating.
Even though dating was interesting over the years, I'm really grateful for the experience.
I learned a lot about myself, and it was great to meet a variety of people.
Ultimately, it helped me know what I did and didn't want, so I recognized the guy for me when I found him.
I was really attracted to him because of his Christlike attitude. I've heard him complain maybe 3 or 4 times total.
He's always happy and sincerely likes everyone he meets.
He's always doing service for me or anyone around him.
I also love how natural and normal it feels to be with him.
The first time I met him, I thought "why the heck aren't we friends already"?
He fits right into my family, and I fit right into his.
We can go do things, or just hang out and talk and still enjoy being together.
He balances me out and has strengths where I have weaknesses.
I love him so much.
So that's that. :)
What a wonderful story!
Sister Jo and I are happy for you both. Congratulations!
Marriage is one of those things that you have to live to understand.
It's a lot of work, can be a few tears, and worth every effort you give.
Good luck, have fun, pray together oft, and Godspeed.
