Our Story.

We met in 2005 at the tender age of 16.  I was in a play at our high school with our mutual friend Josh. We just got out of play practice and Josh and I stopped by my brother’s soccer banquet that was being held right down the hall from where we rehearsed. When we went into the gym Josh started talking to one of the players. I decided to kill time by standing outside the gym talking to some of the soccer mom’s. I got restless after waiting for a long while so I walked into the gym and told Josh it was time to go. That’s when the player, he was talking to, looked at me and asked “Who’s this?” I was hooked! Josh introduced us. His name was Scott and I knew I couldn’t go on without learning more about this boy. After we left the school I squeezed every ounce of information I could out of Josh. I found out he went to a small Christian School near by and they didn’t have a soccer team so he played for Central. I knew from seeing him in the community that he had a twin brother and that the ladies loved them.(haha) After finding out more pointless facts that mean the world to a 16 year old girl I begged and begged Josh to give me his phone number or email..ANYTHING! He refused then said he would make me a deal, if I helped him collect the codes inside the top of soda bottle caps he would give me his email. Being the desperate young girl I was, I agreed. I spent the next month of my life elbow deep in the trash cans of Central High School collecting the caps. Pretty gross but somehow I knew it would be worth it in the end! The month finally came to an end and I was finally rewarded with Scott’s email. I instantly added him to MSN messager and we started chatting. We ended up going to a school dance together and a few weeks later we started dating. We were content with our relationship where it was at. Having our parents drive us to see each other, hanging out at youth group, and spending all the time we could together. Eventually though we felt like we needed to see more of each other so I switched schools to be closer to Scott. We graduated in 2008 with a class of three, Brent(his brother), Scott and I. After we graduated Scott enrolled for fall classes at Mesa State College and I started a month after we graduated into cosmetology school. I knew that I wanted to find a career that I could run from my own home someday when we had children, guess I just like planning ahead. At the end of my schooling Scott proposed Sept. 2009. I said yes and then graduated in October. With all the changes coming my way I got really scared of getting married realizing that I was only 20 and I felt as though we were too young for marriage with having limited life experience. Sadly I broke off the engagement. We spent the next few months apart and started missing each other so we got back together in December. It was too soon and we weren’t at good places in our lives. We broke up a few months later. We decided that we needed to wait until our priorities were in order and had God back as our center. We spent almost the whole next year doing our own thing, making stupid decisions, and not getting our priorities straight. We started talking again in December after realizing that the way we were living was not healthy to us mentally or spiritually. We started digging deep into our Bibles and encouraging each other through scriptures and prayer. We started attending Church together but decided we needed to stay friends for the time being. After a month of talking deeply and lots and lots of prayer we agreed that it would be good for us to get back together. Things were so much better this time around because God was finally our center. In April 2011 Scott proposed and we started planning a June wedding. Planning a wedding in 2.5 months is really stressful but everything turned out PERFECTLY! It was the most beautiful day of my life! I couldn’t believe that the boy I met 6 years before was finally my husband. It was a long road to get where we are today but it was a journey that was necessary to making us who we are now. We’re a strong couple and we know that rain or shine we’ll always have each other and our love is bigger than any problem. God is completely responsible for bringing us back together and making something beautiful out of the mess we made! Some things just really are worth the wait! <3

    So I read this and it sounded like a fairy tale. You two make such a wonderful couple! As I was reading it, I couldn’t help but think that someday I have a relationship with someone that is as strong as your’s and Scott’s. :)
