The Day We Met

A little while ago, my friend Laura blogged about how she and her husband met and fell in love. I thought this would be an awesome thing to do for our anniversary month. So, since our 10 year anniversary falls on the 29th of this month, the next few blogs are going to be about us. I know Brent's going to love this!

Brent and I met in a cave in Logan, Utah. Here's the whole story. At the beginning of my sophomore year at USU, all the boys we had known were on missions, except one. So, we said to Ty that he needed to bring by some of his roommates so we could meet more boys. One day, Ty comes over with this kind of dorky looking guy. (Don't worry, not Brent.) This new guy's name was Roy. He had just BARELY gotten home from his mission, so he was still a little weird. (I really like Roy now, but that was my first impression.) Anyway, Roy meets my roommate Heather and thinks she's rather cool. So, he asks her out. And it order to impress her, he decides that on this date, he's going to take her through Logan Cave. Heather didn't really like Roy and definitely didn't want to be all alone with him, so she started inviting people. Eventually, she invited about 15 girls to go along - me included. Roy didn't feel like he could get all these weird girls through a slightly dangerous cave all alone, so he invited two of his friends from high school to come with us. There was a kind of gruffly looking guy who didn't talk much named Glen and this quiet blond guy that was really nice. (Guess who the blond guy is.)

We are lucky - we have a picture from the day we met. How many people can say that?

Brent's even kind of behind me. Since this picture if from 12 years ago, I'll describe where we are. Brent's on the top row, second from the right. I'm on the front row, three from the right.

After we all go through the cave safely, everyone came over to our apartment. Brent and I talked a little more. He was funny and easy to talk to. I kind of liked this boy.

Next time ... our first date!!

Roy and I had to laugh at the group photo that you posted. It was so funny to see everyone so much younger. Roy laughed at your comment that he was "a little bit weird", he said he was "a lot weird" then. :)
