1) Where did you meet?
I met Erik in Utah about 2 weeks before I left on a mission to Quito, Ecuador. Talk about bad timing. I was attracted to him instantly. I found out that he thought my little sister was cute so I didn't even want to try to go for it. I was very shy then so I would sit back versus go for a challenge. About 3 days before I was suppose to leave we ended up talking on the phone for over an hour. He said he was going to come and see me before I left. We went out a few times during those few days and then I left. He wrote me several times while I was in the MTC before I left the country. He wrote me maybe 2 times while I was in Ecuador. He was the last boy I kissed before I left and the first boy I kissed when I came home. I wrote in my missionary journal before I left on how and why he was the perfect guy for me.
2) How long did you date before you got married?
We met in 1998 and we were married in 2001. We had an off and on relationship. I think we were both afraid of the whole next step. After I returned home from Ecuador we decided we were better off as friends. He became one of my best friends at that time. I would tell him about the boys I was dating and he would do the same about the girls he was dating. I told him things I didn't even tell my sisters or mom. That is huge because I told my mom and sisters about everything. We made each other play the chase game pretty hard and then we finally quit missing and caught each other. Our friends said when I wanted him he didn't want me and when I wasn't interested anymore it was all he would think about. MEN! At least we finally got on the same track.

It will be 7 years this November. I cant believe it has already been that long.
