8 years

I can't believe that we got married 8 years ago!  I am so lucky to have found someone like Todd.  He truly is my soul mate. 

We met in high school over 12 years ago.  We never dated or even hung out.  I always thought he was so cute and made sure that I attended the one class we had together.  We ran into each other a few times after high school and one of those times I mentioned that I was moving to St. George and working at Village Inn down there.  Well I didn't think much of it because we had just been the kind of friends that ran into each other and talked for a minute, said we should get together but never did.  One night I was working at VI and I got a call from Todd.  He was on his way down to Vegas with a friend and wanted to know if I would come.  Well I couldn't think of any reason not to so I went.  It was the most miserable trip of my life!!!!  I wore flip flop and we walked so much that they started cutting my skin in between my toes.  We drove down there in a old camaro that smelled like exhaust and was super loud.  Although Todd let me sit in the front seat while he rode in the back.  What a sweetheart he was.  It was a lot of fun to finally hang out but that was it.  We got back from Vegas and they went home.  I was working at El Sol one night, at least a year or so later when he came in with a group of friends.  I wasn't his waitress nor did I see him until I heard someone YELL my name across the restaurant.  I was kinda embarrassed but also so excited to see him.  We talked for a sec and I gave him my number I really didn't think much of it because he had his girlfriend with him.  Well about 6 months later he called me.  I never expected it but I am sure glad that he did.  We were married about a year later.

I couldn't have asked for a better husband, friend and father to our children.  I can't wait to spend the rest of my life loving him!

I remember your wedding, and after 8 years it's amazing how much we've changed, though of course you're as beautiful as ever. :)

I don't think I had ever heard how you and Todd met. It must have really been true love for you guys to keep running into each other. I want to know how you managed to slide Todd your # if you weren't his waitress AND his gf was there?? LOL Love you BOTH!
