The Beginning

For those who already know far too much about mine and Jacob’s life…warning: tune out now. I am just going to do a quick recap (with the next few posts) for anyone reading who may not know us very well. We both grew up in Olympia, WA and absolutely love it with all of our hearts and someday hope to find work there and raise our own family in the place we will always call home. I think for us it is such a special place because it is all we really know and it is where we have made all of our memories with friend, family, and of course each other! For anyone who doesn't know, Jacob and I met our freshmen year in high school at the ripe age of 15, we remained friends for almost 2 years before he caught an interest in me. We ended up having weight training together our sophomore year (me…weight training, yeah that was a joke). Something sparked in that sweaty smelling, grime filled room where Jacob says “one day I saw you and was like…wow, I’m gonna date that girl” and I guess you could say he made it his mission. Although, it didn’t take much on his part, he got me pretty easily. Jacob has been my only serious boyfriend and you know what, I never had met someone quite as genuine, that one quality right there is when I knew he was someone special and someone I would want to stick around (perhaps forever? ;)) You know how high school goes, there were some ups and downs but we made it and that is all that matters. Something I had not known when I first started dating Jacob is how serious he was in his religion, how much it meant to him and how much it would mean to our future. This is where things get really exciting. Stay tuned, until next time.

We are infants....

First blog post everrrrrr.

I’ve been thinking for a while now that I’ve wanted to start a blog. At first, for no specific reason, but then I found myself reading others blogs that were just simply documenting things in their lives and I thoroughly enjoyed reading along and waiting to see what happens next. After toying back and forth with the idea I just thought, you know what I’m doing it. Within the next couple of years I have a feeling my life is going to be pretty busy with moments that will be unforgettable. I figured that beginning a blog would be a good place to document it ALL. The specific timeline of when it happened, the pictures to go along with whatever is happening in my life at the time, and the words to describe many of the life events that will be coming my way. I am by no means any kind of “writer”, this is more for myself to look back on in years to come, but I will also enjoy it as a way of passing the time. So I will now officially welcome myself to the blogging world. =) Here goes nothing!

P.S. This post has been sitting in my documents for a while and I have so many others post I want to catch up on but this just kept sitting here…and sitting here, so you know what I just decided to go ahead and post one thing and hopefully this will keep me motivated to continue playing catch up on the last couple of years of life.
