All Because Two People Fell In Love
A few months later they broke up, and I did my best to help him recover from the heartache!! Now don't get me wrong, I did check with my friend, I am not the kind of girl who would steal another girls guy!! To this day he still thinks it was his idea to take me out, and to kiss me on our 3rd date... well if that makes him happy who am I to argue?
Now the thing you have to understand about Berrett is, he.... takes.... his.... time...!! We dated for 6 years before he popped the question. Let me tell you it was worth the wait. He invited me to come along on a family vacation and asked me to marry him at Disneyland!! It was so romantic and even more special because he knew that my parents had gotten engaged there.
We were married in the Salt Lake Temple, 1 year, 1 month and 1 day later!! It was the happiest day of both of our lives!! We have been married for almost 12 years. He has a wonderful family with a lot of neices and nephews that we love like they were our own kids!! I can truly say that we are Super Aunt and Uncle!!
We spent our honeymoon at Disneyland and we have returned there time and time again. He always walks me back to our spot at Snow Whites grotto, and we make a wish in the wishing well. So many of those wishes have been for a family. We dream of taking our little girl or boy to our favorite place and introducing them to the magic kingdom. Seeing Disneyland through the eyes of our child would be the best vacation of all.
Berrett still loves the theater and holds down a 2nd part time job, working in the box office. He still takes.. his... time... making... decisions, but I am used to it!! His daytime job is In IT for a major corporation.
I work for a local flower shop as a customer rep in their call center. I have worked in different aspects of this job for over 20 years. I have been a designer, wedding consultant, manager, assistant manager, and now I am quite happy spending 3 days a week taking phone orders from our loyal customers!!
We are both active in church. I love the Primary, I have been a teacher and I am now beginning a new calling as 1st counseler in our ward primary. I also hold a calling as Stake Asst. Girls camp director. Berrett still giggles about this because I was not a camper, but now I love it!! Berrett has been the secretary in the Elders quorum and is at present the ward clerk. We both served Missions around the same time. He served in California and I served in New Zealand.
I love to cook and make up new recipes. We both love to do crafts and Berrett is the proud owner of a CRICUT cutter. I only have visitation rights!! LOL! I love to read for fun, and he loves to read for Information. He is the quiet one, although He is not shy. I am the talker, and quite shy!! I tend to run at the mouth when I am nervous!!
We love to go to movies, and the theater and try to keep up on our weekly dates. Some of our best dates have been sitting in the childrens section of the bookstore reading kids books to each other. We like road trips and have some of our best conversations there. I have read all the Harry Potter books to Bear while on these road trips. We like a lot of the same music and Bear will surprise me with ballet and concert tickets as often as he can. We give new meaning to the definition "young at heart"!! We work hard, and we play hard!!
