I don't think I have ever really told you much about the tall kid. Well let me tell you that this is one amazing person that walked into my life. Let me share a little of our story...

We were both living in SoCal at the time making our way through the wonderful world of Community College. So romantic already, I know! Anyways, the first day of classes of a new semester I wanted to add another class, unfortunately when I got there, there weren't any seats. So I walked out and strolled by the local institute. If you have ever been to institue you know how it is, you walk in and everyone stops what they are doing to see who just came in, can we say AWKWARD! I continued furthur into the building and had a seat on one of the couches. I started chatting with a few people there and the Tall Kid was one of them. I know what youare thinking, ow cute love at first sight. Well, although we were both attracted to each other we didn't start dating then, actually we didn't start dating for about a year and a half. It wasn't until we were both dumped on the same day that we started to see each other.

Yep can we say REBOUND! It's okay, it came out later that we had both really liked each other all along, but never thought the other did. It's okay, I am glad I waited for him, because we all know I dated some real duds! Oh yuck don't remind me! It's okay because he dated some real bimbos too! Yuck don't remind either of us of them!

Anyways let me get to my point... I am glad that I waited for him. I know that he is the one for me. He is worth moving up to Rexburg for. The choices that we have made together have gotten us to where we are and where we are going. I haven't enjoyed being away from our families and in the cold, but we have made some awesome friends and now have amazing opportunities for our future. I know that he is the head of our two-person family, but he is understanding enough to listen to my advice when making decisions affecting our future. I know that going to Law School will be tough on both of us but I am grateful that he is willing to sacrifice time now to enrich our future family.

He is goofy, silly and likes to adlib stupid songs all the time, but he is mine. He tells stupid grandpa jokes that no one gets but him. He is very tall. He is kind, extremely caring, and puts up with me, even on my crazy days. He very smart and thinks everything through, sometimes a little too much. I will always suposrt him in his decisions for our family. I know he is trying his hardest just to make the right choices for us.

I love him dearly. I have been meaning to write this post for awhile now, but other things just kept coming up. Finally I couldn't keep it in any longer. I am so happy that he puts up with me and our trials. It is interesting the further we get into our trials, the closer we grow together and learn to rely on each other more and more. Again I am so grateful for him and his love for me.

Tall Kid, I love you very much. Thank you for who you are and who you are going to be! Love ya Kid!

I love the tall kid too, and think you couldn't have done any better! It does seem to get easier to get through things together, as time goes on. I am grateful that you found someone who really loves you and is going to take good care of you!

Aaawwww! You guys are so cute. I wish that we lived closer so that I had more time to get to know him. I miss being around you guys, but I know its what is meant to be. You guys will love law school! Its rough and difficult, but man it has its great points. And the best part is that you get to do it together! I see so many of ALan's friends in law school that are single and I do not envy them at all. I just couldn't imagine trying to do it on your own. Good luck! And great choices!

Oh man it's a love fest. The tall kid is the best thing that ever happened to you. But then again, I think it goes both ways.

I am glad you are so happy and know that if you just keep each other first in your world it will never end.

I love you both!
