A Real Date

It was this exact day 3 years ago that Michael Udall Reid took me on our first date. I don't know how many people know the story , but here is the short version. I had just gone through a pretty rough break up and was not really looking to get serious. Mike being the sly one that he is pulled some moves on me at the ward opening social. He got my number ,there were a few texts and then next thing I know he calls me up and asks me on a real date. That may not seem like much to most people but I had just been through the whole deal of someone not taking me on dates and just wanting to hang out all the time and never really acting serious about our relationship. It was so nice to have someone actually call me and ask me to go on an official date with them. I was already feeling good about this. So the night was amazing and we talked and talked like we had known each other for years. The whole thing felt so comfortable and natural. It was a perfect first date.
So to celebrate we went to Jason's Deli , which is where we went for dinner on our first date. We talked about what the other was thinking that night and we joked around a lot about Mike's good looks and charm sweeping me off my feet. It was fun to think back about that time in our lives and the beginning of our whole dating experience. Here are a few pictures from when Mike and I had just started dating. 

 Mike's first BYU football game. Look at him now a true blue fan. I take full credit

You better believe we are the birds and the bees for Halloween. I think this was a pretty good sign that we were going to get married

Now is the time I throw in a few engagement pictures because if it weren't for this magical day there would have never been such a happy little couple
