Allen and I met when we were very young, and started dating in high school. Allen went on his mission to Denver, Co in 2007 while I attended BYU-I. We wrote the whole two years, then he came home in the summer of 2009. When he came home it was hard to believe that two years had come and gone, but we picked up right where we left off and quickly knew that we wanted to spend forever together (I think we both knew long before that though). After a long time coming, we were married on December 30, 2009 in the Sacramento Ca Temple for time and all eternity!
