The Story of How Joe and I Met

With it being Valentine’s Day, I thought it might be fun to get a little personal and share how Joe and I met! I always love hearing people’s stories and what brought them together. With this being the day we celebrate the ones we love most, I thought it was the perfect time to share ours!

Joe and I met when we were 12! His family moved to St. George right down the street from us when we were in middle school. The first time I saw him we were walking home from the bus stop and he had curly hair and I remember having the strongest impression “you are going to marry him.” I hadn’t even talked to him! I never told a soul about that until my wedding day and I finally told my mom. It was so fun living down the street from each other- we had the same friend group and we are actually all still close!

In high school, we went on dates but he said he didn’t want anything serious and thought we should date other people. Mind you, my entire senior year I dated as many boys as I could, and he didn’t date a single soul!

After high school, things started to get a bit more serious. About 6 months later, Joe left for Florida to serve a two-year mission for our church. You can read more about that here. While he was away, I dated a ton, finished hair school + started my full-time job as a hairstylist, started coaching the high school cheer team, bought my first truck, and traveled a lot with my girlfriends. He came home 2 years later – 10 days before Christmas and we were married in March!!

Now here we are, almost 20 years later with 5 kids living back in St. George where it all started. My heart is just so full! I am so thankful for Joe and the life we are living together!

That in a nutshell is how Joe and I met. He is the best person I could ever ask for to go through this crazy life with!
