Our 4 year "Meetaversary"


It was four years ago that Matt and I officially met after having known of each other for almost 3 years! I wanted to share a little about how we met. Matt's mother met me while I was working at the adidas outlet in Draper. She noticed I was deaf (her daughter is deaf) and told me I should write to her son, Matt, who was on his mission and later when he came home she came back into my work and said you should go out with my son he is home. I declined as I had a boyfriend at the time and the 2nd time she came in I had gotten my mission call and was leaving in a couple of weeks. So we never met until a week after I got home from my mission. We were set up on a blind date by his mother and my good friend Nicole. Matt didn't even want to go on this date and so his mother coerced him by saying she would pay for the date if he would go.... Geeesh.... I had seen a picture of him but he had never seen a picture of me so he had no idea what to expect. He knew I was deaf and thought he would have to use more sign language and expected me not to be able to talk as well as I do.  He tells me when he first laid eyes on me... He knew I was the one he was going to marry. I can remember clearly that he stared at me the whole night. We had gone on a double date to Fat Catz with my friends who were getting married the next day. I remember just loving it that he kept staring at me and a few times made eye contact and smiled big! I was thinking man this guy is tall and I think I could get used to this. We had a great night and from then on we hit it off and got married almost 7 months later.  I love you Matt and I am so ever grateful for all you do for me! I feel like I am such a lucky wife with a husband who is so caring, thoughtful, never yells...(seriously I have never seen him yell or get mad). He truly makes me happy! Happy Meetaversary Matt! I love you in World! 
We went to Brick Oven for a little fun night out!
