Our Life Thus Far . . .

I am pretty new to this blogging thing but I thought that I would give it a try as a way to keep a journal, but also to share important things that are going on in my life. About three months ago I married the love of my life for time and all eternity, and even though we have already had our fair share of trials, we are very happy together. Last July I came home from going up to school at BYU-Idaho and felt kind of lost. I did not know what my next step in life was going to be and was depressed for what it felt like months. In actuality, it only took two weeks to bring my smile back when I went on a Bryce Canyon trip with my singles ward, and met Jake. It was almost instantly afterwards that we started dating and then the rest is history!

I love Jake more than anything else! He is currently working at Maceys grocery store, while going to school. He is working on becoming an eye doctor, and still has a long road ahead of him. I love how much of a hard worker he is and how much he truly takes care of me. I would be a total wreck without him. I currently work at Backman Title Services, and recently got promoted to be their receptionist. Our combined work schedules make life very lonely at times because we say goodbye in the morning and hello in the late night. We try to take advantage of the time we do have together, because we know how rare it is.

I reflect back on our wedding day as the happiest day of my life. I don't know if I have ever smiled as much as I did that day. Even though we still have a ton of things to figure out, and our life is not perfect, we know that we have eternity together, and we could not be any more thankful and happy!


  1. Welcome to the blogging world! I love you guys. We should get together some day when you're not so busy. :)

    1. Are you going to be in Fillmore on the fourth? Because Jake and I might be coming down! I heard you guys have amazing fireworks!

  2. Great post! I'm so excited you and Jake have each other, and that we are all one eternal family!

  3. I love you both. We are so thankful to have you join our family Michelle. Most of all I love the love and joy that you have given to Jake.
