{my favorite recent candid of T on Easter getting ready to throw water on his sisters}

The first day I saw this face at my singles ward, I was hooked. He tells the story like this...

"I went to sacrament meeting and I saw this cute girl sitting down the row from me and she kept staring at me and looking at me from the corner of her eye."
This is when I butt-in and say
"I was NOT starting at you. I looked at you once."

Which is a lie. I was totally staring! When he looked at me, it was like he was staring into my soul. I had never felt that before.

But I was having major guy issues at the time and wasn't about to get into another issue with another guy.

The next night was our ward family home evening. I didn't usually go but since I was going to be moving out of the ward I thought I would go and say bye to everyone. The plan was to play goofy games in the cultural hall and learn a dance {oh singles ward, i do not miss you}
When I walked in I saw HIM. Still, I wouldn't let myself get carried away. I stood in the back while everyone was learning the dance and watched him.
He was laughing and smiling. I had never seen anyone so happy and comfortable with themselves.
I wasn't about to make a move though. "He's WAY too cute for me." I thought.
After the dance part, we all sat down to play a game. He sat right behind me. I've never asked him if this was on purpose or accidental. I'll say it was on purpose. Him and his friend were discussing the word "cornucopia" and didn't know what it was. I turned around and tried to explain it to him, turned back around and didn't say anything else. After the game, I was extremely bored and decided to leave. I didn't say bye to anyone. I just left. {like I mentioned earlier, I was having issues at the time.}
As I was about to get in my Beetle, I heard footsteps running behind me.
I turned around and saw his gorgeous smile and amazing green eyes.
I was in shock and my brain literally stopped along with my heart.
He said "hey, I wanted to talk to you before you left."
It was at that very moment I knew I was going to marry him. I knew it. There was not a single doubt in my mind. I had never been so connected to a person without actually having a conversation with them.
He asked me out for Friday night. He text me the next day and said he wanted to go out that night but he had softball. I told him I would go out with him no matter what time he got done.
{I probably sounded desperate?}He picked me up that night and I just remember being in a trance, smiling the entire time, laughing at him and just listening to him talk about who knows what. He dropped me off and the next morning before I got in my car for work I saw a note on my car door that read,
"Char, I hope you have a great day! -Trent"
Really? Could he be any cuter?
After 3 months of dating, 3 break ups and get back togethers, and one extremely long week apart, he finally asked me the question I had been dying to hear.
And the love story just gets better and better every single day.

I love this man more than I love life itself. He has brought me more happiness in the last 3 years than I have had my entire life.

He makes me laugh everyday, forgives me for my stupidity, makes me feel beautiful, makes me want to be a better person, loves me for who I am, laughes at my bad jokes, thinks I'm cute when I swear and don't wear make-up, loves the gospel, gave me the cutest baby, is the best dad to that cute little baby, still gives me butterflies, is a hard worker, loves life, loves people,

and has a huge heart. He is the most selfless and reliable person I have ever known.

I am so grateful for the last 3 years we have had together, loving, growing, and learning from each other.

I love you, babe.


Renters Wanted!

Trent and I have bought a home in the Power and Queen Creek area. Since we are leaving for Virgina, we are looking for some good people who need a place to rent for the summer {preferably no pets} The home is brand new and Trent would like someone that wouldn't mind keeping an occasional weed out of the yard. Since we'll only be gone for 4 months, we're not charging much for rent and were willing to work something out. Please let us know if you or anyone you know is interested! Email me at chardaisy15 at msn dot com. Thanks!
