8 month update!!!

It has already been 8 months that Mike and I have been dating. It's crazy how fast time goes when your having the time of your life. I'm at work right now so this post wont have any pictures but I'll put some on when i have time at home. But Mike and I have been together for 8 wonderful months now.
SOO... I don't think i have shared our story so here it goes. It's kind of long but we like it. (and this is my side of the story)
After my senior year i went on a senior trip to Nauvoo. on the last stretch i was riding with some parents and we started talking about there son and one of his friends (Mike) she suggested to me that i should go on a date with him but i said it's his job to ask. Not thinking anything of it till he added me on facebook ( i know facebook lame). We started talking and finally i gave him my number cause i wouldn't have my computer for the weekend. He text me and i was so excited, i mean what girl wouldn't, some cute guy texting me was just so exciting. we started texting a lot and then one weekend he came down and we went on our first date (El Saltos and a movie at his house). By now it's March 2008, I waited patiently for him to hold my hand. It took him a month to hold my hand ( i know we move slow). that was April 18Th, don't ask how i remember i just do. About a week later he kissed me, It's so funny how you can think about it and feel how it was and where you were and what you were doing. We spent the whole summer together. During the summer i had a birthday i will never forget. Mike and I had roast that his mom made and it was so good. HE made me a jello cake and gave me a CTR ring. that night we just laid under the stars talking and playing the question game. It was my turn and i asked him " what have you been dying to tell me but haven't had the guts to ask?" I had no idea what the answer would be but i wanted to know so i kept bugging him. after about 20 mins. of begging and moving twice cause the sprinklers came on he whispered in my ear, "I Love you." I was so happy and shocked to hear him say that. I looked at him and gave him a kiss and said "I love you too." I know so like in the movies but it is something i will always remember. When came time for school to start up again things got a little hard. he had to go back up to Logan and we wouldn't be able to see each other as much as we would have liked. Each week has been hard and the same times we would have to go 2-3 weeks with out seeing each other which was really hard. now the semester is almost over (FINALLY) and it has made us so much stronger as couple.
I am so glad that i have mike in my life. I don't know what i would do with out him. He has helped me so much in the 8 months that I'm sure he doesn't even know about. I'm so thankful that he is understanding when it comes to me being an idiot or a dork. And i know he will always be by my side. Thanks for putting up with me honey i know it's hard!

OH Fun! I know how you feel with being away from each other. I spent my whole dating/engaged life away from Trent. It was really hard but I think it was also beneficial for us. Hang in there. One day it will all be worth it. =D
