first blog experience!

Welp, we've made a blog. I think Katie summed up the reasoning in her post.

We met in our Liberty Square ward at BYU in fall of 2007. We were dating by Valentine's Day, had fun together during spring semester, and were engaged in September of this year. We are getting married December 27th, 2008 in the Washington DC temple and are so excited!

Behold, a picture timeline of our relationship:

Our first public outing as a couple- a ward activity. The girls made up anonymous dates and the guys bid on them with cans of food. Beau won mine, as planned. :)

At Thanksgiving Point. They had a birthday celebration for all the animals, with cake and everything. This goat was particularly friendly.

On the ferris wheel! I love his scruffy beard.

Spring semester brought beautiful weather and a great time to get to know each other.

I was able to visit Beau's home state of Colorado over the summer and meet his wonderful family- and be present for baby Miller's blessing! We are excited to jointly have 3 nieces and 3 nephews.
Then we got engaged! Beau proposed in the canyon, by hiding the ring box under our picnic blanket. One of my best friends Kate is a photographer and took our pictures.

Beau's half birthday celebration- note the half cake.
A few weekends ago, we got to go to Beau's brother's wedding in LA. Unfortunately, I don't have a full group shot... but this is us outside the temple with my first real live palm tree!
Sorry for the mass amount of pictures... but I covered 9 months, so I guess it's justified.

57 days!


  1. Wow, I can't believe you wrote this today after all that happened yesterday...WOW. But, i do agree with one thing...beau's family is wonderful.

    P.S. That is a cute picture Katie took of you guys.
