Right after graduation, I flew to NYC with my city orchestra where we would perform in...
I spent a month after this with my aunt who lives in New York and it was my first time away from home for so long. It was the perfect preparation for leaving for college.
That fall, I left for BYU. The night before I left at family prayer everyone was sobbing because life was changing in a way we could never reverse. I was leaving home. Since then, it has honestly been hard watching my siblings who still live together bond and love each other so much. The lives they are living are not entirely part of mine anymore and I am constantly out of the loop.
However, I would never give up the life I lead now. During my freshman year, I started dating this guy...my first boyfriend ever. Within 3 weeks, we knew we could be happily married to each other for eternity. We did wait though.
On March 9th of my sophomore year, that guy, the man of my dreams, proposed to me. I said yes and at the end of June that year, we were married for eternity. I do not believe that death separates us from those we love, and as such, why would I ever promise to love this man until I die?
I don't know how I did it, but I remember being bored for a while after I finished school, and yet rejoicing that my time was now devoted to K.
My husband graduated a semester after me, and 3 months later, C entered our home.
We moved that fall so my husband could attend law school and we now find ourselves in the midst of his second year. As we wait for school to finish and this season of our lives to pass into the next, we are loving life as much as we can. We have known nothing but school, apartment living and tight budgets, but we are truly happy and love each other. How can I ask for more?
I apologize that this was so long, but this is our final week of Mommy's Piggy Tales. If you wish to learn about this project, which will be starting again in October, head over and talk to Janna!
