Our Story

My husband likes to tell our story like this: I gave him my phone number and we got married in Reno over the weekend. . .

Just in case that version of the story leaves you wanting for a bit  more, here's my version of the story: We were vaguely acquainted through our church "single's ward" at BYU. Though we didn't go on our first date until November 30, 2007 when I picked Squire's tie through an organized blind date activity. I picked it by leaving my name and number on a slip of paper on his tie. (Hence the half-truth about me giving him my number.) ;)

 We dated/courted for 6 months, then Squire proposed on May 9, 2008.

We were engaged for almost 4 months (we Mormons don't mess around - literally or figuratively!) and were married in the Reno, Nevada temple on August 22, 2008. (Not one of the drive-thru chapels downtown!)

I decided to postpone graduate school so we could start our family in October 2010.

One painful miscarriage and a year and half later and we were blessed with our sweet son, Lincoln.

Just shy of 22 months later, we met our baby girl, Atley.

We welcomed our baby girl, Jocelyn, 23 months later. What a beautiful Home birth her arrival was!

Squire is currently in his fourth year of medical school at the University of Arizona and hopes to become a rural family practice doctor. We're in Tucson now, but where we go for residency and where we end up, remains to be seen. He's in the interview process at the moment. We'll know for sure on match day - March 15th, 2015!

We hope our future brings us more children, a nice patch of land and some livestock to call our own, and more opportunities to connect and stay connected with the friends we meet along our journey.
