I'm one of those girls who always wanted to be two steps ahead of everyone else around them and never wanted anyone to know my true age. I was born in Provo, Utah in March of 1992, making me barely 24...something my husband may or may not have known before he married me!
My mom calls me a "miracle baby". I had a 50% chance of living after the doctors found out I had something called a diaphragmatic hernia. My mom was only 4 months pregnant and one of the options given to her was to abort me. That was never an option in her mind. My parents took a risk and somehow I survived with no complications.
Two years later, my family moved to Austin, Texas, where I lived until I left for college at 17. (Skipping 7th grade and taking dual credit classes in HS kind of put me ahead of the game) I attended Brigham Young University in Provo where I graduated in advertising with a minor in sociology. I took an internship in Chicago at a big advertising firm the summer of 2012, but still had one more semester to complete before I could venture off into the big world.
During my final semester I decided to serve a mission for my church. I received a call to the Sweden, Stockholm Mission. 10 days after I got my call, I met a really attractive guy in the ice cream isle at the grocery store and somehow he convinced me to stay home from my mission.
Nathan and I got married in the St. George Temple on July 27, 2013. One week later we moved down to College Station, Texas so that Nate could start his two year program working toward a Master of Health Administration degree at Texas A&M University. Since then, we've lived in Vegas for a year, which led us to Nate's newest job in Nashville working as a consultant for Hospital Corporation of America (HCA). My free time is spent working out, designing wedding invitations, drooling over my friends' babies, and cooking.
