After graduating from BYU with a solid resolve to not get married for a decade or so, I eventually found my way back home on Bainbridge Island. Attending the family ward, though fun, wasn't giving me the social life I hoped for. So one morning I hopped on the ferry and showed up at the University of Washington singles wards. There are 3 wards at UW and without knowing a soul, I plopped myself down in U3, and introduced myself to only two people there: Robyn Dipo (Morgan's sister) and Maile Stephens (Morgan's girlfriend). I looked up at the man they had in common, who happened to be the Elders Quorum President, and decided that U3 was definitely the ward for me.
From that day forward, Morgan and I grew to be friends, and when he entered back into single's life, our friendship quickly blossomed. The very first time we were ever alone, I remember looking over at him and my heart skipped a beat as I heard in my head a voice saying, this is the man you're going to marry.
The thought actually freaked me out quite a bit, and I battled with the idea for the first few months we were dating, constantly wondering why I had that feeling, and if I really was going to be with him. Well here we are 15 months later, and it turns out that feeling was pretty darn legit.
