How we met: So Carson and I had been in the same YSA for over a year and my ex had actually told me to get to know him before he left for college. So I friended him on Facebook after my ex broke up with me. I sat on messenger several times in our chat debating if I should message him or not. Then I saw him on mutual and swiped up and we instantly matched! I was so excited! We started talking about it right away and one thing led to another. After about a month of taking, we went to a camp out for conferences in October of 2019. After that, we went on a date and then became official. Not too long ago we talked about marriage and we’re now getting married soon. I’m so blessed to have met him!
Our engagement story: I had wanted to take Carson up north for his birthday in May to one of my family’s favorite lakes to just have a picnic and spend the day. I was so excited to escape the heat of the Arizona valley and take the love of my life with me. We had fun singing and talking on the way up. When we got to the lake we sat down and had lunch. When we were done I said, “let’s bring all the stuff back to the car before we hike around the lake.” He then says to wait a minute and he hands me a little envelope and a letter. I read the letter and it was so sweet and very close to my heart because he knows how much I love letters and little written forms of love from the ones I love. As soon as I was done reading it he took both my hands in his and began to tell me how much he loves me and how he wants to spend the rest of his life with me and how he isn’t sure about much in his life but marrying me is definitely one he is sure about. He gets down on one knee and has the most beautiful ring I had ever seen in his hand and asked me to marry him. And of course, I said yes! At that moment I couldn’t believe we were getting married! It was so surreal and the happiest I had been in a long time. We are now on our way to getting married in the Phoenix Arizona temple!
