January 2011: I Started Dating The Love Of My Life


The first time I saw him, I don't actually remember, but I do know that I thought he was a good looking guy. The first time I met him, he doesn't actually remember, but I do know that he was dating someone. The first time we talked one on one, we both remember, but I do know that he wasn't really interested even though I thought he certainly was.

That first one on one was at a ward activity in November. I was studying for the GRE, around that time, and he offered to help me simply because he loves math. Well, like I would let that opportunity pass! I already knew he was attractive, smart, and funny so even if I hadn't needed the help, I still would have taken it. He came over a few times and really did help me (I got into graduate school). I decided to make him dinner as a thank you. We also spent a little bit of time together because we worked together in a calling in our church. Then, I went on my Paris, Egypt, and Israel trip. When I returned, he asked if I would tell him about my trip. It blossomed from there. Actually I think what really got him interested was the fact that I wanted to play a video game with him. What really got me interested was the fact that he kept wanting to see me, and his GIANT GOOD heart is so easy to see.

Now, in a few short weeks I will get to marry that good looking guy who is now my best friend. How cool is that? Oh, and I get to marry him knowing that our relationship will last forever. How even more cool is that?

Amber and Marcus sitting in a tree for e-t-e-r-n-i-t-y. Cheesy? Yes. And I truly hope we don't have to sit in a tree for that long!
