7 years ago, on saturday i married this amazing guy. who would have known, that all those years ago - i would have taken a leap of faith, going to brisbane even though everything had gone wrong (would you believe that i actually went to brisbane for someone else?) before i had even gotten there... but i got on the plane and decided to give it a go - and met the one. in all honesty, everything i never knew was missing in my crazy life.
doug was friends with my flat mate beth, who introduced us in the kangaroo point chapel foyer after i had sang at a friends baptism. i didn't really think too much of it, seeing him again at a party that night where i waved hello and kept on walking and then seeing him again at our house the following week where i was introduced again with a quip from beth, "this is my friend doug, you can marry him if you want!" not exactly what i was wanting to hear that week i can assure you. i was still dealing with the burns from the last one...
but... we came to be friends, and it all went from there. he invited me to the stake ysa ball, we kissed - and we have been together ever since... and i wouldn't change a thing. he is the best thing that has ever happened to me and i am so grateful that he chose me. looking into his eyes on our wedding day 7 years ago and promising to love him not only for this life, but for eternity was the best choice i ever made. i can't wait to spend eternity with him, miss madeline and our babies that are yet to come.
