Happy October 3rd!

1 year and 1 month ago today.

I married my best friend in the beautiful Los Angeles Temple.

It was the best life decision I have ever made and the start of something I could have never imagined.
At first I was a little weirded out at the thought of being married at 19 years old but I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I never really saw myself as a 19 year old anyway.  I wasn't much of a dater through out the years. When I met a guy and hung out with him by the first night I would usually know if I wanted to pursue it or if the guy would just drive me crazy. and most of them did. or it was just better off as a friendship.
However when I met Andrew something lit up inside of me. I got butterflies every time I saw him. I knew that I didn't just want to be friends with him and I didn't want him to leave my life either.
Little did I know that he would never leave my life. I got him for forever.

This past year as been full of life adjustments, changes, and amazing adventures with my best friend.
I love you Andrew English Sorensen. You are my everything and more. thank you for being my husband. you give the best hugs a girl could ever ask for. I love knowing that I get to grow old with you.

I am so in love :)

It was a wonderful night. I loved just being alone together with no stress or worry. just us having an amazing time celebrating our one year of forever. 

Andrew got me this amazing pearl ring that I have been wanting and a necklace that is just perfect. It has a pearl on it, then a stamped piece of metal with two birds on it, then another small stamped heart with a+a on it. MAN this boy did gooooooood. 
I got him this awesome BYU football book that he has been wanting for..well ever since he first laid eyes on it. And I also got him a pair of shoes but they are taking for-e-v-e-r to get in.
