Introduction of my Dave...

I didn’t even realize I had not done a formal introduction of my Dave. Thanks to Malea for making me aware of it! Here’s a little history first of how we met.

Dave and I met a few years ago of all places in our single’s ward. Crazy, eh? I heard him speak in church one Sunday, and as he was introducing himself he said that he was a Math teacher at UVU. For those of you that know my history with Math, you will undoubtedly understand why I decided to write him off – even though he was a nice looking guy who appeared to be very normal. How could I possibly get along with a Math teacher, right? Well, within a few months I began going to get-togethers, and he was usually there. A friend of mine was interested in him, so I just kept my distance anyway. I mean, how could we possibly have anything in common?

A while later, we happened to find ourselves on the same cruise to Mexico. It was an LDS Singles cruise. I’ll tell you this; I wasn’t all excited to be there – since I had been recently disenchanted by a short relationship. Dating someone new was the absolute last thing on my mind. While on the cruise we spent a lot of time with Dave on the boat and on shore excursions. I thought he was a nice guy. He was always kind and considerate of everyone. I didn’t think much more than that, but I did take notice that he looked at me a little more than others. However, I wasn’t going to even let myself play that scenario out in my mind. Oh, one thing I did forget to mention – I noticed that he had a very nice build, which never hurts!

We all had a great time on the cruise, and upon returning home, I began to realize that I missed not seeing Dave. It was so nice having him around. He was such a calming presence (and still is).

Without boring you with the little details, Dave asked me out about a month later, and the rest, well, it’s history. We’ve been dating for 15 months now, and things are great!

Dave is originally from California. He moved to UT the same year my family moved from Hawaii. He is the 3rd of 5 kids. He got his under grad at BYU, then his masters at the University of Houston. He is a full-time Math teacher at UVU. He’s a very active guy. He loves the sun and continually shames me with his tan skin. He is handsome, kind, good-natured, intelligent, funny, sensitive, logical, and he gets along with pretty much everyone he meets fabulously. What I love about Dave the most is that I can just be myself with him. On any given night, you can find us watching the O’Reilly Factor and eating Hamburger Helper Beef Stroganoff or a good steak. We’re fairly easy going.

Yep, I love this man.

You may leave this introduction asking, “When are you getting married?”

I only have this to say…

Someday :)

You’ll find it all here!

It was this man's b-day on Friday. I sure do love him and am so thankful for him in my life.

Happy Birthday, Dave!
