Note to world: This girl is no longer on the market.
Liv and I have been cousins almost my whole life (she is just a few months younger than I am) – but our love affair started the summer before high school, the one when I added five countries to my list as we cruised the Baltic waters and perused along the coasts of Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Russia, Germany, and Denmark. In high school she was my rock. I knew if it was something I felt comfortable telling her on our weekly phone dates, than it was an okay thing. She has always been an example of charity, goodness, work ethic, intelligence, and friendship. I am so grateful to have her here at BYU, always there when I need someone – the perfect combination of friend and family.
Brian proposed over Christmas break, complete with flowers, waves, a lighthouse, and the most beautiful ring. I always liked Brian, but knowing that he’s smart enough to snatch up a good thing – makes him that much better 🙂 He is one of the luckiest guys I know.
I wanted to share a few of the words Olivia shared with me about my own wedding. They were meant for a blog feature long ago, but seem so fitting now:
