Eric sent me a smile on LDS Mingle, the very beginning of January. Instantly I knew there was something different about him. Even the women at work were telling me that I needed to be with this guy from the letters he wrote me. I found myself doing things that I would never do (stepping out of my comfort zone much too early). By the second week of January, we were talking on the phone on a nightly basis for no less than an hour at a time, sometimes 3 hours. I wasn't planning to meet Eric until the second week of February, but it seemed that it wasn't supposed to be that way. The plans that I had to go on a cruise at the end of January fell through, so I got in my car and drove five hours to see him for the weekend. That same night, (January 31st), he asked me out! We continued to move forward in the relationship much quicker than I have ever agreed with. It was like all the rules that I set in my head about length of dating and how quickly feelings were allowed to come on just didn't apply to Eric. Everything about being with him felt right. At the end of February, I went north to meet his parents and that's when he asked me to marry him. We're getting married on August 23rd in the Cardston Temple! From the moment we started talking, I had been praying to know if I was supposed to pursue a relationship. After some real fasting and prayer, we know that we not only are compatible, but are truly meant to be together for this life and the next. We couldn't be happier!
