In the Beginning.... by Chris
Jenny and I met at BYU-Idaho. But, initially Jenny had gone out with my room-mate a few times. We each went to the homecoming dance but she went with my roommate and I went with another girl. We even have a picture together from that dance with each of our dates and us both smiling without knowing what journey we had ahead, or without knowing that we soon would be dating. On Saturday night October 5, 2002 Jenny came over to deliver some crème brulee in hopes to smooth things over with my roommate whom she told off the day before. She felt bad and wanted to talk things out with a treat. He refused to come out of his room and we ended up sharing the crème brulee while we got to know each other.
She asked me to go country dancing that coming Wednesday and I felt excited to go dancing with this new found comfortable friend. We spoke with each other as though we were friends before coming to this earth. Seeing the initial kindness of her heart in bringing the treat, I knew that I needed to make sure I met her that next week for dancing.
We began to date from there and within six weeks, I went home to meet her family for Thanksgiving. I knew at that moment we were to spend our eternal journey together.
I asked her to marry me where my grandfather proposed to my grandmother down by the falls on the Snake River on Valentine’s Day and we were married on July 5, 2003.
