In the begining there were two.

This is OUR Love story!

For those of you who don't know Joey and I will soon be celebrating our third year of marriage. WOW, time sure does fly fast. We were married on October 21, 2005 in Layton, Utah. My Wedding was everything I ever dreamed it would be. Joey, along with our parents did everything they could to make it a dream come true.

Joseph and I met at Brighton Gardens Assisted Living where we were both working at the time. Joey had been working there for about a year before I started. He did maintance and cleaned carpets at the time. I was hired to work in as a "care manager" glorified name for a certified nurse assistant. When I started working there Joey instantly took notice in me and introduced himself. I wasn't quiet looking to get into a relationship but things fell into place and there were soon sparks. By sparks i meen a little old lady named Cecile, who was suffering from dementia but still had many years of wisdom to offer a blind man. The story is one night when the two of us were both working Joey had come up the the "office" to visit with the assisted living crew. Cecile liked sitting in the office as well so there we all were and just out of the blue she asks to me " Now do you have a Beu?" I what I thought to didn't take me long to realize she was asking if i had a boyfriend. So i answered "No, not exactly." She quickly then turned from me to Joseph and asked him "Do you have girl?" He responded very quickly not hesitating a bit and said "NO, I am still looking!" Well then Cecile looked straight at him and said "well if you would open your eyes you would see that what you are looking for is right there in front of ya!" So from that moment on Joey and I can't agree on the story but I know how it really happened and that is all that matters.

We began dating and just a few months later we were engaged to be married. The purpsoal was absolutely insane but so romantic all at the same time. It was Christmas morning and I had just gotten off of a graveyard shift at Brighton Gardens. I was very tired and somewhat in coherant at the time. It is hard to explain in words how Joey purposed but he had me all in dither and even had me thinking he was going to break up with me. LOL! Anyways he had me chasing a maze of twine throughout his house, outside then finally back into the house where he had a build-a-bear cat dressed in a tux and a build-a-bear pink poodle dressed in a wedding gown sitting. The cat had a voice box in his paw that had Joey's voice recorded asking me to marry him. Okay everyone now you can say "OH....How Sweet." My ring was and is beautiful. What a wonderful Christmas present.
