The love of my life!

So after my long and enjoyable 20 year long man search I finally found the one that I shall marry! I had to go through all the other boys ranging from short, Mexican, "unknown", immature, retarded etc.. before I was able to find the one that I could see myself ending up with! This lucky fellow's name is Jacob Lee Beach he is 24 years old..old!

How we met:

I had tonsillitis for about a week or more and Grandma Bluth had been taking care of me because my parents were out of town. When they got back I was having cabin fever and had to get out and do something. About that time my friend Hailee texted me about a game night she was having so i decided to go. I showed up at the house not knowing many people but was still able to enjoy myself, as an hour passed the doorbell rang and in walked 3 boys or men whatever you want to call them. From that moment when Jacob walked in the door I ran over to Hailee and said "I like that one" having no clue who he was. As the night went on I caught him looking at me quite a bit yet I had no complaint. So after we were all done playing games we sat around and the "joy" of being a massage therapist is people think its funny to ask for massages so we spent some time giving back rubs to people (sounds strange) then Jacob said he would give me a better back massage he saved me. I told him how amazing I was at basketball so I would be able to get his number to see him again. It worked we exchanged numbers and went on our way. That next day I was at work waiting for my client and I told my mom that I had meet the guy I
would marry at the game night. Later that day he asked me to go to lunch with him yet I had just bought lunch when he asked me so I threw it away and met up with him at panda. Then the next day we played basketball and now here we are getting married January 31,2009!

I love you:

Jacob told me he loved me one day when we went out to lunch it was very cute he was so nervous. I told him I loved him about 2 weeks later at his house before I went home at like 2am.


After a short 3 weeks of dating beating around the bush of the fact that we both knew we were going to get married we talked about it with our parents and got a ring that was my grandma Gurneys that she passed onto my mom that is now passed down to me! Jacob had this entire thing planned out without my knowledge we ended up going to the temple and he asked me there it was so cute! He had his cousin across the reflection pool video taping the entire thing. He was so nervous that when he tried to get down on one knee he fell and ended up on two. He asked me if I would be his wife "forever and ever" and I said "and ever and ever" or in other words "yes" and it was amazing! after that we went and got food!!! then back to my house and shared the news!

I am so grateful for him & can't wait to be his wife!

I am excited for you both to learn how amazing an eternal marriage is. It takes a lot of work and sacrifice, but is the deepest joy that I have ever experienced. I am excited to have another sister too! :)

I love reading your side of the story (not that it's much different) it's a great perspective! I love the part about you throwing away your lunch and meeting him anyway. I've totally done that before LOL. I'm so happy that you will be part of our family and I know Jacob loves you with all his heart! I've never seen him like this and it makes my little heart pitter-patter :-)
