Our love story

We met February 7th 1997 at an Airforce base quite close to my home in Australia. What was I doing at an airforce base you may ask. Well my best friend convinced me that we should go out to the "Nuk" which is the airforce dance club/bar. Her husband had just been deployed. I was not really excited about going as I just got my wrist out of plaster(cast) earlier that day. So we gathered a few friends and off to the "Nuk" we went. My best friend had told me before we headed out that a bunch of Americans just landed today. Why was she telling me this I thought. I was in a relationship that I really needed to get out off as it was not going well. So after a couple of hours of dancing and carrying on, that's when this guy had approached me and asked if I wanted to dance. I about fell to feet as he spoke to me. I remember replying "you are american" His reply looking a little confused was yes. So anyways the night went on and we talked and danced none stop for a few hours. Towards the end of the night(1.00am) we decided to leave for another dance club. He had asked for my phone number and I happily gave it to him. As I was leaving he had told me that he will call me. My thinking was yeah right. Well at 8.30 Saturday morning he called. I was shocked but thrilled. We had gotten home at 6.00am Saturday morning from having a fun night out, I was beat. So Saturday we met up and spent a great day together. So long story short we spent everynight and everyweekend together for the next two months. I knew that he was heading back to Japan after the two months so I was trying not to get too attached. Well that was very hard to do and we both fell for each other. I remember a week before he left Australia he had asked me if I would ever considering moving to U.S so we could be together. WOW that was huge. Anyways I told him I would consider thinking about that. Before he left Australia to continue with his work in Japan he gave me 6 letters to open one each week that I was gone. I was flying out with two friends to travel Europe for six weeks. No contact for 6 weeks. However he did call my parents to see if they have heard from me. I thought that was sweet. On the way home from Europe we had a 9 hour layover in Japan. We were sitting at the airport with hardly any money for 9 hours and I could not even see my love. The base was too far away from the airport for him to travel. I think that was one of the hardest times of our dating. Moving on I called him when I arrived home and told him that I was going to Japan to spend two weeks with him. It was great. At this time we knew we were meant to be together forever. 1 1/2 years later I joined him in the States and have been happily married for 10 years. He is my best friend,a wonderful husband and great father to our children. I couldn't imagine life any other way

Last Saturday we had our wards Trunk or Treat, so much fun had with dancing, eating and going to trunk to trunk getting candy. Both the kids came home with A LOT OF CANDY!



Then last night we headed downtown to Trick or Treat Pioneer Street. In the ten years that we have lived here this was only the 2nd time that we have done this. The 1st time was right after we moved here. I must say this time was much more succesful than last.





We finished the night out at the Jensen's home where we enjoyed each others company, ate and played games. The kids had a blast by having a PJ party with watching movies, playing and making forts.
