After months of a great and close friendship, I found myself very attracted to this guy, and finding myself wishing to be with him all the time and missing him while I was away. So, I gave in and we started dating.
I did go studying abroad in London in 2005 and at each new place I visited or any neat thing I saw I would wish I could share it with Wes.
I came home and found myself discussing marriage... what?! I was still only 20 years old.
After reading my patriarchal blessing over again, I knew the most important thing I would ever do and be in this life was a wife and a mother. Knowing that, I knew the best person I could do this with was Weston Blaine Aleman. So on September 3, 2005 when he surprised me with a proposal the only answer that felt right was yes!!!
Since then we have had ups and downs, joy and sorrow, new beginnings, new jobs, new challenges. We have welcomed 2 little girls into our life and wept with joy over them. We have grown closer than I ever thought possible and have fallen deeper in love each day.
I married my best friend. I married an amazing man and an amazing father. He treats me with respect, kindness, loyalty and love each and every day. He serves me and flatters me, and truly loves me. I am grateful to have him. I am grateful he was willing to be my eternal companion.
And while we won't be able to do a lot for this anniversary... what with having had a child 6 days ago, I can't imagine a better way to celebrate than surrounded by those we love with all our heart, together in a happy home!
Happy 7 years!!!!
