a little over a year ago, i was going to school up in logan, utah at utah state university... when i finally came back home, i was in the nauvoo station singles ward, but all of my friends were in valencia...and there were cuter boys there too, so i decided i would go to valencia with my friends. it was the beginning of april, at a break the fast when i first saw heath. i think i fell in love right then. he was the cutest boy i had ever seen. he was standing with another boy and a girl. i turned to my friends and asked who that hottie was, and they all replied, almost simultaneously, "ohhhhh that's grant farnsworth." then chelsea said, "everyone likes him, but he has a girlfriend." except, i had been talking about the other boy. the tall one, without the girlfriend. they were all shocked, but told me that the other boy was grant's twin brother heath, and that he was so shy and that he never asked girls out on dates. i think that made me like him even more! they introduced me to him, but he clearly was not interested. i, on the other hand, could not stop thinking about him. i'm not quite sure what it was about him, but i couldn't get him out of my head. so for the next week or so, i plotted with my friends on ways to talk to him again. they told me that he probably wouldn't ask me out on a date because he was so shy... so i took matters into my own hands. after creepily adding him as a friend on facebook, i planned a date with some of my friends, and planned to ask him out. for fhe the next week, we went to the easter pageant, and afterwords i went up to him and asked him on a date. he said yes! i was pretty much ecstatic. so the next week, (april 25th, 2011 to be exact) we went on a date to the drive in movies. it was a lot of fun! he was really quiet and shy, which i wasn't used to, because i'm completely opposite of that! but i was so intrigued by him. i remember him telling me that he had never kissed a girl before, and i about died. seriously, everything this boy did and said made me like him more and more!
after that first date, i still had him in my head, but he didn't seem to care much. he was nice to me when he saw me, but never asked me out again. the only times we would talk were when i initiated it. (ugh!) then september rolled around, and my two best friends were getting married... i knew that heath would be at chelsea's reception and so i finally had another excuse to ask him out! i asked him to be my date to the wedding, and he said yes again. it was fun, but he still didn't give me much. i could tell that he wasnt really that interested, and really bothered me. it drove me crazy and made me want him even more! (this is a picture from our first date! so cute and young! haha)
i don't know if i could really pick out a specific day or moment that i fell in love with heath, but looking back on everything, i think it was that day. spending the whole day with him was the best feeling and even then, i knew that i wanted to spend every day with him.
we went out a bunch the next couple of weeks, but then about a week before christmas, he broke things off, saying that he needed to date other people.
2 days later, we were sitting on the couch together and he told me that he wanted to be with me forever. that he couldnt picture his future without me in it, and asked my ring size! the next day he told me that he loved me! hahaha that boy... he's got it a little backwards, but it's okay. :) we have been dating since then, and i have been so happy!
