I've had a few comments and even an email or two asking who Paul is. I guess I've never really answered or explained our relationship. He's this amazing guy mentioned and/or pictured here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. I got sick of going back in my blog to fine "Paul" blog posts, I would have found more than this if I woulda kept looking. Anyway, long story short. He's from Southern California, lives in Utah now and works at Standing Together. He met my brother Taylor on a missions trip 2 years ago. He came to Utah during school at BIOLA. He met my family during that time in Utah, but for some reason he and I didn't meet until a year and a half later. We met Feb. 16th of this year. The day after I got back from my trip to Peru. So many pretty great things have happened in the past 7 months, but without going into a lot of detail we've just become best friends. And then 5 days ago he took me to dinner and also, without much detail, we decided we should "make us official" and start to date. So that's where we are right now. It's been a fun 5 days. (3 of which were in California) Twice in 2 weeks! So while it sounds like a new relationship we really kind of feel like we've been in one, or at least moving that direction for a while, this is the right time now though...finally! Just kidding. I'm a firm believer that a huge percentage of a good relationship has to do with timing. And well, this is the right time I guess! A professor friend of ours at the Salt Lake Theological Seminary said this about our "new" relationship and I like it, "We've see it's shadow there for quite a while." It's true, it's been a while in the making. But it's so good. He treats me so well and makes me dang happy. Cute, huh?
What a babe.
