one year ago today....

...Josh told me that he loved me for the first time.

I still remember that moment very well.

We had gone to dinner with my parents, and then he and I went down to The Gateway to play Josh's favorite arcade game: Final Furlong-you know, that horse racing game!

After he beat me several times, we decided to head home. 

As he walked me to the door, we hugged, kissed, talked, etc and after a few minutes, he said something along the lines of, "Allison, there's something I want to tell you.  I am so happy dating you and I love you.  I am so stoked about us and I can see wedding bells in our future."

The moment was perfect and so adorable.  I told him I loved him too, because I knew I did, but had been waiting for him to say it first.  I went inside my house beaming from ear to ear and couldn't stop thinking about how my life was going to change forever!

This picture was taken right around that time.

I will never forget that moment.

A few weeks later, we set a wedding date and called the Salt Lake Temple to reserve a sealing room.  A little over a month later, we were "officially" engaged and married 3 months after that.

Like Colbie and Jason sing, "I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend."

I truly am.
