Did you know...?

Did you know that I gave Spencer a full body massage the first day we met? Sounds pretty intriguing unless you know that I was in massage therapy school at the time and was giving full body massages left and right.

Did you know that after that day we met, Spencer and I became a couple almost immediately? He probably thought he would keep getting massages. He was wrong.

Did you know that after dating exclusively for about 8 months and talking about getting married Spencer broke up with me just after New Year's? Yes, he did. All the best couples go through a break up, right?

Did you know that while we were broken up we really and truly became friends? None of that friends with benefits garbage. For real friends.

Did you know that Spencer confessed his undying love for me on a drive up to Salt Lake City from Provo? Five months after breaking up with me, he realized he couldn't live without me ;) and he concocted a plan to tell me so. The plan involved him and his roommates picking up me and my roommate to go hang out with a bunch of mutual friends but making me ride with Spencer without my roommate. Very sly. It completely took me by surprise and I didn't know what to think about it at first, but within a couple weeks we were back together.

Did you know that very shortly after getting back together we started planning our wedding? We just picked up right where we left off.

Did you know that on September 16 we celebrated our 10 year anniversary?

Happy Anniversary to us! The time we have been together has been wonderful and I wouldn't change a thing! Not even the break-up. Love you, Spencer! Thanks for being you!

how wonderful and fun memories are! I remember you going through all of that, Rachel! I can't believe it was that long ago. Then again, we haven't been roommates for 12 years! AHH! We're not getting old, right? Anyway, congrats! I'm so glad to see you and your family so happy! What a beautiful family you are!

Having witnessed all the excitement (except the massage part- that would have been weird) first hand back then, it's wonderful to see the amazing family you two have built together. Congrats again!

Love, Ang
