Jamey + Jon
Many of you already know the origin of this story. You know, the part where we meet at our job, and after my first day, I told the people closest to me about the cute girl in creative that just so happens to be the boss’s step-daughter. We would chat, we would flirt, but with people in my ear often telling me not to, everything told me she was the one. But what many of you don’t know, is everything that led up to it. Now, I won’t go through the whole beginning, but what I will tell you is that if you aren’t a firm believer in the saying ‘everything happens for a reason,’ then, you should be. For me, life has been a series of ups and downs, as I am sure it has been for everyone. I was completely lost and needed a change, but most of all, I needed a fresh, new start. In July of 2018, I packed a backpack and headed to Europe. I wanted to be taken out of my comfort zone, and experience life as I never have before. I didn’t know how long I would be there, but I knew I would know when that time came. After three months of one of the most incredible, life-alterting experiences, I headed home.
After two and a half weeks of searching for work, I was given a recommendation through a mutual friend, and shortly after was hired where I work today. During that time, Jamey was in the process of moving back to Idaho from California where she spent the past six years studying at Chapman University and after graduating, worked as a Graphic Designer for an up-and-coming nutrition company. In September of 2018, she began to call Idaho home, again. It was here that she started to work for the family company, and soon after, purchased her first home. We were both going through big changes in our lives, both focusing on ourselves. Neither of us were looking for anything more, until our paths finally crossed. Here it was on my first day, October 17th, 2018, I met Jamey. A cute blonde, with a sweet, yet fiery personality. Immediately we hit it off, and soon after, we went on our first date. As we work with most of her family, we wanted to let them know right away. And from there, the rest is history. I really can’t truly wait to marry her.
