We met at Dick’s. Which isn’t the most romantic start of a “Love Story,” but it’s where we became friends and laughed and worked for years. He thought I had a boyfriend and I saw him as the “guy who owns the beautiful motorcycle…and hair.”
It wasn’t until about a year later, after I had quit working at DSG that we saw each other randomly in the grocery store. I gave him my number in hopes he would help me make friends, and that started my unknowing pursuit of Levi.
He worked nights for the Transportation Department in Missouri, and at the time, his nights consisted of plowing snow. I couldn’t imagine how he stayed alert, so often I would scour the internet, trying to find Batman jokes that would either make him laugh or keep him awake. I think I’ve always tried to make him laugh. He has dimples, firstly, and he has a big laugh that warms you like hot chocolate. And I like hot chocolate.
So, we’ve been together almost 5 years now, and we have big plans for our future together. One of those is going home to Montana to raise our family. Our wedding was perfect, and having family there for the week before gather in Montana was what our souls needed. The weather was beautiful and everything fell into place and unfolded wonderfully. I know God was working with me when we found our photographer, Kylie Farmer. How I came across her on Instagram, I’ll never know, but the photos she had made me think “she’s probably booked until 2021.” I remember feeling so calm because I had complete trust she would capture the love of our wedding. And she did, and she continues to with so many people. We are so blessed to have our wedding documented in such a beautiful way.
Thinking about our love story brings back so many memories; the good times and the bad, learning moments, difficult obstacles, and times when it was just us crying with laughter at our own inside jokes. But the magical thing about our love story is that it’s just begun, and we have a lifetime to fill its pages.
