A year of Beautiful Beginings

As long as I could remember, I have wanted to start a blog! I am an avid blog reader and love getting new ideas and inspiration from them. I have now built up the confidence to start up my own! This year I have had and will have many new beginnings. I was married January 2nd 2013 to Zack Bigelow and have loved this new adventure! There is never a dull moment. I will graduate in one month from Utah Valley University in Health education. Crazy! Time has flown and now I see a light at the end of the tunnel. I will also start into a new career not just a job. Its a scary time of transition but also excitement to figure out where we will end up in our future and what we will accomplish! 

To start my blog I decided I was going to share how Zack and I met. We get asked all the time so now Ill have it in writing :) 

The Story
In February 2012 we met at a friends house. Zack had served as a mission companion to a friend that I had in high school. (Small World!) He tried to offer me a seat on the couch to which I denied. I had been dating someone else for a very long time and the last thing on my mind was flirting with someone else. Little did I know, after that meeting, Zack was asking about me and wanted to get to know me better. Our friends told him to  move on because I most likely wouldn't give him the time of day -- which was true at first. A couple months went by and we met again. This time it was mini golfing. All our friends got together to go and we began to talk a little bit more. However, I still was dating someone else and wasn't thinking that we were going to date. He began to add me on different social media sites like Facebook, instagram, and twitter. I followed him back on all of them and that began my curiosity in Zackery Bigelow. A couple weeks later, everyone got together for a bonfire at Southwood park. I went with some of my girl friends and then Zack showed up....... with a another girl! Secretly I was kind of bugged.. but brushed it off and had fun. He later told me he was so mad that he brought another girl because I was there! We didn't end up talking that much during that night. We met a few more times through group gatherings of mini golf, fires, and bowling. Finally in June, Zack sent me a tweet! (hahaha I know... this is what it took.) I had been doing henna tattoos at my sisters graduation party and Zack took that moment to tweet that he wanted me to give him one! The very next day I gave him my number so we could talk easier than tweets and Facebook messages. After talking all day, I invited him to go to the drive-in movies with all our friends. We meet and ended up just talking the whole movie. The whole next week we talked non stop! He came down to Provo to visit me. We hiked the Y (my first time ever), went grocery shopping (I know... that about made me fall in love right then), and then went to Cafe Rio. He would call me at night to wish me good night, text me throughout the day, and was just there for me. I started to get really confused. I was still dating someone else and I didn't know what to do. The relationship I had been in for so long wasn't the healthiest. For the majority of the time it had been long distance and we hardly saw each other. I knew I needed a change but change was hard. That weekend we hung out with a bunch of friends up at my families condo at Snow Bird Lodge. That night I started to be distant. Little to say I told him in a text when he left that we couldn't hang out or talk anymore. I needed to figure out what I was going to do. He was heartbroken and even though I didn't want to admit it, I was to. That next Wednesday I decided I had to see him. I texted him and we met for dinner at Rumbi's in American Fork so it was half way for both of us. We didn't talk much at dinner, but after we sat and talked for 4 hours! That talk led to me breaking up with my long time boyfriend and knew that Zack was the one I was supposed to be with for forever. Such a crazy feeling! I had never felt it before in my life. We haven't been apart since!
