Our Love Story: Part 2

"Here's the thing about this love story of ours. Its long. And drawn out. And mushy-gushy. And even a bit cheesy. But it's true. And I've decided to take my time writing it, capturing all the special details of those moments I never want to forget. So if mushy-gushy, cheesy love stories aren't your thing, I totally get that. Just know that I'm writing this as a gift - to my family, and my children, and their future children - and also, for [Parker] and me - so that on those days when the kids are screaming, the laundry is overflowing and the bills are rolling in...on those days when it all just seems so hard, we'll have this to remind us of those first moments when we fell in love. And if sappy, detail ridden love stories are your thing, well then you've come to the right place." -Ashley Stock

Summer 2010
***

Since adding Jordan and Tessa (who, by the way, are my two best friends for those of you who don't know) on Facebook the previous summer, Parker had talked to both of them a few times throughout the year. He had other girls in Ohio that he had dated over the year, so neither Jordan nor Tessa occupied his thoughts too much. They were just nice girls for him to chat with over the internet, but when he did talk to them, he always had fun and was his funniest most witty self. He had plans to go to Cardston again during the summer of 2010 to go on 'Joseph's Legacy' with the youth his Grandparents' stake. He and his sister, Rylie, went to Canada about a week before the trek was to begin and during that week, Parker's grandma kept telling him that he should ask Jordan out.
