Provo, September 2005. A beautiful young BYU coed is working as a dispatcher for the university police department. One day, a devastatingly handsome man walks into the station and steals her heart. A few short months later they are married and live happily ever after. That young girl was me. And that hottie, was Adam.
Maybe I watch a little too much Golden Girls... I've decided to use my blog to chronicle the story of how Adam and I met, fell in love, got married, and all that jazz. I'm going to use it as a place to keep my memories fresh and share them with family and friends who didn't get the chance to meet Adam yet. I just love talking about Adam, so I hope nobody gets tired of hearing me
So, here goes. I heard about Adam several days before I actually met him. I was helping in the hiring process for some new people at the police department and I saw his application. As soon as I saw that he was a licensed HAM radio operator, I knew the supervisor (my brother-in-law, also a HAM nerd) would hire him. I also saw that he went to France on his mission and was a French teaching major. France wasn't very en vogue at the time, so I had to hide the fact that I thought that was way cool. I grew up reading and loving French novels (Victor Hugo, the Scarlet Pimpernel series which I realize aren't French, but they're about France. It counts.). Moving on.
The first time I laid eyes on Adam was in the waiting area of the police department when I went to get him for his interview. Honestly, I can't remember what I really thought of him. He was there for a job interview so I was focusing on if he'd be a good employee. I do remember that his tie didn't match his shirt, though.
Needless to say, he was hired, along with several other new recruits and I was in charge of training them all. It was at our second meeting that I realized he was an extremely cute guy. He came in to submit his availability for his work schedule and to set up a time for training, and I found myself flirting with him. (Adam later told me that he didn't think I was cute until this meeting either. He had been very nervous at the interview. He also said he could swear I had on a wedding ring... yeah, he checked.)
