I (Lauren) grew up in Vernal, UT and Barrett is from Hill, New Hampshire. We met our first year of college at Weber State in August of 2000. We lived on campus and our rooms were in the same hallway only separated by two doors, which were usually propped open. (Why they let boys and girls live like this I do not know, but we thought it was fun.) We dated for two years, then Barrett went on a mission to Tallahassee Florida. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Sonography (I'm an ultrasound tech) in Dec 2004. About a month after Barrett got back he moved back to Utah for about five months until we were married in May 2005. Barrett is an RN and is going to go on to be a Nurse Anesthetist. Our beautiful daughter Reese was born April 2, 2008, just about three years after we were married. We decided to create a blog after she was born to show her off for one thing, (isn't that one of the main reasons that we all have blogs?) but mostly so our family in New Hampshire who don't get to see her can at least see pictures. But of course we love to share our lives with all of our family and friends.
