Thirty years and a day ago this lady had me.
But really, it all starts with this guy.
Mom and Dad met in Mississippi. He was there in the airforce, she was a rebelious twenty-year old with very short skirts who came to live with her aunt (of the exact same age - Mormon family) to get over a bad relationship with her bad biker boyfriend. It wasn't love at first site.
Too many girls were apparently chasing my dad and my mom seemed to be the only one who couldn't care less about him. So he asked her to...the hardware store. How very romantic.
Long story short, they fell in love.
But this was three years later and after Mom moved back to Salt Lake, dad got engaged to another girl, disengaged from that girl, Mom sent off a missionary and Dad kept calling "for some weird reason" (Mom's words).
And then they had me...OK, first they had Sam, THEN they had me.
That's me with my little brother Seth and big brother Sam, on my 6th birthday.
Thanks mom and dad, for bringing me into this world with you.
