Guest Post: Meet Mrs. Autumn!

My second guest poster of the weekend is Autumn from Stay gold, Autumn. I found her blog pretty recently and it is inspiring, honest, and so sweet. I love reading her posts and seeing the beautiful pictures she takes. I love hearing about her marriage and her life after college. She was married in the Mesa temple {same place Race and I were married!} almost a year ago and she's here to share the adorable story of how she fell in love with her husband.

My name is Autumn.  I'm a first year teacher and a graduate student who is married to...another graduate student.

This is the story of when I knew I had fallen in love with my husband.

I met my husband on a blind date that took two years to set up.  A month after that date Devin took me skiing for an accounting recruitment event.  At this point I was still largely in denial about even wanting to date much less going on the same dates with the same person.

It was the first time I had really seen Devin interact with people and I remember a recruiter coming up to him and asking if he was an avid skiier.  To be honest, it was Devin's first time and I was showing him.  The man said: "My first day of skiing...I wouldn't be smiling like that.  You must always smile."

To be honest, that was also my first impression of him.  Always smiling.

When we walked to his car he opened the backdoor and handed me a blanket..."I packed this blanket because you're always cold and I figured this would help."

I smiled and he helped wrap it around me before I sat down in the car.

He closed my door and walked around to his side.  I remember thinking "he will always take care of you" and I knew it.

That is when I realized I had fallen in love.

We were married a little shy of Christmas that year.

We picked somewhere warmer.

I loved Autumn's story! And I hope you all did too. :] It's so great having someone to take care of you. Also, Autumn, I absolutely love your wedding dress--GORGEOUS! Thanks for posting on my blog today and sharing your sweet love story. Now everyone head over to Autumn's blog and read more about life after marriage. And be prepared to be inspired!


  1. Such a great post! I love Autumn. We were in the same ward at BYU once upon a time. She and I actually got married on the exact same day. Different temples, but the same day. :)
