Wow, the last ten years has gone by so fast. After high school I went to BYU-Idaho for a few years. I didn’t know what to major in so I took a bunch of random classes until I got my associates. Then in 2008 I went on a mission to Houston Texas. I came home in February of 2010 and went back to school, back to BYU-Idaho of course…only this time I knew what I wanted to study, I majored in Elementary Education.

In 2011 I met a very cute guy named Troy Caldwell. We actually met on LDS Singles. (I said I never wanted to meet and marry someone from online) We talked for several weeks on the phone and online before we had our first date. Troy is from Utah and was living in Salt Lake at the time we met, so we met half way in Brigham City. We went four-wheeling and because there was still snow in the mountains I ended up getting thrown from the four-wheeler. So, I guess you could say I fell for him… We got married in October of 2011 and I moved to Taylorsville Utah. (Didn’t really ever want to move to Utah… but Troy is so worth it)  Troy was teaching Math at Hunter High School. 
I ended up going to school at Weber State University for a year, trying to finish my degree. I found out it would take 2-3 more years at Weber, and only one at BYU-Idaho. So I went to BYU-Idaho for a summer and graduated in Elementary Education in December 2013.

 I taught 3rd Grade for one year. During that year we found out we were expecting a baby boy. Our little boy decided he wanted to come early and he was born on July 7, 2014 at 26 weeks. He spent the first three months of his life in the NICU. He will be one soon, and we couldn’t be happier to have him home, safe and healthy.

Right now our little family is living in Perry, Utah. We just moved here in February. Troy is teaching 9th grade math at Roy Jr. High and I am a stay at home mom. We love life and our amazing miracle, Aiden.
