Rylee and I met in Charleston on the same missionary team. I wish I could say that the sparks were flying from the outset, but I thought a good way to start a conversation was to point out how fidgety she was. Needless to say, we became fast friends. The missionary year was amazing and we made some of our best friends that year, but it was pretty rocky along the way. Rylee and I not only worked together, but we were the only members on our team to make it from the start of the service year to the end. I don't know what that says about us... Nearly halfway into the year, I got this obnoxious feeling that I enjoyed sitting next to her too much. Weeks later, I decided it was good idea to talk to her about this. It was all (uphill? Downhill? Whichever is the good one) from there.
