Welcome to our blog!

Hello everyone! 

We've been thinking for a while that we should probably start a blog for Abe and I. This is Emily's old blog and we turned it around into our blog now. :) We really just wanted to start blogging so that Abe and I can look back on these posts and remember the memories that we've had so far in our life together. :) Some blogs may be awesome and fun, some may be more sad or sobering. Anyway, We're hoping the good outweigh the bad. 

For those who don't know much about us, let me give you some background on The Durfee's!

Abe and I have known each other since we were in kindergarten. I honestly remember playing together at Stansbury Park Elementary School. We'd play Mario and Luigi. He was Mario and I was Luigi. :) For those of you who grew up with us, I also remember the wood and metal playground. Does anyone else remember that playground?

Abe and I were pretty good friends throughout high school and while he was on his mission. We did have a little spark in high school but it didn't last very long. He was the first guy I ever held hands with (aww! precious!). We liked each other but he told me that he was going to serve a mission when he's of age and he didn't want anything to interfere with that. (bravo Abe!) He ended up going on a mission to Guatemala. I wrote him twice and he only wrote me once haha! I went to his farewell and his homecoming. 9 months after being home from his mission, we got chatting on Facebook one night and then we started talking more and more until he asked me on a date. April 28, 2013 was our first date. We watched Return to Me at a park. It was such a perfect first date. The next day, Abe came to church with me and my family. I honestly don't think any guy has wanted to go to church with me as much as Abe did. :) We went for a walk after church where he asked me to be his girlfriend. of course, I said yes! Then about an hour or so later, we had our first (and Abe's first) kiss. He was so shy and innocent about the kiss which made me like him even more.

2 months later, Abe proposed to me at the Bountiful Temple. It was also the day that my beautiful niece was born. It was such a happy day for a lot of people. Abe and I were then sealed in the Jordan River Temple on October 12, 2013. It was a beautiful, perfect day. I am so incredibly blessed to have such a wonderful husband in my life. Along with every marriage, there are ups and downs but with us, we have WAY more happy/fun/silly memories than bad ones.

Some of our hobbies that we like to do together are Geocaching, Netflix, video games, long walks, roadtrips, and being complete weirdos together. ;) Abe loves making knives and straight razors. He loves anything with bacon. His favorite foods are Bacon Bleu Burgers, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Country Fried Steak and Grilled Cheese w/ Tomato Soup. I love reading, listening to music, spending time with my family and playing with makeup. My favorite foods are Dorito Taco Salad, Arctic Circle, anything chocolate and Crepes. 

We hope that you will enjoy our blog posts. Some posts may be long, some short. We'll post soon!
