Meet my Boyfriend, Just Jed

About two years ago, I received my first letter from Elder Young. He was in the MTC and told me that he wanted to focus 100% on the work, so he wanted me to know that he loved me and wanted to be with me once he came home (which btw, seemed an eternity away), but from then on his letters would be strictly "business."

business.

business?

I cried and cried and cried. I don't even know why. But BOY, did I cry a lot that week. Well, from time to time his letters would linger away from "business" and he would fill my mind and heart with hopes about our future.



That future is finally here. Two years later and everything is exactly the same... except everything is different too. Elder Young has morphed into this hilariously awkward character I like to call "Just Jed."

Just Jed has a lot of the same characteristics of Elder Young. They're pretty much the same person even. It's just that Just Jed and I can be together, whereas Elder Young and I could only dream of being together.



I just got off the phone with Just Jed... and I can't even begin to tell you how amazing his laugh is. I love making him laugh. It's so easy. I basically just answer the phone and we both laugh for the next hour or two.

Just Jed is suupper skinny and tall-- 6'3. If any of you know me, you KNOW I love em tall and skinny. He and Elder Young are totally like identical twins! Did i mention he's ridiculously handsome? Blue eyes anyone?

Elder Young


Just Jed is solid. My boyfriend can bring spirituality to any trying circumstance or sad story. Elder Young was like this too, and it's something I always loved, so I'm really glad that Just Jed does this too.

Just Jed does something that Elder Young never did. Just Jed says "I Love You" every single night. I say it back with every ounce of meaning my speech impedimented voice can muster without sounding totally weird. That's something I never said out loud to Elder Young either.

The funny thing is I just saw Elder Young a couple of days ago. We shook hands and made eye contact across the room, but I knew it could never work. Just Jed? Well, I haven't seen him since October 3, 2006, and even though it's been ages, literally, I know it will work. It is working.



And he makes me

so

happy happy.
