Meet Us

We are the Garrisons
Ben and I went to High School together, Ben a senior, me a sophomore
I knew who he was, he didn't know who I was
I thought he was the perfect guy, the kind I'd like to marry someday
We met at a Young Single Adults activity on Jan 6th 2007
Where I beat him (and all the other guys) go-kart racing
That evening was our first date and our first kiss
We were married 7 months later, in the Salt Lake Temple on July 26th 2007

We lived in Provo for 8 months while Ben finished school
and I student taught 11th grade math at Mt. Timp High School
We spent the next summer backpacking South East Asia
We moved to San Francisco, California for Ben's work in Aug '08
We moved to Johannesburg, South Africa in Jan '09 
We moved back to San Francisco in Feb '10
We had our first baby girl July 23rd and she is the love of our lives

We moved back to Utah in Feb '11 and currently live in Ogden
while Ben is pursuing some entrepreneurial opportunities
and I am enjoying being a full-time mom and pro-photographer.

We had our second baby, Alex Benjamin, on September 10th, 2012
and bought our first home and moved to Highland in May of 2013.  We are absolutely in love with our house and area and can't wait for our future here.

Baby #3, Jace Kendell, surprised us with his appearance as well as gender on June 9th, 2014, and we love our little growing family.

We love to travel and have been to over 30 countries together
We play lots of games (Rook, Settlers, Ticket to Ride, and Sequence are our favorites)
We love cheap dates
(Ben loves cheap anything)
We love to watch movies at home
We enjoy Subway, Warrens, Little Caesars, and In 'n Out 
We love taking long walks
We love our friends
We love our family
We love the gospel
