9 Years & Counting


Today marks the 9th year Stewy & I have been married. I am so grateful for how clear my memory is of the day we met and what a blur the weeks leading up to our marriage were. Here we are today laughing at those memories and laughing at the horror our parents were probably in when we married only 10 weeks after meeting. I am still so in love with you Stewart and I am more thankful and humble today for you being in my life. We have had more than our fair share of roller coasters and I look forward to many more. Thank you for our moldy ceilings, green refrigerators, soapy stir fry, "N" Movie Night, blue spandex, flag football mom moments, inside out socks, hot huts, yellow bathtubs, wet pajamas & blowing fans, BYU football games, pinewood derbys, first houses, freedom from loud neighbors, halloweens, schmoozing parties, Saturday lunch dates, burning forests, blizzards, hikes, warm bubble baths & lime popsicles, first kisses, patience, understanding, laughter, tears, our children, noni, sisso wisso, tiny tiny, christian boy, your strength when I had none, your belief in me, teaching me, guiding me, letting me know what it means to be loved, mistakes, & successes. Thank you for giving me all of you! Happy Anniversary Babe, I love you!

Yes it was a fast 10 weeks, but we pulled it off and do not regret one minute of it. Always remember the memories that is what it is all about - the good, the bad and that in between. Happy Anniversary.

Wow that is so incredibly sweet and hilarious too! Um... I think a few of those memories need some explaining like the blue spandex and burning forests! Sounds like some funny stories! Happy Anniversary!!

Thats awesome. I hope we make it that far. J/k So next year you have to do something crazy special. A decade being married. everyone deserves something for that accomplishment.

Paul & Daneen said...

Oh, I'm so sorry we never got to hook up. I feel awful about it. My fam is very demanding. Especially when I live on the other side of the country. They want all my attention. No excuses though. I really wanted to see you. Next time for sure. I owe you. I'll take you out for lunch or something.
