Happy 7th Anniversary Baby!

Our first date was December 2nd..we think. I think we both knew we had met someone special that night. I walked down to the lobby to meet him and I thought I was going to faint. I knew the minute I saw him. I sent him home with a bit of red lipstick too.

After asking my dad's permission while my dad was in the ICU (notice he asked while my dad was medicated) a few weeks later, he proposed on July 8th. I have no idea what he said. I just remember seeing him go down on one knee and I said yes. Twice. I would say it twice again. Eleven weeks later we were married!

This is my favorite picture from our reception in Salt Lake City. Whoever took it and sent it to us, thank you! Every 15 minutes, "Can we go yet?" And here he is saying "LET'S GO!"

I love you baby. Seemed like it took you forever to find me but I'm so glad you did!


Thee I love, more than the meadow so green and still
More than the mulberries on the hill
More than the buds of a May apple tree, I love thee

Happy Anniversary...we celebrated our 25th in July and I wouldn't trade a minute! Well, maybe the minutes with the in-laws but that's another story for another day. LOL
