9 years and eternity to go

September 18, 1999 was the best day of my life. Justin and I were married in the Las Vegas Nevada Temple for all time and eternity nine years ago today. Planning the wedding, as I recall, was quite easy. We didn't fight. I don't remember crying or turning into any sort of bridezilla. Mom and I got along throughout the entire process. The only thing I remember having a problem with was finding the last bridesmaid dress since we bought them at Ross. We drove to four different stores here is town in the dead of summer and ended up at the first store to look one more time just incase we missed it the first time which we had. The shoes they wore looked awesome in the picture but weren't very comfortable but the girls wore them as long as necessary without complaints and really who can complain when they were only five dollars a pair. The day before we set up  the reception and the next day got up early got my hair done drove to the temple, dressed and waited for the sealer to call us in to be sealed. Justin being a nervous person was pacing back and forth back and forth back and forth. They finally came to get us and Justin said, Let's just do this."  I know romantic right. But what matter's is that we were married that day in front of family and friends and angels in the right place for eternity.

We have never been happier than we are right now. As we sat the other day and watched the kids play in the backyard we both looked at each other and said the same thing . Life is so good. It's like that song on my playlist "The Riddle" by The Fray. "There's a reason for the world you and I". That is how we feel. We may not show it all the time like others but that is how it is.

I was at Jenessas house today and was able to see Justin come home with an edible bouquet. He kissed her and looked right through her eyes into her soul. And said I love you. It totally made me cry. You two are amazing together and I love that you are both so happy. Many more happy years are to come for the two of you. I love you both.
