Ten Years

So, it really has been ten years. Ten years ago yesterday since I married my knight at the Salt Lake City temple in Utah. I was telling my boys yesterday that it was our ten year anniversary. They asked if that was a big deal. Of course it is! That's a long time! Then I thought about how many times I've heard people refer to how long they have been married and make a comment about how they never thought they would make it this far. It occurred to me that I fully intended on making it this long with my guy. I just didn't think the time would go by so quickly.
So what do you get after ten years of marriage? Well, a lot of things. BUT one of them is not a photo taken on your own camera of the happy couple together. I looked through the entire year and came up with nothing. This is as close as it gets. We were sitting at the same table, enjoying the same child's birthday. This is also proof that our love is so strong that even the iphone can't interrupt ten years of bliss. I even think it's quite handy.


So far since we have been married we have lived in 6 states and added 4 new roommates. Next year we'll be able to up our states to 7, as we will be packing up yet another moving truck on Monday, and our number of roommates to 5, as we expect a baby girl to join our family in October. I get lots of huge grins and inquiries as I take my crazy boys in and out of stores this summer sporting my growing belly. Yesterday, one woman responded to me, "You sure are blessed." I proudly replied back, "I am."
Love you Trav.

You're getting another roommate!?!?!? AND, you're having a girl!?!? Now you finally get to figure out what girl moms find in the bottom of their washers. (I always think of when you asked that when I am doing laundry.) Britt, you are due soon, and I had no idea! October is a good time to have a baby. Nathan was born in October, and I like it. :) Oh yeah, wasn't Isaac born then? Anyway...you're amazing. Having a baby after all your surgeries? Are you surviving? You should call me sometime. It would be fun to chat. You can call me here in Norway on my TX phone. We kept the number. It's 281-973-4043. We are probably six hours ahead of you. I'm glad you married Travis. I remember your wedding very well. Love you to the moon and back!
