365 days of marriage

What an amazing year it has been. I can't imagine my life without Grant. He is truly my dream come true in every way. I have loved spending everything with him. Our love has matured in so many ways that I cannot explain. Being able to step away from everything this weekend and just focus on each other was everything that we needed. After listening to Conference and after reading a lot of the Nie Nie Dialogues, I have realized how important it is to be grateful for the small things. When I do this, I am filled with joy and I really feel that Life is just so sweet.


I am so grateful to the lord for putting such a special boy on the earth, Grant is an example to me in so many ways. He really is my hero. Sometimes I think back to the old days when we were just getting to know each other in 2005 and suddenly I am filled with butterflies. I can't believe he picked me!!! I'm even smiling as I type that. I just feel so blessed. He keeps me smiling and laughing every day.

I LOVE HIM!!!!!

Here are some pics of our wonderful celebration. I have to say Thank you

MOM for giving us such a cute little anniversary package (she is famous for always surprising someone with a fun little package for a big event, ours came with a bouquet of beautiful flowers, sparkling cider, garlic pull apart rolls, green beans and steak and cupcakes... so yummy!). Because our anniversary landed on the Sabbath, we stayed home and made a very yummy breakfast and dinner together. Monday we spent the night in Salt Lake and stayed at Hotel Monaco (love, fabulous decor.. my favorite!). Anyway it was perfect.


P.S. After eating at the most amazing Indian place in SLC Monday night, we ended up right where we took our wedding pictures over a year ago! We were trying to remember our poses, too bad we didn't have our photographer.

Happy Anniversary! hey, I have a question for you guys!...do you think you could ask your neighbors if they have gotten any of our mail? I think that Snapfish.com has our old address and I ordered some stuff from there. I thought I'd changed it but it says the were mailed and it's been a while. I will be up there the week of Nov 3rd if they have gotten anything I could just stop by and get it. Let me know K? Thanks!!
