About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

January 19th, 2002

As I sit here on this relatively warm January afternoon (yes, I am still in Nebraska), it is hard to believe that 7 years ago today, I was dressed in white and FREEZING to death on the grounds of the Boise Idaho temple having my pictures taken with my new eternal companion, Jeremy. I never thought that day would come, and now it has come and gone so quickly. I can't believe that life could be so happy and frustrating at the same time. I know through it all though, that I married my best friend and that no one in the world could give me such joy. I love Jeremy more then I thought possible. He is such a kind, caring, loving, patient, understanding, forgiving man who sees the absolute best in everyone. Maybe that is why I somehow ended up being his wife! Lucky me! So today, I am letting my best friend forever know that I love him more then anything else and I am looking forward to forever, eagerly!

The following pictures are in chronological order...
Yeah, I know, he is taken and aren't I the luckiest girl alive!

Love the wedding pictures! Do you have anymore that you can show? I think those are the only ones that I have ever seen. You guys are awesome and great examples!

It's so amazing to see the happiness in your faces in every picture. What happy memories for you! You're only a few years ahead of me in family experience, but it's so crazy to imagine where we'll be when we have three kids and a couple more married years under our belts. I think it's everyone's dream to be as happy as you. :)

Awww! Aren't you just adorable! I love to see your pictures... they are fun. On a side note... I remember that truck! We had some crazy times... like driving the wrong way down a one-way street or stalling out after driving through the flooded parking lot like crazies!! ha ha ha It looks like life hasn't slowed down much, it has just added new character and new adventures.

The silly red shoes and Jeremy's bright orange shirt are awesome!

Happy Anniversary!
