Throwback Thursday: 27 Years Ago Today, I Married My Best Friend


John graduated from Brigham Young University exactly one week before our wedding.  We were young, in love, and had our lives in front of us. 


Neither John nor I remember what we did last Thursday.  We are not as young (the need for reading glasses does not make one old, right?) [though perhaps a declining memory does!], but we are exponentially more in love, and still have forever in front of us.

Happy anniversary, John!

  3. Happy Anniversary! What a blessing to be "exponentially more in love". May you have many more years together on earth before the eternity part.

  4. Congratulations! Beautiful photo. Curious...where did you get married? Unless my memory is worse than I thought, that's not at BYU. :)

    1. Good job for recognizing that isn't the Provo temple! I guess I should have put in a few more details. We met in Provo at BYU, but chose to be married in the Seattle temple. I grew up in Oregon, and at the time, the Seattle temple was closest for my family. The church has built many more temples since that time, and now 85% of Mormons live within 200 miles of a temple.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
