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: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
