Anniversary Weekend

Troy and I celebrated our two year anniversary this past weekend! It was on the 21st the day of the alleged rapture. I'm sure glad there was no rapture. That probably would have put a damper on our weekend!

On Saturday our anniversary (aka the rapture) Troy and I woke up in the morning and got massages while our awesome neighbor Kristin watched Izzie. It was the most awkward massage of my life. My massage therapist kept using her elbow to get the knots out of my back so her face was really close to my head and she kept swallowing really loudly. I couldn't relax.

In the afternoon our little family had the opportunity to go up to the Bountiful Temple and be sealed. It was a really nice ceremony. Except Izzie screamed and I mean screamed the entire time. You could hear her as they brought her down the hall. I couldn't even hear what the sealer was saying over her screams. She was so tired and super hungry. She was supposed to eat while I was getting ready so I gave a bottle to the temple workers at the youth center but she wouldn't take it from them. So she arrived to the sealing tired, hungry and really really mad. It makes for a fun memory though!

And now for the mushy gushy ooey gooey part you can skip... I love my husband. Seriously he is incredible. He is the hardest worker I have ever known. He goes to school full time and works full time. And then we he gets home he still takes the baby to give me a break. I love walking in to our room and he's holding izzie on his lap and reading to her from one of his school books. He's way too good to me. He gave me a much too generous anniversary present and I didn't get him anything because I thought we had discussed not exchanging gifts. I sat there crying because I didn't get him anything and he reassured me it was ok and that I deserved this present. He puts up with me, he supports me, he teaches me, he loves me, he is my everything. I seriously don't know what I would do without him. He is the only person who has made me feel safe in my entire life. I love knowing I can count on him for anything and everything.

I love you Troy. I'm so glad that you are mine forever and ever.
