happy 7th

a while ago i was tagged by corinne and yesterday seemed like the perfect day to tackle this one. yesterday we celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary. and so, because yesterday has come and gone, today is the day.

1. Where did you meet your husband? i think the first time we met was probably at my mom's office. i think i was 16. his mom and my mom worked together and mike was they guy who cleaned the office at night. we probably met there. and no sparks. mike was married then. i guess the second time we really "met" was also at our mom's recently returned from my mission and mike recovering from a major motorcycle accident. this time mike was single.

2. What was the first thing you said to your husband? the first meeting, probably a shy hi. the second meeting was more like, what happened to you? (he had a cast on his arm, a huge cast on his leg and was hobbling on crutches.) don't ask him to tell his version of the story.

3. Where was your first date? a 4 hour dinner at baci. lots of talking, laughing and great food. getting me to go on that first date is quite the story. another time, i suppose.

4. Where was your first kiss? at mike's house.

5. Did you have a long or short engagement/courtship? pretty darn short! our first date was october 2nd. we got engaged on december 8th. then married on march 22nd. when it's right, it's right, right?

6. Where did you get engaged? my family had gone up to jackson hole to stay at a friend's cabin. mike came along. we were in town shopping and we went into the town square, you know, where that huge arch of antlers is? we were going to go "see the christmas lights" as mike told me. that's where he popped the question - down on his knee and all. i was shocked...seeing how we had talked about not getting engaged until after christmas. my whole family was in on his sneaky little plan. despite the surprise and shock, i of course said yes!

7. Where did you get married? the salt lake temple. it was a beautiful spring day. perfect.

8. And disasters during the special day? not that i can remember. everything was amazing. except for the fact that i didn't get any yummy dessert that we served.

9. Most special moment of your wedding day? being sealed eternally to my love. the feeling of knowing you are going to be together forever and that this is only the beginning. it is a feeling i still remember and still love.

thank you mike for 7 wonderful years. and thank you for loving me. i love you.

**if i had a copy of one of our wedding pictures i'd post it here, but i've yet to get those to my computer...maybe another day**
