6 years

6 years ago today, after years of dating Josh and I got married. If things had gone the way we wanted we would have been married a year earlier and in the summer time in the mountains. But, since that didn't work, we had a beautiful January wedding at the Eldredge House in Bountiful. All of our family and our closest friends came to watch us get married. After came the pictures, and Josh's groomsmen couldn't wait to be done with those. They claimed they were hungry, later we really learned why they were in a hurry to have a break before the reception. Josh's best friends were his groomsmen, and my sisters and my two closest friends were my bridesmaids. Much to my photographers dismay (and aparently some family) my Maid of Honor was actually a Man of Honor.
Our reception looked so busy to us. We didn't go upstairs until it was time to dance, but everyone told us it was pretty packed, and the downstairs where we were for the line was packed the whole time. One of the ladies I worked with at the time ended joining the line because she kept wheeling herself over to me to ask "Diane's sister, you be back 2 weeks?"
After the reception we had a limo waiting for us and went home to our house. Thats when we saw why the boys had been so anxious to have a break before the reception. My Jeep was parked at my parents house until after our honeymoon, and Josh's car was at the duplex we had rented. The limo pulled into our driveway and we saw the decorated Civic under the carport. We had really thought we were going to get away with not having our car decorated. But it was cool that they did it, and even though we were starving and really wanted to go get some food, we didn't want to undecorate the car until morning when we could take pictures of it.
Our families came over the next morning and brought our gifts and we opened them with everyone there. The next day we left for Vegas.
Our weddind day was amazing, but the marriage has been so much better. It is amazing to be married to my best friend. He makes everyday very interesting with his jokes, songs, and dancing. He's an amazing husband and father and I'm so blessed to have him in my life. I'm looking forward to many more years with him. Love you honey!!! And thanks for cooking dinner tonight!

  1. I didn't realize it's been 6 years. That's crazy! We're glad Josh didn't get scared off by any of us and that he's part of our family.
