Sometimes, in the middle of an ordinary life...

...love gives us a fairytale! Six years ago today I was awake after a sleepless night and lots of girl talk. My sweet Mom was sitting in my dining room trying not to wake me (I'd have had to have been asleep for that!) and so I got up and visited with her. We talked about life, she gave me advice, and told me how grateful she was for Cory. She knew he would take care of me and that he was a good man. I was glad my parents could see that because it was so true!
Of course I couldn't eat, I was to excited to eat, but my sweet Dad thought I should eat something. So as I headed out the door to the hair place he passed me a string cheese and a boiled egg. Sweet Daddy! Thankfully my dear friend Kira had a slim fast in her car. It was probably easier on my tummy.
We got my hair done and met my parents at the temple. I remember that as we were walking out of the parking garage, I looked across the street and there he was! The man of my dreams, my happily ever after. He looked so good in his suit.
We walked into the temple that day together as two individuals and came out as one. The blessings of that day have carried on and I'm so grateful for a man who was able to take me to the temple and promise me forever. It was a glorious day, so cold that everyone else was in coats, but I was nothing but warm and happy. Even our videographer commented that he had never seen a more smiley couple. It's true! My cheeks hurt so much by the end of that day but it was worth it!
I love you R. You are my best friend and my favorite boy! Thank you for 6 amazing years and here's to forever!

I remember that day too! I WAS COLD!! The glow that emanated from you was unreal. I am certain you felt none of that frigid air! Cory is like a dream come true. I knew that from the first day you brought him to meet us. I am so happy you found him!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!

You guys are a wonderful couple. I'm glad you were already part of the family before you even got married, and I'm so glad I got to be a part of that beautiful day for you.
There's no better than forever. I'm so proud of you.
Love you guys.
