One year

A year ago today I started dating someone who I knew from the beginning I would marry.  I can't believe how fast time flies.  Now we have been married for 3 weeks with our little family of two boys and one on the way.  JK  on that one!  That will be at least a year before we add to our family.  But the baby hunger-ness is in full force!

Remii was different than the other guys I had dated.  And I had been set up on some pretty bad blind dates.  From the time me and Remii met we could talk about anything and everything for hours.  Most of our conversations we had were about the gospel and I loved Remii's strong testimony and love for it.  This was the kind of guy that me and my boys needed in our life.  And he passed my test of being temple worthy, remaining pure for his wife, and not having any issues with pornography.  And the fact that I could grill him with all of those tough questions and he still stuck around meant a lot too.  I probably shouldn't have brought those questions up on first dates but sheesh can you blame me?  Remii has taught me so many things over this last year and one big thing is that I learned how to trust again.  He will always honor our temple covenants and always lead our family in the right direction and center our home around Christ and the gospel.

The first picture we ever took together.

Over this last year we have experienced so many fun things together...

I am so excited for our next adventure and move to North Carolina in two weeks!  We have had so much fun together and I am so excited to experience all these things with my eternal companion.  :)
