Fall 2007 Grand Rapids, MI

I can't believe it has been seven years. For some reason that makes me feel so old. However, I can't imagine life with out Andy. It seems as though we have been married our whole lives. For those of you who don't already know Andy and I met when I was only 18 years old. We met at Tahitian Noni International, where we both worked. We dated off and on for a year, then exclusively for 6 months before we were engaged. Something fun about us is that we were each others first kiss!! I guess we were both saving our first kiss for the right one. We lived in BYU married housing for 3 years while Andy was finishing up school. That is were Isaac was born in January 2003. August 2003 we took a huge step in our lives and moved across the country to Columbus, Ohio for Andy to attend OSU Medical school. There we really learned to rely on each other. It was my first time living away from my family and Utah. This was so good for our marriage, and it really helped us to grow up a little bit. Seth was then born Spring 2006. Andy worked so hard in medical school, I am so proud of him. He then graduated from Medical school in Spring of 2007. We now are in Grand Rapids, Mi starting a new adventure together. I never in a million years pictured us where we are at now when we first got married. The last seven years has been an adventure with ups and downs. But I am so lucky to have gone through it all with the love of my life. I feel very lucky to have Andy in my life. He is such a wonderful father and husband. Love you Andy!!!

Happy Anniversary! Isn't it weird to be on the other end of ten years (closer to ten than one)?
