3 years. 3 years ago today i was in a very sacred temple staring across an altar at my love promising to love him and stand by him throughout this life and throughout all the eternities. i once told one of my non mormon friends that we believe in my Church that when we get married, we believe that we will be married not just for time, but for eternity and that death will not part us. his response was "that's actually really beautiful."
and it is.
i don't think there is anything more sacred or more beautiful than eternal marriage.
whenever i hear of a close friend of mine is getting married, i get very envious because i wish i could live my wedding day all over again. it was so wonderful but also had its scary moments like when i was so terrified i almost called it off.
but man oh man am i glad i married taran. i would do it again in a heart beat. it was the best decision i have ever, ever made. i really can't believe how lucky i am. he treats me better than i ever thought i would ever be lucky enough to be treated. all i want to do is hang out with you and make you happy. you make me laugh harder than anyone else.
i love his thirst for learning. i love his thirst for learning. i love how he pushes himself with his engineering consulting business (curious what he does? website here. i did a good job doing the content and over seeing the design if i do say so myself :)) i love that he can't wait to be the kind of dad that teaches his kids science and makes sure they are smart and knowledgeable and pushes themselves the way he pushes himself. i love the way he is around children. i can't wait to see him be a daddy to our kids one day.
i love his deep and strong testimony for the gospel of our Church and the close relationship he has with God. i love that he knows all of my flaws and loves me anyway. i love that he knows when i am in a certain mood and how to fix it.
i love how much he loves his parents and how much he respects them. i love how much my family loves him. i love how much everyone loves him without him even trying to win everyone over.
i love that he always puts me first and sacrifices so much for me without asking for anything in return. i try to do the same.
i love that he made this leap with me and moved to LA so i could follow my dream and supports me wholeheartedly in this crazy dream of mine.
taran, you are a dream come true. i love you to the moon and back. thank you for being mine.
happy 3 years, baby. here's to a million more.
