Now two years and a baby later I couldn't imagine my life being any better. Miles is literally my best friend. We have been through the best of times and the worst of times (which, even then haven't been all that bad). For our two year celebration we went out to eat at The Melting Pot! SOOOO yuumy! Fondue is very romantic! I was very grateful to my in-laws for watching Winn. At dinner we were talking about some of our highest of highs and lowest of lows. All of which I have been so grateful for. We have grown 10 million times closer because of everything we've gone through. I'm so happy with how my life has turned out. If you were to ask me 5 years ago what my ideal life would be 5 years from then, I don't think I could have conjured up a dream like this. Miles has provided a life for Winston and I that is perfect. He is a real man and marrying him was the absolute best thing I could have EVER done. I admire so many things about him. Like his dedication to his school work. He has been presented with two really amazing awards this past year as the top business student which has also lead him to receive a full-ride scholarship for next year. Miles is also the biggest support when it comes to helping me accomplish my goals. He is always saying how proud and impressed he is by me and asking how he can help me accomplish where I want to go, helping me know that he will do what needs to happen to make my dreams reality. I couldn't ask for a better partner. I am also so impressed by his work ethic. Whatever he does, he does the best of his ability. By him working so hard, he has made it possible for me to stay at home with our little baby. He let's me have my dream job of a stay at home mom. Also, nobody can make me laugh like Miles does. That was one of the first things that made me fall in love with him...his sense of humor. He is so witty and clever and sometimes my face aches when I'm around him because I'm laughing so much. Last but not least he is a man of God. I see his true desire to learn more about and become like the Savior. He honors his priesthood and by so doing he becomes the husband and father that the Lord sees in him. What an incredible two years this has been. Life is meant to be lived with this man, to eternity and beyond :)

2 years BABY!
June 20, 2009 was a windy day in Denver Colorado. I remember it being a little overcast and a bit chilly. However the only thing on my mind was my handsome new husband! I loved everything about my wedding (with the exception of my hair, it didn't work right in the wind and I never really got a good picture). It was small but special. We had our immediate family all come out to Denver and a couple uncles, aunts, and cousins were generous enough to come as well. We didn't have a reception because my parents were still serving as mission presidents and couldn't leave Colorado, but we did have a nice little open house in Utah a few weeks later. My colors were "lemon yellow" and "lime green" which are still my favorite colors, but I thought it made for a fun summer feel. My cake was made by my brother-in-law and I LOVED it! It was completely his design and creation...totally awesome. My mom and the senior missionary couples in the mission did all the food. DELICIOUS! The night before the wedding we all sat down in a big circle and my family "warned" Miles and about me and his family "warned" me about him. We talked and laughed into the late hours. It was sooo enjoyable and a wonderful celebration. After the talking we gathered in close and Miles and I each got a father's blessing. It was such a special time for me to be able to transition from my father as the priesthood holder in my life to my new husband as my priesthood holder. It was a wonderful way to start out eternity with him. The Temple ceremony was absolutely beautiful. I LOVE the temple. Afterward was a yummy lunch where we talked and opened presents. Then my new Husband whisked me away to Telluride, CO for an awesome honeymoon!
