8 Great Years!

Happy Anniversary to you Derek--you lucky man you!



And, now for the top eight reasons you're the perfect man for me:

1. Just my height! I never have to stand on my tippy toes to kiss you and I never have a sore neck from giving you a kiss.

2. You make me laugh.

3. Your deep thoughts--I wish that we could share these before 11 pm at night, but there's something about going to bed that makes us philosophical.

4. Your kindness toward me. You've never yelled at me and you always say sorry first.

5. You balance me out even when I don't like it. I want dessert and you want more of the main course, I want chocolate and you want water, I want to be mad and you make me see the other side, you're the big picture thinker and I'm all about the details, etc.

6. You are such an incredible dad and huge supporter for me as a mom.

7. You're always trying to improve yourself. You never make me "just deal" with how you are. You always try to be a better person.

8. You love BYU football and really, the rest is just details.

Love you!

Congratulations! Our 10 year is coming up next month and we're taking a week off to celebrate somewhere without the kids. Now if we could just figure out where we want to go...

All that flattery AND you look like a Russian Bond Girl--I definitely got the better end of the bargain. Thanks for marrying me.

I feel kinda slided...I think I provide most of those things for you (all but the kissing part and I don't make you talk to me at 11pm)and you haven't recognized me in a blog post. It's been almost 6 great years since we've known each other. Just kidding-Happy Anniversary you two! Guess what else? We are moving over by you guys very shortly.
