And Today makes 5..... YEARS!!!

Time has flown by soooo quickly. I can't believe its been 5 years since we've been married. I feel truly blessed to be married to the love of my life. I love the face that anytime someone asks us how long we've been married, we both answer 2 or 3 years. Then we think about it and realize that its actually been 5. TJ took me to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants here in town called Sakura's. It's the closest thing to decent seafood offered here in St. George. In the past 5 years of marriage, we've done some really crazy things together. Made some extreme decisions about life. Had great times.... and really really bad times.... But we experienced them all together. Some of the madness that's happened so far:

  1. We were able to get sealed to each other for time and all eternity in March 2008.

  2. We moved to St. George on a whim within 48 hours in November 2009.

  3. We've had 3 miscarriages so far. Not something I care to elaborate on, but it is something I don't want to forget.

  4. Found out that TJ has sleep apnia. He now sleeps with a CPAP machine every night and I'm so happy for him because he can actually get a gopod nights rest.

  5. Found out that the reason we haven't been able to get pregnant properly is because of a brain tumor in my brain that tricks my body into thinking that its got to produce milk for a baby it thinks it should be feeding. Still getting this looked at constantly... I'm just happy I'm in Utah instead of California because the medical care here is much much better:)

  6. TJ loves downloading movies and is looking forward to more outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, and swimming in as many lakes around town as possible.

  7. TJ works for Cinnamon Hills as a youth counselor.Dora works as a Cable Product Specialist for Allconnect.

  8. Currently called Missionaries in the Mission Counsel at Church

  9. Met and hugged President Uchtdorf when he visited our ward.... one of the highlights of my life..... absolutely love that guy.

  10. Decided to start savings to take a vacation across Italy on one of the LDS tours:) I can't wait to post when that actually happens:)

I love you TJ and will continue to love you for Eternity:) Thanks for continuing to grow as a worthy priesthood holder, a greater husband, and a better friend. I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you......

5 years? Wow! That is a long time. I'm happy for you guys. Lots of ups and downs but you're going thru them together. That's the most important thing. I pray that things will work out for you guys especially your health issue sis. That's crazy. Never heard of that before. Wess had sleep apnea as well but he never got any help for it so I'm glad TJ can sleep better. Here's to 5 more years and to eternity. Love you guys!
