5 years and going strong...

(day 67)

Happy Anniversary to Steve and I! :) It's been 5 years and 2 kids later now... It's gone by so fast, but I also can't remember life without him! Here are a few dating pics before Steve's mission, so we were 18 in these.

This was on the second date, Steve met my family...

At Bridal Veil Falls in Provo Canyon while we were dating...
I went to Chicago to stay with him and his family that summer before he left on his mission (2000). We had just gone to the Oprah Show here and were in front of the Shedd Aquarium on Lake Michigan.
Saying goodbye at the airport for the last time before his 2 year mission.
7 months after he returned from his mission, he proposed...

Our engagement photo...
Our wedding day!

Tonight Steve left the office early and showed up at home with some gorgeous flowers. Then he took me to Flemings in SLC for dinner and then a little shopping afterwards. It was a fun evening and a perfect night just to be with the love of my life.

Here we are tonight! After 5 years, we are still in love and going strong... I really am living the fairytale.


Did I mention that we also have been blessed with two of the most beautiful children ever?? Yeah, all that in just 5 short years. We count our blessings every day...

Congratulations! Love all the dating & wedding pics. I love Chicago. It's one thing I miss about living in the midwest. Though, I never go to an Oprah show.
