Fifteen years ago today I married my favorite person in the world. There were people who were worried that we weren’t a good match, that we wouldn’t last, and that I was too young to understand what I was getting myself into. We ignored the naysayers and were sealed for time and all eternity in the Las Vegas temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We’ve had our rough moments, but we have stuck by each other and we have grown up together.
We’ve come a long way in 15 years. We’re older and wiser. The way we started our life together was not ideal by some standards, but it was perfect for us. We are the same people we were then in some ways, and completely different in other ways. One thing is for sure, I am still in love with this man and can’t imagine my life without him.
As Mike and I talked about what we wanted to do to celebrate our anniversary we came up with a few ideas, but we both kept coming back to one thing. There are a lot of people who have left an imprint on our lives over the last 15 years. We would not be the people we are without each and every one of them. We want to celebrate not just the two of us sticking together for 15 years. We want to celebrate everyone and everything that has brought us to this point. We’ve got a rough idea of what we want to do. We just need to work out the details. So, keep your eyes peeled, because you just might see your name in lights soon.
