Oh Happy Day

Jared is officially done with school! I should've mentioned this a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't... (I'm sorry Jared). His graduation and our anniversary were on the same day, so we went out to celebrate both events that night. I am so proud of him and his accomplishment! Here is a picture of one of the cards he got for this special occasion... I thought it was pretty fun.

Now on to the next big adventure!

Two Whole Years

Two years ago, on May 8th, 2007, Jared and I were married. I can't believe it's been two years, but at the same time, I can't remember my life before being Jared's wife!

Here are some highlights from our wedding day...

We were married in the Salt Lake Temple
Our wedding colors were pink and brown
The wedding luncheon was at the Memorial House in Memory Grove
We had a great photographer
Our reception was at The Gathering Place at Gardner Village
My bouquet was a combination of roses, tulips, peonies, and renuculas
My mom made my wedding cake
My wedding dress had a white sash that was switched to brown for the reception
One of my best friends flew in from Florida, and my sister in law and nieces came from Washington
We had a candy buffet with all sorts of fun pink and brown candies
The weather was beautiful
My hair actually stayed curly the whole day
We saw so many family members and friends
We flew to Cancun the next day and spent a week there for our honeymoon

It was the best day ever!

The Best Birthday Ever!

Last Thursday was my birthday. It was a delightful day. Children were excited to tell me happy birthday and sing me songs all day long at work, we went to dinner with my favorite people (the Olsen and Wilcox families), and had them over afterward to hang out and open gifts. The day was great, and Jared gave me the best present ever. He got a new job! When he told me I cried, laughed, and breathed a sigh of relief. We consider ourselves so blessed to have this new opportunity.

We know that Heavenly Father is mindful of us and heard our prayers. We are so grateful for all of the support and prayers on our behalf, and can't thank those around us enough for giving us kind words and advice through these few weeks.

Jared will be working in the HR department at a company called DWG and associates. He already has great experience in this field, and he enjoys this type of work very much. I know that he'll do a fantastic job with this new company, because he is such a hard worker, a great learner, and he's pretty smart too. I'm pretty lucky to have him!
