Five

June 3, 2011 in Anniversaries, Marriage, Troy - 3 Comments

Five years ago today, we embarked on the best journey. It hasn’t been the easiest journey. We certainly have our differences. But those differences make us more compatible and keep our lives interesting. I am so thankful for the journey that led us to where we are today. There are…

Phrases

June 2, 2011 in Anniversaries, Marriage, Troy - 8 Comments

In honor of our five years together, here are five phrases that I hear most often from Troy: 1. Literally. This is Troy’s favorite adverb. It is his go to word that denotes emphasis. For example, “It is literally going to rain every day next week.” Or, “I am literally…

Top Ten Highlights

June 1, 2011 in Anniversaries, Marriage, Troy - 4 Comments

There have been a lot of highlights in our five years of marriage. Here are our top ten (in no particular order): 1. Honeymooning in Mexico. 2. Graduating from college. I like that I was able to support Troy through two more years of school and contribute as the breadwinner for…

Two Years Later

May 31, 2011 in Anniversaries, Marriage, Troy - 3 Comments

After Troy and I spent our first year together, he was assigned to Riverside, California for two years to serve a mission. We both valued missionary service as one of the most important things a person could do and knew that it would strengthen our future relationship regardless of the…

How We Met

May 30, 2011 in Anniversaries, Marriage, Troy - 2 Comments

At the end of this week, Troy and I will be celebrating our five year anniversary. Five years is not much in the grand scheme of things, but we decided to kick things up a notch anyway (more on that later).  To lead up to our anniversary, I am dedicating…

Records

I have never been sentimental about “stuff.” All of those cute little scribblings and yarn necklaces my son brings home each week from Sunbeams go right in the trash (while he’s not looking). I condensed my entire array of childhood yearbooks, awards, programs, and memorabilia down to one box. If I…

May Flowers

The month of May for me means planting flowers and creating graduation slideshows. I have spent every spare minute the last couple of weeks working on DVD slideshow presentations that I create yearly for the school that I used to teach at. The slideshows are shown at graduation and contain…

Symbols of Marriage

February 14, 2010 in Marriage, Troy - 4 Comments

A wedding ring is a daily symbol of commitment and loyalty to the one you love. Troy lost his ring about six months ago. I wasn’t at all surprised. In fact, I was amazed that it lasted through more than three years of marriage! He took it off and played…

Golden Anniversary

Obviously it is not our 50-year golden anniversary, but if golden anniversaries were like golden birthdays, today would be ours. This June 3rd marks our 3-year anniversary. Another “3” to add to the crazy chain. It’s hard to remember what it was like to not spend every day with the…

March 3, 2009 in Dates, Marriage, Troy - 8 Comments

Exactly 3 years ago today, on 3/3, Troy asked me to marry him. Since I started this blog after we were married, I thought it would be fun to tell the proposal story. “3” happens to be a common thread amongst many dates in our lives. Troy unknowingly proposed to…
