Dear Love,

Happy 6 Month Anniversary!

I cant believe its already been 6 months!! The time seriously flew by! It has been quite the ride and you my love are the only one in the whole world I could possibly imagine going on this crazy ride with! You make me  happy and want to smile and laugh, which are my favorite things ever. You love getting a rise out of me, just for the good reaction that I give, and I don't mind because it makes you smile. I love that you are so helpful to me and everything around the house! Your sense of humor and fun teasing make life around here exciting. I have loved all of our date nights! It is my favorite night of the week! I love cuddling in bed with you! I love the mornings where we take an hour to get out of bed because we are talking and laughing. I love when you eat lots of the dinner that I make. I love that you love ice cream and chocolate cake so much! You are handsome, kind, generous, hard working, righteous, funny, fun to be around, smart, wonderful and mine. :) 

Everything in the last 6 months hasn't always been roses, and we knew it wouldn't be. But we have both learned a lot and have changed for the better. We still have a lot of work to do but the good things in life never come easy or free! I'm willing to give it all I've got and more, because I LOVE you soo much! 

In the past 6 months, we have done a lot! We sealed the deal in the Salt Lake City Temple. Celebrated with family and friends. Went on a cruise to Mexico where we both got sea sick, but it was still a blast! We spent our first Christmas and New Years together. Bought our first apartment. Went to St. George on vacation. Finished a semester together. Bought our first car! You got a new job. We've spent a ton of time with family and friends. Had some fun dates! and the best part is...this is just the beginning! 

I can't wait for the rest of eternity with you by my side. I can't imagine it any differently! 
I love you  for forever and always!!

Its a....


Well not "new", as in straight from the lot, but new as in we just bought it!  From the sweetest old couple in the world I might add! They were so nice and it was such a tender mercy and so crazy how it all worked out.
So my car died. Its still dead for the time being. So we were running on one car, which is Scott's parents car. We needed to give it back because his brother was starting a new job and his sister just turned 16! Whoot whoot! and you know what that means!
We had been looking for so long. For a good car, low miles, within our budget...and that just wasn't working out so well. It was the night before we were going to check out a car. To be honest we were settling. It wasn't exactly what we wanted, but it was crunch time.
A last minute check on KSL before we went to bed was exactly what we needed. We stumbled upon a great car that had only been on for about 10 minutes. And if you know KSL, you know that the good stuff goes fast! So we hurried and called and set up a time to go check it out the next day. It sounded good and we were hopeful! Well after we called, he got about 20 more calls. In the morning he explained that to us and said "you better come as soon as you can!" So we did!
We checked it out and knew it was exactly what we needed and wanted! The older gentlemen had told his wife "I hope that young couple comes, I really want them to have it!" We came to find out that they were having trouble putting the ad up. They had been working on it for a few hours when they finally gave up. When we called, it came as a surprise to them because they didn't even know it had worked! I don't just think that was a coincidence. The good Lord knew what we needed and He was looking out for us. It came on right when we started looking online again!
They were sad to say goodbye to such a good car that had given them so many good memories. But they just bought a 2013 car, I'll think they will quickly get over it! But we told them we would keep in touch with them and soon create lots of memories for ourselves in that car.
We are so grateful for answers to prayers and for our Heavenly Father who is always watching out for us! We are also grateful for good people in this world :)

The most exciting part of it all is that we saved for it together, paid for it all up front... and its our first car together!! YAY!
