One Year Anniversary

Well, we officially have been married for over a year now. crazy how time flies! Some days I just look at Colten and think, really? is it true? am I really finally married to my best friend? ...wait you mean I'm not just still writing him while he lives in Africa? Right! It's so exciting to not be in that stage, even though--as crazy as it sounds--there are times where I miss getting those letters and every monday morning checking my email...but then that feeling quickly goes away:)
I love my hubby so much. I was teaching the Beehives in our ward on sunday and the lesson was "Marriage Standards" and I was so thankful that I was able to testify of the temple and what a blessing it is to be married there. I was so thankful I was able to talk about my husband and what an amazing guy he is. I got all teary-eyed, but I hope the girls heard what I was saying, because I feel so blessed, and I want them to feel the same way too.

I love that my husband does the dishes. (not every day, but enough that it's still special and I'm still so thankful for it)
I love that he is such a hard worker. He has basically built our house, I've been there cheering him on, I even learned how to grout tile, but it doesn't even compare to the time, blood, sweat, and (i dont think he's cried over anything yet.. haha) more sweat that he has put into our house. I'm so thankful to him for all he does. I just wish I could show him that more.
I love that he is a nerd! Cuz I'm a nerd! So it's a perfect match!
I love being married to someone who knows (way better than I do) how to be quiet. Sounds weird, but I've realized he is so good at knowing when NOT to say something, when to hold his tongue, and that's a trait I need to absorb from him haha.
I love that he makes me laugh.
I love how handsome he is. mmm mmm good.
I love that he forgives me so easily.
I love that he is a righteous holder of the priesthood, and that he lives his life in a way that he doesn't accept exceptions, (if that makes sense) he just does the right things.
I love how good my husband is, which according to, that means, "morally excellent, virtuous, and righteous."

9-17-2010. a good day. a grand day. the day I married my best friend.

Seeing as how Colten and I have an anniversary coming up, I was looking over my posts from this time last year and they are actually similar to how i'm feeling right now...I got a lot on my plate. Only this year, instead of school, work, and a weddin'---I got school, 2 jobs, and a house to be moving in soon. So i'm gonna copy my self-inspirational post that I did last year....

I WILL keep up on my homework/studies.

I WILL be patient while the house gets closer...and closer...and closer.

I WILL get all the stuff thats in our little casita out and into a new house before the end of this month...i hope. how does so much stuff accumulate?

I WILL keep going. :) sometimes that's all it comes down to.

I am so grateful to be married to a wonderful husband. I won't get too far on that one yet though, I'll do a gushy wushy mushy love post closer to our anniversary. with pictures. exciting. :)
