For Good

John and I saw Wicked when they came to Utah about eight months ago. I LOVED IT!!! and after John waiting ten hours in line for tickets, we knew it was totally worth the wait. I started listening to the sound track when John gave me the tickets for Christmas last year and absolutely fell in love with the music. I am one that really likes to pay attention to the words of a song because that gives it so much more meaning. There is a song on the sound track called "For Good" and it makes me cry everytime I hear it. John's grandma recently passed away in January and it makes us think of her everytime we hear it. If there is ever a loved one that has passed away in your life you'll love this song because it talks about how because you knew them you have been changed for the better. Here are the Lyrics...

I've heard it said
that people come into our lives for a reason
bringing something we must learn
and we are led
to those who help us most to grow
if we let them and help them in return

well I don't know if I believe thats true
But I know who I am today is because I knew you

Like a comet pulled from orbit
as it passes the sun
like a stream that meets a boulder
halfway through the wood
who can say if i've been changed for the better?
because I knew you,
I have been changed for good

It may will be that we will never meet again
In this life time
So let me say before we part
So much of me
is made from what I learned from you
you'll be with me
like a handprint on my heart
and now whatever way our stories end
I know you have rewritten mine by being my friend

there is more...just listen to it :)

One Year Anniversary

Well...can you believe it?! It's already been one year that John and I have been married. One year ago from today was the best day of both of our lives.

Last March 3rd was such a beautiful day. When you have your wedding in March, you can't be sure what kind of weather you will have. Mother nature is still trying to decide if it's Spring or Winter, but our wedding day was absolutely gorgeous! We were so lucky to have 70 degree weather with a little bit of wind. (as you can see in the picture below) We were sealed in Salt Lake Temple that day for time and all eternity and that's where the new chapter of our life began. One year later and here we are...no children yet. Just the two of us, having fun and enjoying our life, growing and falling more in love every day.

Many people say the first year of marriage is the hardest, well I would honestly have to say those people are wrong, and maybe that is because I have known John for so long. We would both have to agree that this year compared to many in the past was a piece of cake. Of course there are things you learn about each other or things you will disagree on, but all-in-all this year has been fantastic for us. I know there will most likely be hard times that come, but I feel that John and I are a strong couple and could truly overcome anything because we love each other so much. John is such a perfect husband for me. He makes me smile constantly, even if I am trying to be mad or upset, he always seems to be able to get me to crack a smile. It's been so much fun growing and experiencing new things together. He is my best friend! I am not very good at expressing my feeling and sometimes I don't think I let John know exactly how much I appreciate him and Love him. It's one of those things that you figure they just know. He has always been there for me no matter what. I love the way he looks at me, or teases me, or just simply says nothing at all, but will just listen to me go on and on and on. I know when we decide to have children he will be the greatest father. I can just See him with his little girls now...he will definitely be a push over, he will even tell you that. :)

I'm so thankful for the life I have been given and for the ability to recognize the many blessing I have in my life. No words can explain how grateful I am for John. Thanks for a great year bubby...I am excited to see what the future holds for us.

I love you,
