Laie Hawaii Temple

Eight years ago today, Cameron and I were sealed in the Laie Hawaii Temple for all time and eternity. We rushed to the temple that morning after Cameron's last final and made our vows together in front of close friends, family and God. Eight years ago we chose each other forever. Although it hasn't always been glitz and glam, we are surviving and finding joy in the journey (I'm pretty sure that is the definition of marriage).

Thank you for being the man that you are. For having an awesome family, (you really can't take any credit for this one) whom I love. For being even tempered (although it can be annoying), for working hard to support our family and for always putting us first. Thank you for going along with all the little plans I have and plan with out letting you know. For dealing with my crazy. Thank you for being able to fix cars, bikes, sinks etc. and build whatever I want. For having lots of hidden geek talents that come in so handy. Thank you for loving to be a kid like me, and acting so goofy. For daydreaming and spending time talking and wishing that we could be in Disneyland again. For having big dreams and goals and for seeing them through. I have NO doubt that you will accomplish all that you want to. I hope that you instill these characteristic to our children. Thank you for being so patient with them, when Lord knows I can't. Thank you for being a good father, for loving them and watching them to give me a break. Thank you for always having my back in parenting. Thank you for honoring your priesthood.  And thank you for understanding and supporting my love for volleyball. We may not be the most lovey, dovey couple, but we are without a doubt best friends! You are the first person I can't wait to tell all my drama or good news to. The shoulder I cry on, the one I laugh with and my everything. I am so thankful for you and our three beautiful, crazy children.

Here's to 8 crazy years, and a million more to go.

I love you!
