My wonderful husband, Tom

I love Fall! I love the colors, the weather, the smells... basically I love everything about Fall! Tom and I were able to go up to the canyon yesterday. It is so beautiful right now! For some reason Fall always reminds me of when I was single and living in "The Party Barge". I had great roommates who taught me so much about myself and how to be a better me. And although I had so many great times with my girls I was so anxious to meet the man I would spend eternity with.

Enter Tom. We had known each other for about 9 months before he asked me out. We had been flirting with each other just for fun (we were both interested in other people at this point.) I am so grateful for that time we had to get to know each other as friends. Our first date was so much fun! He was so easy to talk to and be myself around. He started winning my heart on that first date! And the rest is history.

He is such a wonderful man and husband! I am eternally grateful to our Heavenly Father for allowing me the privilege of marrying my best friend. I could honestly spend all day everyday with Tom and be perfectly content. I love spending time with him. I am grateful for all he does for me... especially working a job he hates so he can help support us. I am grateful for his unconditional love and his easy-going attitude. I am grateful that he (for some reason) thinks I am beautiful and tries to get me to see that in myself more. I am grateful that he will someday be a wonderful father to our children. I will take great delight in seeing him hold our newborn... you see, he is afraid he will break little ones :) He makes me want to be a better wife, daughter, sister, friend and woman. I am so grateful for him. I love him the mostest of the mostest cuz he's the grandest of grandest prizes.
