I'll still love it

Three weeks of being married, and guess what? I still love it!
Earlier this week, a co-worker of mine asked me how married life was after being two weeks into it. I told him that I love it, to which he replied, "come talk to me in twenty years", and I just said, "I will still love it". But really, why would I get married if I didn't know that I would still love it twenty years from now. Yes, I know that there will be many challenges that will come our way, but one thing that I have learned in my short time of being married, is that I don't have to face these challenges alone. If we work together, we can get through anything. I know that any trial that we have had to face in the last twenty-one days of marriage are minuscule compared to whatever will come our way later, but I don't think that the team work hat we have accomplished in the last bit should be diminished just because we are still young, naive newly weds.
I know that I can take whatever comes our way because I will have my very best friend with me every step of the way, holding my hand. I am certainly the luckiest.

"I'm sadie, sadie, married lady"

Hello, friends! After a very long absence, I am back and ready to blog away.
On July 6, my love, Christopher and I were sealed for eternity (I don't think there is a more beautiful phrase, do you?) in the Cardston Temple. It was the perfect day. We had close friends and family there to share our day and the sun was out with not a bit of wind (a miracle in Southern Alberta!).
I am so excited to see all of the photos from my favourite photographer, my brother David. I've seen a few, and they are beautiful.
So, I've been a married lady for two weeks and it has been wonderful. I am amazed that I love him more and more each day. I am so excited to see what our future together will bring.
