Ten Years Ago

Guess What Shawn brought Home?


I was doing laundry and in walked Shawn home early from work with 10 dozen roses!!  One for each year we’ve been married.  What a sweet-heart. 

Married August 4, 2000

I can’t believe it has been ten years!  The time has just flown by.  Shawn says he doesn’t remember ever being single, but then, he doesn’t remember anything. 

Eleven and a half years ago I was invited to go to Lake Powell with a friend.  I met some wonderful new girls who needed a roommate and I needed a place to live.  I went to see their place and met Shawn the same night.  I new when I saw him I would marry him.  It took him over a year later to realize he needed me.  He proposed to me on May 17, 2000. 

Shawn always joked that he would buy me a ring from a candy machine.  When my engagement ring conveniently went missing from the jewelry store,  Shawn bought me a $.25 one from the toy ring machines in the mall.  Out popped my real ring!!

Our temple ceremony was really great and surprisingly funny.  Every one laughed and enjoyed themselves.  Shawn even passed me his gum over the alter.  Years later I had someone tell me it was the best ceiling they had ever been to. 


Fun memories.
