6th Wedding Anniversary

We celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on the 19th. I can't believe it has been six years already! Where has the time gone? It feels like it was just yesterday that Andy and I were best friends and hanging out everyday after school. I married my best friend and well he has become an even bester friend over the years, if you can believe that. I feel so fortunate and blessed to have him in my life. He truly is an amazing man! I can't imagine what my life would be like without him.

We decided for our anniversary that we wanted to go to the temple. You know, reminisce about the adventures we have had in life so far and remind ourselves of the promises we made six years ago. It was a really good experience going to the temple on our anniversary and it is something I hope to do again. The closest temple to us is in Portland (two hours away), so we decided to spend the entire weekend in Portland.

I love to see the temple.

We also went to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. The museum was awesome! We spent hours looking at exhibits, doing science experiments, and touring a submarine. Yes, you read that right- a submarine. I went on a nuclear submarine when I was in middle school, but Andy had never been on one. He thought it was the coolest thing ever! After touring the sub, we decided that we would never be able to make it as crew members on a sub.

Dive! Dive!

My favorite goofball.

We had so much fun at OMSI! If we lived in Portland, we would definitely get a membership there. It's a great place to go on a rainy day.

Life is hard at times but it is so good! It's even better though when you have your best friend by your side. We can't wait to see what adventures await us in the next year.
