It's our anniversary! Hooray! Fifteen years ago Mike and I were married in the Los Angeles temple. And then we jetted off to Hawaii for our honeymoon, where Mike propped his little camera on a rock outside of our hut and snapped this picture. It's one of my favorite photos of us.

Fifteen years feels like a milestone. But it feels like we are just getting started, too. We are comfortable and generous with each other, and more forgiving than we used to be, I think. We've worked out some of the kinks and ended up loving each other more than we thought possible in the process. I'm proud of and grateful for the life we've created during these last fifteen years.

Here's to many, many more!


  1. ah! Happy Anniversary you two! We were married in the LA Temple too- but 18 years ago. We went back for our tenth and did sealings together- right across the hall from where we were married...was a special way to celebrate. Did you know they have temple housing at LA that you can rent for about $50 a night?

  2. happy anniversary! i love how you said you're getting more generous with each other. i have noticed the same in my marriage as it gets older and better! congrats!

  3. Thanks for sharing such an informative information.
