She is the best dog ever and we love her soooooo much. Im thankful for my house and Im thankful for all those who have contributed to building it. Im thankful for our friends. Im thankful for my job and Im even thankful for all those guest who feel it necessary to complain to me. It makes me work harder to fix any problems. Im thankful for my husbands job and the fact that he can provide for us. Im thankful for trials in my life. Right now its hard to see why I have to go through some things but I know that I will be blessed in the end. Im thankful for our new neighbors who are extremely nice and Im thankful for our new ward. Everyone has been so welcoming. Im thankful for all other things that I cannot think of right now!!!!!!
We started dating in May of 2006, right as Derek got home from his mission and I was graduating High School. His sister set us up on our first date. After that we hung out EVERY DAY! On August 25th, we went up to the cabin with our families for dinner. Derek and I saddled up the horses and went for a ride. We came to a tree with a rose hanging from it. Tied to the rose was my ring. He asked me to marry him and of course I said yes and we were married for time and all eternity in the Temple on November 24, 2006. It all happened really quick, but we knew we were meant to be.
