We celebrated our 3 year anniversary this past Monday.  Steven got me this:

Now if only I had my own counter top to put it on...

I can hardly believe that it has been 3 years already!  I wish I could press the pause button; time goes by way too fast.

In honor of 3 years with my man here are a few of my favorite things about him:
  1. He is always so happy and even tempered.  I really have to push his buttons to make him mad.
  2. He falls asleep spooning me everynight and always says in my ear: "this is my favorite part of the day".
  3. If he could, he would live on the lake either fishing or playing with the boat.
  4. He LOVES babies.  We were at the Easter Pageant the other night and a young mom passed us (a total stranger)with her arms full of stuff and a baby.  Steven asked me, "do you think she would let me hold her baby until she puts all of her stuff down?"  I can't wait to give him his own someday!
  5. He loves clean sheets once a week just as much as I do.
  6. Everytime he comes home from work he finds me to kiss me hello before he does anything else.  Once I sat in a chair in the living room and he never saw me and he went up and down the stairs, in and out of our room, in the kitchen, in the laundry room, passed me 3 times and finally found me when I couldn't help but laugh.
  7. He's frugal, but not cheap. 
  8. He always has his priorities straight, and works tirelessly to make sure they stay that way.
  9. He knows what my potential is and never lets me forget it.
  10. He truly is my best friend.

Same Jersey

I love this! Mostly because its about Thatcher (my mom's hometown, where I went to junior college, where I met Steven...) And, my cousin Spencer is mentioned at the kickoff! Listen for the quote by President Uchtdorf at the end. I wish I kept that in mind as I come across people on a daily basis. I'm grateful for the youth in the neighboring town of Pima who years ago were a great example to Steven and helped him get baptized around the same time in his life as the kid in the video. It humbles me to think that a whole generation (our children) will have the gospel in their lives because of his decisions. I know his family has always been very supportive of his decision to become a member of the church because of the goodness they see in Steven. Its our prayer that they will some day make the decision to be converted as well.
