Today's Topic: The Story of My Spouse, How We Met and Got Together. I blogged this topic back in February on our anniversary, so go read all about it, and then come back here for more My Life Monday excitment.
You know what was missing in that story? Pictures! Well, there were two, but here are some more. The first two pictures are from our trip to Las Vegas. Never mind my hoochie shorts and fat thighs. I've got better fashion sense (and thinner thighs) now.
These pictures were taken at the Oakland Temple when my sister-in-law got married and just weeks after we met. We knew at this point that we would be getting married too, but nobody else knew.
This next picture is of our beloved old car. When I first met Steve, he drove a dark blue New Beetle, but shortly after (just a week, I think!) we traded it in and bought this Reflex Yellow New Beetle. It is a Limited Edition color and only 2000 were made. We loved this vehicle. Some of my fondest memories were driving around in this car with the windows down, hair blowing, and singing along to the radio. We traded it in for a family car just before Little Boy was born. We still miss this car! Last year, we were visiting the city where we traded it in and found it on a used car lot--we knew it was ours because of the custom wheels that Steve loved so much. If we had the money, we would have bought it again!
I hope you enjoyed the short picture tour of the first month of our courtship. It was a whirlwind of excitment! Steve has much shorter hair and I have much less weight, but we have much more love than ever before!
