She said "YES!!"

This post is for my sweetheart.  You see, we have been married now for 14 years and in September it will be 15.  We have learned so much together and I am so happy that when I proposed to Michelle in June of 1997 that she said yes.  I tell her, "thank you for saying yes."  On that day she said yes to taking this magnificent journey here on earth and into the eternities with me.  For that I am eternally grateful that she is my companion on this amazing trip.  The picture I post today is of a little bed and breakfast in Midway, Utah.  Michelle and I have celebrated a couple of our anniversaries here over the years.  It works out great because it is such a beautiful setting to take such a beautiful woman.  Our anniversary generally coincides with Swiss Days up there so we are able to go and walk around the booths together to see all the different arts and crafts.  Spending time with my eternal companion and trying to make her happy is the greatest thing that I can do and brings about the greatest happiness for me.  I have changed a lot since getting married and all for the better I believe.  We do stuff together now that I would have never dreamed of doing as a single guy, but I find that it makes Michelle happy and that is what makes me happy.  We now are season ticket holders to Hale Theater and Broadway across America at Capitol Theater.  We watch period piece "chick" flicks together.  I now enjoy the arts and thanks to my wonderful wife's encouragement to do what I like and development my talents I have found a love of photography that I enjoy sharing with others.  I cannot wait for the many adventures that await the both of us as we grow old together knowing that we are sealed together for time and all eternity in the House of the Lord.

I love this quote by Germaine De Stael that states,

"Love is the emblem of eternity, it confounds all notion of time, effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end."
