9 Whole Years


Diet Coke addict

So, not a ton has changed since Ace and I were married 9 years ago today.  I’m still drinking Diet Coke (I just prefer it from the fountain rather than the bottle).  Over the summer and a little into the fall, Ace whittled down to the weight he was in the above picture…and I happened to put it all on—partly because I’m expecting twins, and partly because of the whole Diet Coke and Oreos obsession…

Last night, on the way home from town, I was telling Gimme, Mulligan, and Birdie about the wedding day, the temple, luncheon, reception etc. Gimme and Birdie were totally into it, asking all kinds of questions about how I got to the temple, what color the flowers were, who was there, etc. 

Finally, as we turned onto our road, Mulligan pipes up and says, “Mom, we’re almost home.  Will you quit talking?” 

Oddly enough, I could sense Ace’s desire to reach back and give Mulli a high 5.  He just doesn’t appreciate trips down memory lane like I do.

But I will say this, 9 years ago I didn’t think I could be any happier than I was right then, but guess what?  I am! 

Here’s to another 9+ years!
