Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me??

So when you find the right person, get engaged and finally get married to the man of your dreams all you think about is spending forever with him! You think about everything that you'll do together, what you will share, where you will go, where you will live..........together. But no one ever sheds any light on the fact that for some reason you will be physically apart for a few days, weeks, for whatever your situation is. Well let me tell you about it.

It is LAME!!!

I don't like it one bit! Granted, I was the first one to take a little trip with my sister's and lovely Mother for the weekend at the beginning of the month and leave Spencer all by his lonesome in our apartment, but now he keeps leaving me!! Either way, it's sad. For some reason life for me has worked out like this.....

I was single for the majority of my first 20 years in life and was very good at being independent. I loved doing things myself and being in charge of me. I was never bothered that I did not have a special someone to share my life with until around Christmas time 2008. Only a few weeks after these strange feelings started who did I meet but the one and only Spencer Hill and the rest is history. Now after being married for four months, I seemed to have forgotten what it was like to be quite independent and having to rely on only myself when things need to be accomplished. When Spencer leaves its like I don't function right...


This was a strange realization that I had a few days ago and it makes me just that much happier when Spencer gets to come home. :) But this time I get to travel and meet him in Arizona for Thanksgiving! I am so excited to get a few days off and spend it all with my hubby and family.

Although Spence has been gone a lot this week, I am so proud of him for working so hard all these years to practice awesome studying habits and maintaining amazing grades so that he could fulfill his dreams of being a dentist. We have been so blessed to have been invited for some interviews and now its just the waiting game. And luckily when he does become a dentist... he probably won't have to travel very much! ;)

The Happiest Day of My Life

We got our wedding pictures back a few weeks ago and it has been so much fun looking through them and remembering our wedding day.  It wasn't very long ago, but these are some of my favorite pics because it reminds me of the little details of the day.  I married my sweetheart on July 17, 2009 in the Portland, Oregon temple.  It was such a beautiful day with perfect weather and the day even ended with a gorgeous sunset!  Talk about my dream wedding day!  The day included the wedding ceremony at 11am, a wonderful wedding luncheon, amazing reception, friends and family from afar, a bride dressed in white (ivory I should say...I know it's not white, but ivory matched the wedding better and I liked it on me better than bright white!), and a handsome groom. 

Pictures with all of the nieces and nephews (minus a few that were still in Utah and Texas).  This was the start of a crazy little photo-shoot!  But with 20+ little ones... they did fabulous!

My bridesmaids Monica and little sis Rebekah

I love this one!  We look like were in the jungle!

Spencer's brothers.... SO funny

My man is such a stud :)

All in all it was the perfect day and the definitely the happiest day of my life.  I love you babe!!
