11 years closer to eternity!!

Happy 11th Anniversary!
Gian and I were married in the Los Angeles Temple on April 25, 1997.
We have made such wonderful memories together.
I am so blessed to have this wonderful man in my life for eternity.
Gian is the most giving, forgiving, compassionate, kind, honest, hard-working, selfless, funny, and handsome man I know!!! I love everything about him....He is my hero!!!
(The picture above is us at the love tree at the temple. See how the branches make a heart shape around us? Love that!)

This is us at our reception. I have this little quirk about I can't eat it unless I have ice cream. Therefore, I had to have ice cream with our wedding cake. Isn't this bicycle ice cream cart the cutest???

And here we are 11 years later...a little less hair and a little more weight....but happier than ever! We have been blessed with 3 beautiful girls, loved and lost a dog, made and lost money, argued and forgave each other, laughed and cried, and much more. We look forward to lots of other opportunities and a whole eternity together.

I love you Gian!!!!

P.S. Happy Anniversary Matt and Megan Hess! (They share their anniversary with us!)

I love the last part of your post the most . . . the part about arguing and forgiving, laughing and crying, etc. So true. I'm going to have to copy that on my anniversary. Don't tell Paul.
