The Big 10

10 years ago yesterday John and I got married in the St. George Temple.  Looking back on it, ten years has flown by!  Of course, we have had our moments- as I am sure every married couple does, but for the most part it has been amazing.  I am having a hard time trying to commemorate this occasion on blogger.

I tried silly:

Here are a few highlights and some things we have learned over the last ten years:
  • Don't agree to do "a little" rapelling with Jared (especially the day before your wedding!).  Little to Jared means off a 250 ft cliff.
  • Erin is crazy on birth control pills- HUGE apology to everyone who knew me the first year John and I were married, those things have way too much hormones for me and I become a complete basket case on them!  I think I may have scares some of my college friends away from the whole marriage thing.  So, listen up!  Marriage is good!  Seriously good!
  • Being fiscally ultra conservative is a good thing, honest.  John has been trying to get me to believe this since the day we married.  I'm almost convinced... some of the time... I guess.  =)
  • You can take the girl out of Utah but the boy isn't budging from Delaware County.    It is a good thing I love the area!
  • Having siblings live with you can be fun- for a short period of time - like a day.  (Just kidding Ty and Becca and Jared and Steph- come back soon, we miss you!)
  • Kids are amazing and fun and sweet and wonderful and exhausting and crazy and all sorts of things we never imagined.
  • Take the number of kids you would like to have and subtract one.  Daddy is the biggest kid of all!
I tried sappy:

I can't believe how quickly the last 10 years have flown by!  At moments I am surprised we haven't killed each other.  But mostly, just like the song I sang to John at our reception, "I wouldn't change a thing that happened on my way to you," I wouldn't change a thing about the last 10 years because I love where we are right now and wouldn't risk losing that for anything.

But really, the best thing to say is:

Wow!  Ten years down, an eternity to go.  I can't wait!!

Happy 10 years! :)

Wow! 10 years - that's so awesome! Chuck and I just celebrated our 10th anniversary in December. My comment might go something like, "One eternity down, one to go."
