it's all about love.


then
ryan and i dated about five (and a half!) months before we got engaged. then we got married eleven weeks after that. when we're being generous, we say we dated for six months and were engaged for two. that's eight months total (fast!)

"dude," my friend susanna told me, "that's either so right it's good, or so bad it's stupid."

so far, it's not stupid.

happy five years, manly.

now

also how funny is it that I clicked on your friend's bog (kari and robert) to do a little blog stalking and realized that she is married to my cousin in law's brother -i grew up in the same stake as rob. funny small little mormon world.

Happy anniversary, my friend. December 29 is a lovely day to be married, as I know from 8-year-old experience. This is definitely in the "so very right" category!
