A couple weeks ago I was married to my sweetheart. It was the best day of my whole life. Although it was a long and crazy day, it was wonderful. My whole family drove up to California. I spent the evening in a hotel with my family. I hardly slept at all. I went over to Stacey's house around 9 am. We drove to LA and got to the temple on time. Stacey and I got to wait together while everyone headed to the sealing room. It was a wonderful time. The spirit was so strong. All of our family was there. Stacey and I stood and saw ourselves in reflecting mirrors. We seemed to go on forever together. It was really special.
We changed and headed outside to our welcoming party. Everyone we knew was there to greet us. We took pictures, exchanged hugs and enjoyed our time together.
That afternoon we headed back to Moorpark for our luncheon at Mimi's cafe. The food was great. We got to visit with our families and continue enjoying the perfect day. My two best friends Kevin and Etai came as well.
In the evening we had our reception at Stacey parents house. Everything was great. We got to walk around and greet people. We danced, cut the cake and even got to enjoy a little bit of the food there. Everyone seemed to have a great time.
At 9 oclock Stacey and I finally got to escape and head to Ventura to spend our honeymoon on the beach. It was alot of fun and we both enjoyed the restful vacation after such a busy week. Four days later we returned home to Provo where we moved into our new house.
2 weeks later we headed down to Arizona for our Open house. My mom did a really good job will all of the preparations. The church looked wonderful. It was great to see all of my old friends and leaders from my youth. We returned home on Mothers Day. While Stacey and I spend most our time at work and school, we have spent every evening unpacking and creating a home to live in together.
I have never been happier in my life. I have such a wonderful family. My new family with Stacey, my in-laws family, and my parents family have made this the best time in my life. I love my wife and look forward to our wonderful life together.
