Eighteen years ago today, I married my soulmate. It is without a doubt the best decision I ever made.
Here's a picture of us on our wedding day.
We were pretty hot, dontcha think? Of course, most people are at the ripe old age of 21. Ahem.
And it's a very good thing we were so hot. Because we got married in the Idaho Falls Temple. The Idaho Falls Temple is in Idaho. Idaho in December is a very cold place. And on the day we got married, Idaho was the coldest place Idaho had been in 35 years. The high temperature that day was -12 degrees Farenheit. I know! I am shivering just remembering. I have never been so cold in my life as I was driving to Idaho Falls early that morning, wearing a knee length dress, nylons, and black pumps.
Here we are out in the minus 12 degree sunshine to take a picture to prove we got married in the I.F. Temple. We had to hold our breath so there wouldn't be white clouds of steam in front of our faces.
No one else in the wedding party would even come outside for the picture! So it was just the photographer (thanks dad!), my handsome groom, and me. Family loyalty runs shallow in Idaho in December.
But because we were hot, so we didn't mind. Funny what dizzying happiness does to a person's senses, isn't it?
