Happy Anniversary to us!




10 years today, we were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. Beautiful memories from a beautiful day. We celebrated our anniversary big last year because we thought we would have a little one this year. Needless to say that is not the case and so we are having a quiet little night with dinner and a movie while our kiddos hang out with our wonderful friends *thanks Free fam*. We like to take a picture of our family on our anniversary so I will add that to the post after this evening.
Just for a bit of interesting info- the traditional gift for a 10 year anniversary is Tin or Aluminium. Sounds a little weird until you hear the symbolism. Tin and Aluminum are malleable metals, they serve to remind us that we should be flexible in our marriage and that even though somethings may get bent it doesn't mean they are broken or beyond repair. For this year we are going to get a little tin box and make a time capsule to be opened on our 50th anniversary. When it is put together I'll post how it turns out.
