Ko E Ta'u 'Uluaki

Today was our one year anniversary! :) It has gone by so fast!

Since it's Sunday Taiyo and I went out to see a movie together yesterday, after a Texas Roadhouse dinner with my family. We saw the Time Traveler's Wife, and of course it made me cry because I cry sooo easily (I have even choked back tears several times watching things like 'America's Got Talent' and 'I Survived a Japanese Gameshow'. I'm not kidding.) But we enjoyed it and it was nice to have a night out with just the two of us. Thanks Mom and Dad and Erin for watching Soni for us! While we were on our way home I was so anxious to get there and scoop up my little baby in my arms and kiss him all over because we're not used to being away from him for so long!

We decided to start a little tradition for our anniversaries. Each year we'll each write a letter to each other about our favorite happenings of the year and our love for each other. Then in years to come we can look back and remember how our marriage has progressed and some of the things we've gone through together. We wrote the first ones today. Maybe if I get crafty someday I'll find a clever way to scrapbook them or store them somehow.

I'm so grateful to my Heavenly Father for my wonderful husband. I love him so much and am grateful for the sacrifices he has made for us. I know I am far from the perfect wife and I still have a lot of growing room, but our life together has been great so far and I am looking forward to the rest of it. I love you Taiyo!
