Together for Eleven

July 18th was our 11th wedding anniversary - can you believe it?!? I am simply filled with gratitude for this amazing, talented, grace-filled (and so good looking!) man and for the myriad ways God has grown, stretched, and transformed me through our marriage. I love The Message translation of Matthew 19:11-12
Marriage isn't for everyone... But if you're capable of growing into the largeness of marriage, do it.
I know that I still have a heck of a lot of growing to do, and I am keenly aware of the blessing of learning from and growing alongside such an amazing man.

We did the big party thing last year, so we kept this anniversary celebration low-key with a Wallflowers concert at Red Butte. We had a lovely night sharing champagne toasts while being serenaded (well us, plus a few thousand other folks) by Jakob Dylan.

Incidentally - Jakob totally looks and sounds like a young Bob. It's like Bob meets California Surfer Band or something... it's hard to describe the experience, but Steve and I had several moments during the concert where we just looked at each other and went, "woah."

Congrats! You guys are awesome and have an awesome family. You sure set a good example for all of us that have been married for a shorter time.

I remember wondering what you guys were getting yourselves into back at SMC! I'm so glad God doesn't require us to be in society's box, you exhibit to me what freedom in Christ represents! Thanks, the both of you!
