The BIG .5

As Andrew called it today at church. We have been happily married for 6 months now! I know it's not a lot, but it's kind of a mile stone, right? Well, we'll pretend it is! A while back during the summer, I found a tiny piece of paper in Andrew's wallet. I started reading it, and I was so confused! I asked him what that was and he got so embarrassed and took it from me. He said it was what he'd written out in case he "had to" give a toast at our reception! He's too funny. I love him so much and am very grateful for his love. Enjoy the wonderful almost toast!

You know, it's kind of funny, when we were younger Afton was always my best friend's little sister. We never talked, we never hung out, so she was just Chuck's little sister. Well at the end of my sophmore year I moved to England and when I came back at the end of my senior year, Chuck's little sister had grown up..and she looked good!
So I finally learned her name, I finally had an opportunity to get to know her, and I fell in love. I discovered what an amazing person she is inside and out. That love for who she is has brought me to where I am today, a very blessed son of God because I get to be married and sealed to one of His choicest daughters. Its going to be a great eternity and I promise sweetheart to do everything I can to make you feel special...and try to get you to Disney as often as I can!
I love you Afton, and I always will!

and this is my favorite part:

(kiss her)
