We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Happy Yes Day

Happy yes day! Ten years ago today in Hamburg, Germany this awesome man asked me to marry him. And I stared at him for a second in surprise. Then I said yes. We celebrated as a family, heading to Sea World. Turns out, the day before, on Valentine's Day, Baby Shamu was born!!! and we got to see the baby swimming around with its mama in the big pool. All the whales were out of sorts, so they didn't do a show, but kept a round-the-clock-feeding-system going. Apparently baby whales can't stop swimming when they're born, so they stay on the side of the mama, and she has to swim around for a whole week. So the trainers have fish in buckets ready for the mom to get close enough to them to gape open her mouth and receive a whole bucket-load of fish, to-go-style.  Pretty amazing to have been there, seen the little whale, and see the story. Every time we go there, we see something new. The park is big, and has LOTS to discover. This time we also found a little-old-man fish in one of the aquariums, and enjoyed taking in the room-sized-walled-in-aquarium. It was a fun day to be together and reminisce. Jared's a wonderful husband and dream-of-a-father to Lukas. Counting my blessings.
