Crawford and I just received the most amazing gift on Sunday....we received our temple recommends that we have been waiting and striving towards for about a year now! One talk that has sat with me for awhile now is the talk from Elder Clayton titled "Marriage: Watch & Learn." He talked about five principals that will strengthen any marriage....
1- Prosper: Make your marriage will prosper for eternity.
2- Faith: build your marriage on Jesus Christ & his teachings.
3- Repentance: helps maintain peace & harmony.
4-Respect: husband & wife treat each other as EQUAL partners.
5-Love: "Thou shalt love thy wife with all thy heart, & shall cleave to her & no one else."
I have a quote as my screensaver so I will remember it all the time....it is "Marriage is a gift from God, the quality of our marriage is our gift to him." That has really stuck with me since because its true!!! He gave us this Great gift and I feel Like it would be a disservice to him not to make sure out marriage is always of the best quality.
One more thought on his talk that I loved is when he talked about being humble.
Humility is selfless.
Humility is not selfish.
Humility listens for understanding.
Humility does not demand.
Humility does not speak with superiority.
Humility recognizes that NO ONE can change someone else.
Humility means that BOTH husband & wife seek to bless, help, & uplift each other.

This photo says it all!!! I am so in LOVE With my best friend :) We were in NYC for thanksgiving and Black Friday....after thanksgiving dinner we walked up and down time square, it is amazing!!! So many lights and people! After we did that we went to the famous LOVE statue and we stood there for like 20 minutes! Just watching people take pictures....then Crawford went to this Russian girl and asked her to take one last picture, he got down on one knee and told me how much he loved me and wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. By this time I just kept saying oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! And the Russian girl was yelling everyone around us clapped and cheered. Then I said yes and grabbed him and hugged and kissed him :) I cannot wait to start our lives together and grow stronger and stronger each day!!!
