Lost Post: Our Sealing for Our Anniversary

So in the breath tonight between 11:59:59 February 28th and 12:00:00 March 1st is Evan and my 3rd-ish anniversary. See we were married on Leap day 2008, so technically we have not had our first year anniversary.

Since it is our anniversary, I decided to post about our sealing. I never posted the pictures from that event. Our dear friend Teresa took these pictures. However, when I first saw them I was really upset---let it be very clear that it is not the quality---I thought that I looked terrible. I was upset that no one told me that I looked that fat and all those things that us girls feel. Teresa gave me the disc with the pictures and for the next year or so I promptly lost, found, lost, found them in my desk and never loaded them on my computer. I finally found them about September and re-looked at them. I fell in love. I printed some and hung them in our hallway and I thought this would be a perfect time to post them.

I still think that I don't look my best, but I was happy that day. We all were. It was such a nice special day.

I'm one of Evan's old friends from college. I found your blog through facebook. I felt so happy reading this post and seeing these beautiful pictures that I had to write and tell you so. I think your family is absolutely beautiful. I'm glad you fell back in love with these pictures. They are simply wonderful. I'm really thrilled that you married Evan. I can tell by reading your blog that your life together is just as it should be.

Lovely Holly. There is nothIng as good looking as happy people, except for a happy family. That being said, I think you look cute even apart from all that. And I really hope that the picture of Kyle flying through the air is on display. Its great. I'm happy that you have each other. Happy day!

That picture of the three of you, where you are leaning down kissing Kyle, is such a gorgeous shot. These pictures look great. I totally understand that issue of being hypercritical of yourself in pictures (for me, it's my face. stupid acne), but then I get all sad when I don't have pictures with me in them of important and meaningful events (cuz I was hiding from the camera. Anyway, I think you look beautiful.

Super cute. I love the one that Evan is throwing Kyle up in the air and you are standing next to him with the temple in the background. They turned out so great.

I mean that.

Congrats on the anniversary!
