5 months and 1 year.

Exactly today, Clark and I have been married for 5 months but something else that is cool is exactly one year from today Clark and I had been reunited from him being on his mission for 2 years.
 A TON has happened in the past year as well as in the past 5 months. 

5 things I have learned from being married for 5 months:
  • Time is not the most important factor to determine readiness/happiness of marriage. 
  • It is necessary to tell your hubby exactly what you want/feel/need because he can't read your mind.
  • Being married is a lot more fun and less scary than it seems when you're getting married.
  • Cereal really is one of the best, quickest foods to eat when you're hungry.
  • Being married to your best friend is the best thing in the world. 

31 pictures to recap the past year with Clarkie Bear:

Clark came home!

At the beginning we had many group dates - Sundance

Dancing it up at Kyle's - this was actually our first date in 2 years!

We road tripped to Six Flags and spent the day in the Pouring Rain

While we were in cali we hung out with J&C

We made it to a JAZZ game!

Had lots of fun times on Bonnie Brae Ave

We got to see my niece a lot in Park City

And went to our first official formal dance at BYU

We watched Conference at Temple Square

And Clark helped me run my first 5K race!

Got crazy at some sweet dance parties!

We got engaged on April 4, 2011

I took Clark on my family's traditional hike to the Beaver Ponds

We attended Clark's brother's Wedding

Spent a weekend trip with my family in Southern Utah

And had a crazy spontaneous day - at Parachute's concert!

We made it to the pre-party of HP7P2 but left before the movie started because I got sick

Went on a trip to Jackson Hole/the Tetons with the Brimhalls

 and went to the beautiful wedding of  one of my roommates 

Had a crazy time of getting lost on our way to our engagement Session

And got sealed on August 5, 2011 for time and eternity

Went cruisin' in Mexico for our honeymoon!

Kind of went camping on my 21st birthday

We spent our first Halloween together as a Lion and a Hillbilly 

And had fun in the fall

Went to Iowa for Thanksgiving to visit my momma

And had a fun party for Clark's 22nd birthday

Had our first Christmas together (sadly, this was the only pic we had)

And hit up the ski slopes at Brighton the day after Christmas!

This year also consisted of many intense games of Legretto! 

That was our fun crazy and eventful year in a nutshell.
I cannot wait for more and more to come!
