I will be 100% honest. It all started with my green snakeskin pants. Yes, people-my relationship with my husband all started with my awesome outfit choice on that day in March of 2003. Sam & I had been set up by my dad & his cousin who had been lifelong friends. He flew out to Reno to meet me & I figured that the best outfit to wear when we first met would be a pair of green snakeskin pants. My sisters begged me to not leave the house, “Can’t you just wear jeans like a NORMAL PERSON!?!?!?” The problem was that they were so sexy that I couldn’t NOT wear them! So off to the airport I went, proudly wearing my sexy pants-excited beyond belief to meet Sam for the first time.
We first met in the airport in Reno-I remember him turning the corner, seeing his beautiful smile & my knees turning to mush when I saw him. He liked my snakeskin pants & the rest is history! We hit it off right away & it didn’t take me long to realize that I was head over heels for Sam. We were married in 2003 at the beautiful Oakland Temple with all of our family & friends in attendance. It was the most perfectly wonderful day I’ve ever known. And incase you’re wondering, I still have my green snakeskin pants.
Today is our 7th Wedding Anniversary! I am so lucky to be married to such an incredible, wonderful & fabulous person. He supports me in my business, helps me with so much & I thank him for helping me become the person I am today. I thank God every single night that I found my best friend, my love, the best father for Hadley & my favorite person in the world all wrapped into one person. Sam & I have shared so many adventures together-biking through the streets of Florence on Easter Sunday, scuba diving in the Philippines, late night visits to Taco Bell (Baja Blast, baby!), and our biggest adventure to date-raising our little daughter Hadley. I’m so grateful that I’ve had Sam by my side for the past seven years & I can’t wait for all the years to come!! Happy Anniversary to us!
