Wedding Pictures and Introduction- Best Post ever!

Michael and I met and dated our freshman year at Brigham Young University. We both served volunteer missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I served an 18 month mission in Toronto, Ontario. He served a two year mission in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands- Spanish speaking. We stayed in contact for two and a half years through snail mail. After my mission, I came back out to Utah to continue my education and Michael and I quickly began dating again, got engaged and were married on July 6, 2007 in Oakland, CA- the happiest day of my life! I graduated from Brigham Young University in the Social Sciences-Home and Family Life and completed an internship at House of Hope- a residential drug rehab center for mothers and their children. I was hired and was assigned to take care of the infants, teach preschool lessons, design a computer program for documenting and taught a weekly parenting class for the mothers on Child Milestones and Family Communication. Michael is currently working in the student employment office, studying history-emphasis is American History and taking a prep course- the LSAT- for Law School. I am making this blog as a surprise for him! Here are some of our favorite wedding pictures!!!
