Smile

7 years ago CJ and I were married. Whoa...
Yep, it's been seven crazy, beautiful, stressful, wonderful, lovely, interesting, travelling, moving, laughter-filled years.
We were sealed in the Mount Timpanogos Temple at 6pm, a
nd I remember how packed CJ's "side" of the room was, and how there were like 3 people on my side. That's what happens when you're a convert from a teeny tiny family I guess. Don't ask me what the sealer said, or who cried, all I remember is kneeling across from CJ and just smiling the whole time, and trying not to laugh, because both of us were this.close to laughing. Sheer joy or hysteria, you choose.
We've never really had a song that was "us", but driving home from the gym this morning Uncle Kracker's new song "Smile" was playing. It was like the lyrics were written for us! So I played it for CJ and he actually agreed (he doesn't like to do that much on the first try, something about not wanting my ego to get too big?), and so, 7 years in, we finally have a song.

The lyrics:

You´re better than the best
I´m lucky just to linger in your light
Cooler then the flip side of my pillow that´s right
Completely unaware
Nothing can compare to where you send me
Lets me know that it´s ok yeah it´s ok
And the moments where my good times start to fade

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed sing like bird
Dizzy in my head spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday nightYou make me dance like a foolForget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh you make me smile

Even when you´re gone
Somehow you come along
Just like a flower poking through the sidewalk crack and just like that
You steal away the rain and just like that

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed sing like birdDizzy in my head spin like a recordCrazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh you make me smile

Don´t know how I lived without you
Cuz everytime that I get around you
I see the best of me inside your eyes
You make me smile
You make me dance like a foolForget how to breatheShine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed sing like bird
Dizzy in my head spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a beeJust the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh you make me smile

My favorite part is "Cooler then the flip side of my pillow", because CJ is constantly trying to
snag my (much better and more squishy comfy) pillow, and I love to sneak into bed before him and read a book/play on the iPod/watch TV before I go to sleep, and then switch to my side of the bed to fall asleep. Why? Because that way my side of the bed is still nice and cold for me when I'm ready to sleep. Mwahahah!
ANYWAYS, of course I had to do a scrap page for this momentous occasion: hitting our 7th anniversary and finally getting a song. Tah dah!


Happy 7 years, CJ. Here's to many, many more.
