One Year!!

Yesterday, Matt and I celebrated our one year anniversary. I seriously can't believe it has already been a year! Time really flies. To start off the day, we went to our favorite sandwhich shop in Rigby. We seriously go there once a week. Their chicken salad sandwhiches are the bomb. Then we went to see the movie, "2012." We were both kind of disapointed. The graphics and action scenes were pretty cool. But the overall acting was not so good. If you plan on seeing this movie, just wait til it's out at RedBox =) Anyways, after the movie, we went over to Grandpa Brigg's house. Grandma just recently passed away from Alzheimers on Friday, so the whole family was over there hanging out and trying to keep Grandpa smiling. They were married for over 60 years. It was a different kind of feeling. There was Matt and me celebrating one year of marriage, and then we would look at Grandpa who just lost his soul mate. I pray that we can live such a happy and long life/marriage that Grandma and Grandpa Briggs had. Their story is so sweet. They met when Marva was 16 and Arnold was 18. Grandpa asked Marva to marry her when she was only 16. She said no, but they continued dating. World War II was on and she found out that Arnold was shot 3 times in France. He was given the Purple Heart Award and flown back to the states. They were married that year =) You can read her obituary here-
