Hi all, this is Kyla's husband Steve. Today marks our 2 year Anniversary! I wanted to tell her how great she is and how much I love her.
I never imagined, that I would not only have a beautiful woman who shares my values on so many things and works hard to keep our family strong, but also supports my dreams.
I think many people might talk about supporting their spouses dreams especially before marriage but I am so lucky to have a woman who actually does it.
More and more I see that I made the best choice in asking you to marry me. It takes a special woman to be married to me.
As you may remember the most important thing to me in choosing a wife was finding a woman who I wouldn't just love for a few years, but one I could love forever. I knew life would throw us plenty of curve balls through time. It was a complete necessity that I find a woman who would grow in the same direction with me.
I believe much of divorce and unhappy marriages come from couples giving up and not walking on the same path in life. We have stayed constant in our path as we have changed for the better. I feel we are more alike and better to each other now than we were during the time of dating and beginnings of our marriage. We treat each other better and are more patient with one another than we were before.
That says something.
We have had to make hard decisions in our marriage, and endure many hardships new to our previous lives.
That one choice was so powerful. The choice to marry not someone I just had an infatuation with, but someone who would stay on the same track I would.
You are a remarkable woman, you do so much to keep our marriage alive and you always put me before anyone else. I struck gold!
I love you so much and truly look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries to come. This year was better than the last and may things always look up!

We started packing that very minute I got off the phone and want searching for boxes. My wonderful parents started look at apartments for us in Orem but none of them my parents liked and they where in sketchy neighborhoods. Then my mom came across a one bedroom basement apartment in Alpine 1.6 miles from my parents house. It would require us to help the man up-stair by taking him to church, doctor appointment, yard work, and any other errands he would need. I was ok with that even though we wanted a 2 bedroom apartment, the place was big and VERY nice for the price. We still couldn't decide but my mom scheduled us an interview with him anyways for Saturday at four. We scheduled a rental truck for Saturday before my mom set up the appointment and then realized we would need two days to load all our stuff in the truck. When I went to change the date they told me they had no trucks available. Then I started to panic because we need to be in Utah for the interview. We called many different places but they all where too expensive. We ended up calling the same company but the one in Idaho Fall's to see if they had one for us. They only had one left so we raced up there and got the rental truck. Thanks to four of our great friends we barely made it out in time to make our appointment. We met with Monroe for the apartment and we LOVED it. The next day he called us on Sunday to let us know we got the apartment and we moved in Monday. All we had left was to sell our contract and we only had till that same Monday to sell it or we would have to pay that months rent. Again by some miracle we sold it that very Monday.
Looking back that was one of the biggest blessing and a complete miracle that that all worked out so quickly. I know with out a doubt my husband and I where meant to be here in Utah. After finding out my aunt and then not to long later my grandpa have cancer I am so glad I can now be a support for my family. I am glad I get to be more involved in my sister's lives as they grow up. I can now help my family with anything they need. Now more then ever I need to be near my family so we can get through this together. I also have an amazing job now in American Fork, the perfect home, a cat, along with my amazing husband of course.
Life Is Good!! :D
