entering year 7!

Jason and i celebrated our 6th anniversary this weekend! it was wonderful. we have a routine for anniversaries that i particularly like, including sticking to the traditional gifts and being creative, but Jason broke with tradition and topped the cake with delicious icing by sending me to the spa for a maternity massage!!!!!!!!!!! i cannot put into words how wonderful this particular present was to me on this particular day. first, i've been far and away more uncomfortable in the past few days and weeks than with any other pregnancy. my legs are always cramping up on me, and my back has given me issues all along. to be honest, i really didn't think a massage was going to do it, a full time masseuse maybe, but a massage? let me tell you, 2 days later, i am still the most blissful person ever to walk the earth. and it turns out Jason was giving himself a little gift as well, the whole time i was getting the massage i felt an almost uncontrollable urge to thank my husband. i could not get him out of my mind, i was composing love letters in my head, thinking he was the best husband in the world, trying to come up with something wonderful enough to repay him. in short, i thought i could never love anyone as much as i loved him before the massage, and now unbelievably, i love him more! the masseuse gave me a new pair of legs. i feel like dancing. i meekly presented Jason with his gift, his favorite treats and a new golf club (year 6 is candy and iron), and we finished up the night with a trip to the temple to do sealings and a romantic dinner out. such a perfect day! not to be repetitive, but i love Jason Earl. happy anniversary honey, you are the best thing that's ever happened in my life. when i think of all we have (and are expecting!) i am overcome with an enormous sense of peace and happiness. thank you for making my life so wonderful, even without the world's greatest massage, i am the happiest woman alive!!!! i love you!

I really cant believe you will have three so close together. Aside from an aching back I am glad you are well.
