[Newport Beach, CA -- March 29, 2013]
I thought it would be appropriate to post the videos of our special day today. It has been exactly 7 months since I became Mrs. Jacobs & I cannot explain how grateful I am. These past months have been filled with change--from graduating, moving to DC, working full time, to learning how to live with a man! So much growth for such an important purpose. These months, days, hours, seconds are so significant in how we are shaping the foundation of our marriage. Every disagreement, every hurt feeling, every bad day builds experiences that will inevitably solidify the bonds you have made with one another. If you both have the commitment or end goal to be happily married & endure through the good, bad & the ugly, I know that you will be. It is just baby steps. Day by day interactions that will soon turn into even more love than you thought you could ever posses.
If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it & protect it. You never abuse it. You don't make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.
--Elder F. Burton Howard
