And if you end up watching related videos for hours and laughing yourself off your chair, I take full credit.
If you don't like it, well, there's no accounting for taste.

This is us with our sealer, Robert P. Manookin
We walked out a few hours later, still hand in hand, still best friends, but now joined as husband and wife for all of eternity.
Chris remembers clearly a visit he had with his bishop while we were engaged.
His bishop, a really great guy named Phil Jensen told him, "If you think you love her now, just wait."
Chris thinks back to that conversation regularly. At the time he didn't think it was possible to love me more than he did. He was wrong.
12 Years seems like a pretty long marriage when you compare it to some marriages, but it seems like a baby step when you think that we have eternity still to go.
Is it possible that I could love him more next year than I do now?
Is it possible that in another 12 years I'll look back at today and think, "Wow, I hardly even understood love back then"?
One thing I do know is the day that we walked into that temple 12 years ago was one of the most critical days of my existence. My happiness for all of my life and after pivot on the decision, the commitment, and the covenant I made that day.
I looked in Chris' eyes and said "yes" that day without fear, without reserve. With my whole heart and understanding.
It was one of the best things I have ever done. I wouldn't go back and change it for anything.
I am so grateful I get to have this man beside me.
He is still my best friend.
And I thought I loved him then.....
