March has been a great month. Learned so much. I love making progress in my life.
We kicked of the month with the Les Femmes concert at the Velour. Luna Lune killed it as usual. Chris is now obsessed with the Blue Aces.
One of my favorite things that has happened this month is Chris’ flag football team. My brothers, Adam and Zeke, and my Cousins, Devan and Mckay, and family friend, Casey Taylor, all played on a intramural flag football team at the U. It was so fun for me to go watch them play every Thursday night. Not to mention they won the championship game. Chris pulled his hamstring that game and has a ginormous bruise to prove it. Such a fun thing to do with family and friends!
Chris’ company, Struck, does advertisements for Ski Utah, so this year we didn’t even need to buy a pass but got free passes to several ski resorts. It was so fun to take our sister-in-law, Asia, skiing for her FIRST time! She was awesome! Gotta love spring skiing.
March is also the best time of year for us because it’s when we met!!! Our first date was March 21, 2013. Man time flies.
My mom’s side of the family always has a family reunion in March. The Cook family reunion this year was probably one of my favorites ever. Each of us found a story about our Grandma and Grandpa Cook to share form someone who knew them. We also got to listen to darling Aunt Miriam tell stories and it was amazing to hear about how beloved my grandparents were.
At the beginning of March I had the best idea for Chris’ 28th birthday. Chris’ fave thing in the world to do is laser tag. Soooo… I planned a surprise partay at laser quest. He had no idea! So fun. Love my twelve year old hearted boy.
The most important thing I learned this month, is that God has a plan. My older brother, who we call Baby Egan, was a stillborn. My mom was only about 24 weeks pregnant when she went into labor on March 29, 1993. Chris was born March 29, 1987. This gives me some sort of comforting feeling that I can’t quite describe that they have the same birthdays. It is so precious that we get to celebrate both Chris and Baby Egan on the same day. Pretty crazy the plans Heavenly Father has. If Baby Egan would have lived I wouldn’t be here. So grateful that I do get to be here, with the man I love, and that I can be with my brother and whole family again. I love eternal families!!!
The other fun thing I did this month… I helped my cousin make her family theme for 2015. Every year she has a different theme and frames them. I loved the idea so Chris and I talked about what we wanted to focus on this year. We decided that we needed to be more supportive, more kind, and more loving to each other and everyone else. Loved how both turned out.
