5 years ago at a smoothie shop...

"Life's all about moments of impact and how they change our lives forever. ... The moment of impact proves potential for change and has ripple effects far beyond what we can predict."
-- via


One of the greatest moments of impact in my life was while I was blending smoothies at work my sophomore year of college.

It was five years ago today, while working at the pastry/smoothie shop on-campus at BYU-Idaho, that a friend stopped by to say hi. Sharla is one of the sweetest, most outgoing people I know, and I'll be forever grateful that she took the time to stop by after purchasing her books for the semester, and introduce her mom and brother to me. I honestly don't remember much, I was doing my best to blend those smoothies like a pro, ya know? ;)  But I do remember her mom being so genuinely happy to meet me (she is an angel woman and is like that with everyone she meets) and that her brother was pretty easy on the eyes. ;) Moment. Of. Impact.

Little did I know that day at the smoothie shop Adam would become my best friend, my caring husband, my protector, and the sweetest father to our children. So today we celebrated this special anniversary with lunch and, of course, smoothies.

I love you Adam. *Cheers* to our forever together with more awesome moments of impact. And if some happen to include smoothies, right on.
