Life as Mr & Mrs Rasmussen

WARNING: This post is very long winded. Anyone actually sane enough to read it all..bless you!

So wow.. it's been a while since I've written. I'm not exactly sure how I'm supposed to cram this all into one post, But believe you me,I will! When last I wrote, Trent and I were still engaged and in the thick of the wedding plans. 

   Well folks.. that wedding HAPPENED! And not in any way shape or form that I imagined it, might I add! This tale was an adventure all it's own! About a week before the big day, the weather forecast predicted rain. I had a hard time believing it, since the weather every day previous was in the 90's. "I call you a bluff, weather man!" Is what I kept thinking to myself. But as well all know... when it rains.. it POURS! 

 The wedding day was filled with rain and hail, but the elements couldn't compete with the laughs, the smiles, the tears of joy, and the memories that were made. Not many brides can say that she got to rock rain boots and umbrellas with her wedding gown. Not many brides get to say that they whizzed through the Pete's Fish and Chips drive through for lunch only to be greeted by hail and endless laughter with her photo entourage and new groom! The big day, came in a way that was a complete surprise. 

  I had no way of telling that it would turn out the way it did, but I wouldn't change that day for ANYTHING. That day, I married my best friend. And every day with him has been a gift, just leading us down the path of Eternity.

Following the wedding, Trent and I got to go to California for our Honeymoon!!

We got to go to Disneyland, and also spend some time down at our favorite California spot, Balboa Island. We were very blessed to have such a great time, and enjoy spending time with each other at long last, as

A lot of people will tell you that once you leave your "Honeymoon phase" that life starts to get really interesting. Now I know that Trent and I have only been married for 5 months now, and that we're not exactly "seasoned veterans" but I do know 
that no matter what life throws your way,
with your eternal companion and the Lord on your side.

In marriage there are many days and nights where all you have is the chance to drop to your knees in supplication to a loving Father in Heaven, and to hold on to your sweetheart with everything that you have.

These are the moments that mold you, and bring you closer to who we strive to become. 

Cleaning, cooking, laughing, hugging, smiling, kissing, snuggling, movies, talking, growing, loving.. catching a glimpse of Heaven in someone else's eyes. 
These are the moments that take your breath away, and remind you why we are here. To live to the fullest potential and measure of 
our creation. 

In more recent news, Trent is just a week out from debuting at the Hale Theater, in Little Women, the Musical. He will be playing the role of John Brooke, and we couldn't be more excited for this opportunity!He a also just recently found out that he will begin training as a full time service adviser at the Henry Brown GMC dealership in Gilbert. He is so excited for this opportunity and we couldn't be more thankful!

As for me, I am thrilled to start working towards entrance into the Bachelor of Arts program at ASU with my emphasis in Voice. Starting up lessons again with the incredible Mr Marc Denton!

Trent and I are so grateful for the life that we are building together, and for this beautiful world that we live in. And now..full speed ahead!
