Day 6: A Moment You Wish You Could Relive

So much for posting every day, or close to, huh?

I have an excuse [sort of] for putting this off.  I could not for the life of me think of THE moment that I wish I could relive.  My first thought, of course, went to mine and Darren's wedding day, but that's a no brainer really.  The day went by fast...I remember bits and pieces, a little bit of who helped and who attented, but it's mostly a blur.  As as much as I would love to relive that day, take it in a little more, I didn't want to choose that for this.  Don't ask me why...I just wanted to do something different.  Something unexpected, becaues lets be real, you all probably thought I'd talk about wanting to relive my wedding, right?

The day I want to relive...is more like a trip.  Darren and I got engaged on Sept. 4th, 2009.  A week after that, Darren and I took a trip.  I'm not sure exactly...but I think we started this trip on the 9th or 10th, and got back the 12th?  Maybe 13th...that's besides the point.

This trip was a little get away to Utah.  We stopped in Vegas and I met the Vegas Hunsaker crew at lunch.  If I remember correctly...it was Sheldon, Chris, Shawn, June, Audrey, Jen, and Kenyon.  The other kids were in school that day.  I think we ate at Red Robin or something like that.  It was fun getting to meet my future family, they're wonderful.  After lunch, we picked up Darren's cousin Jason.  He was coming to Utah with us.  In Utah, we just had fun.  Went to an Allred concert, had lunch with Marcee and Aaron, spent time with Ford, and had a blast.  While browsing at the BYU Bookstore, I came across a book titled "300 Questions LDS Couples Should Ask Before Marriage".  The entire drive down from Utah was spent reading that book.  It was fun!

It was a very memorable weekend.  But why would I choose this over my wedding day?  This weekend was perfect.  Darren and I were already engaged, we were in love, I knew we'd be together forever, but this weekend was when our love really grew.  We got to know each other so much that weekend and we fell in love even more.  That's why I'd relive it if I could.  It was when I really really fell in love with my husband.  It was a wonderful weekend.  It was what made our wedding day possible.  And for that, I would love to go back and do it all over again.  I love my life =)
