8th Anniversary

8th Anniversary!

Who knew that our first likings of one another would lead us to where we are today. Who knew it would lead us into hardships we'd feel like we could endure no longer. To trials that would push on us until we'd rather be crushed. To personal decisions we'd make from minute to minute that would determine the future.

Yet, here we are now, through the roughest era, into one of love, acceptance, respect, appreciation, happiness and most of all, love.

Love you John!

Recipe & Quotes

Yup, we're still drinking our green smoothies. Here's our favorite recipe:

1 1/2 cups organic apple juice
large handful of spinach
2-3 leaves of collard
2-3 leaves of kale
1 banana
1/2 avocado

That's it! It's our secret recipe so don't share! ;) We don't mind the green color. Green is good!!! Society has simply tainted our way of thinking - it's the best color we can take into our body.

I almost want to take on Elder Grobergs diet as he served his mission on the Tongan islands. It consisted of roots, potatoes, leafy greens such as seaweed, seafood (fish, crabs, lobsters), and fruits and vegetables. Once or twice a month they'd have chicken or pork.

Doesn't that sound wonderfully healthy?

"Wherever you go or whatever you do, under proper assignment, put your whole heart and soul into it and you will be happy and have joy therein. It doesn't matter whether it be family, work, missions, or other callings, joy comes from hard work and proper attitude, not location or type of work or calling."
- John H. Groberg

"It is not how much we do but the love we give that really matters."
- Mother Theresa
