Season’s Greetings family and friends,
Jamie and I are so excited to share our new lives with all of you. Our Father in Heaven has granted us so many blessings in 2008.
In March we were married in Richfield in a beautiful little ceremony. Afterwards we spent a week in San Diego for our honeymoon. We had a fantastic time and made it home just in time for me to pass a kidney stone. Not fun… if you get the chance to pass one, don’t do it! Jamie claims that I was quite brave, “but I think she was just being nice. New brides have to do that kind of thing. I cried like a little baby.” In January Jamie had a much more serious bout with her health. Her thyroid was removed due to cancer. However, we are happy to report Heavenly Father has blessed her with a full recovery.
If this is the first time you have heard from us in a while we apologize, we have been so busy. Jamie is still working as an RN with IHC, and I am still with SWRI. Even though work seems to take most of our time our employers are not the only one’s keeping us busy. In fact, between the two of us we currently have six callings in our little ward.
Since we are newlyweds we have been trying to travel as much as possible before any kids show up. That is not an announcement! In April we went to Chicago to visit my sister Amy and her family. We had a wonderful time visiting museums, eating pizza, and going to our favorite musical Wicked. In November, we went to Hawaii for a week with our good friends Tim and Danice. It was absolutely fantastic. We surfed, visited the temple, and even swam with a dolphin.
This Christmas season we have been truly blessed to feel our Savior’s influence in our lives. We hope and pray that you and your families find joy and peace during the holidays and throughout the New Year. We love you all and appreciate your love and prayers on our behalf.
Justin & Jamie Jepson
