It took forever, but it was worth the wait.

On March 16, 2012 
Stephanie Elizabeth May
became our new daughter when she married Scott in the 
San Diego LDS Temple.
Lemme tell you about Stephanie -
Steph is a wash and wear beauty.  
She doesn't get caught up in fashion or wear designer clothes yet she 
could be a cover girl.  
Her wedding dress came from eBay but she looked as though she'd been
personally fitted by Vera Wang.  
She had me do her wedding makeup, but I suspect it was simply because
it's a given that women get fancied up for stuff like that 
and because she loves me.  
She doesn't wear chapstick because she believes it's addictive.
 Her biggest fashion statement is wearing one of her crocheted 
animal hats.  
Steph is brilliant.  She is one of those people who can still play while
acing all of her classes in college and pharmacy school.  
She is an amazing cook who googles Indian recipes and takes pictures of her 
favorites and posts them on facebook under 
titles like "Bread Porn."
She knows how to work hard and has spent summers sweating in the fields 
picking melons, and moving boxes in a warehouse 
with the big boys.
She is competitive and will take you apart as quickly and viciously in a 
game of Yatzee as if she was after a Super Bowl ring.  
She is funny and happy and quick and I miss her when she's gone.
But what I love most 
is that she loves my son with a fierce loyalty, and 
when I see the way she looks at him and the way he looks back
I'm grateful that she said
