Geoffrey Alan Hadley



I cannot express in words how much I adore my husband. Geoffrey is the most loving person I have ever known. I am in awe with his humble nature, and it is overwhelmingly sincere. I married this man because of how profoundly deep his goodness runs. He is an example to me of how we should treat others. I am so impressed with how kind he is to his siblings and how much respect he shows his parents. He is everyone’s favorite. There is no question as to why. Geoff is the most considerate person I have ever met. I appreciate his subtle ways, and how he is so aware of others and their needs. He puts others first. His unconditional love and understanding has brightened my soul. I have never felt so loved, and I know that I am cherished. This is an assurance that not everyone gets to enjoy. I feel so blessed to have such a loving relationship. I am so attracted to my Geoff and want to be a better person if only to be worthy to be with him through the eternities. I look forward to bringing children into this world with him at my side. I know that he will make an outstanding father. I believe that Geoff was put into my life to help guide me back to my Heavenly Father. I pray that I can always make him aware of how much I love him. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GEOFF!!!

WAKE SURFIN' USA





For those of you out there who long for the surf, but live in Utah... there is a remedy. It is called wakesurfing. As you can see it is really fun and our new thing.

Colorado


We visited Annie and Jeff and our Bags in Colorado. We had a great time as long as Joey was under control. We hiked to "Hanging Lake" one of my favorite places in all of the Rockies. Please allow your eyes to enjoy!

Lovin' Life


Geoff and I have too much fun! Sometimes I feel like I am always at a party, maybe that is why I can never sleep. We are just busy working (for me at a non-profit organization called YouthLINC) and Geoff (as a stock broker but his time is spent remodeling our house). I am growing a baby, and today we got to see our first ultra sound. I adored the experience. I started to laugh when the Dr. pointed out that my baby looks like a thumb sucker and then I teared up. It is such an amazing feeling to know that there is a new person on its way. Yeah! For Father's day I got Geoff a T-shirt that says, "My Boys Can Swim." He is more excited than I ever thought a man could be. He treats me like I am 9 months pregnant, not allowing me to carry things and being so tender/attentive. The Dr. kept saying during our appointment today, "Oh you should keep him!" Referring to Geoff's kind actions and words to me. I am the luckiest gal ever! My hot little Aussie and I are very much in love with each other and with life.

"I like"



We just went to Kazakhstan for a business trip with my parents. It was a really wonderful experience. I finally learned exactly what my dad does... and he is not a double agent after all. It was a great thing for Geoff to put faces with the names of his clients. We really had some adventurous moments. Everything reminded me of my time spent living in Russia.

Lake Powell: Our second home

Linds as a brunette



I was surprised at my bravery when I went brown last summer. It was fun and I am glad I tried it, but I kept feeling like I was wearing a wig. In my mind’s eye I am blonde and I just had to go back to being me.

Utah, the promised land




Geoff and are really happy in Utah. We have a blast in the summer boating and enjoying the mountains and even more fun snowboarding in the winter. Utah seems to have the best of both worlds. True- Geoff has no ocean to surf in but with our new beloved wakesurfing he can get his fix.
