Ib Hnub Tshwj Xeeb (A Special Day)

Today I watched my best friend sealed for time and all eternity (yes, that's right, ALL eternity, not part of eternity, or half of eternity) to the love of his life, 45 days after she returned from serving a mission, and 138 days (give or take) after he did. It was so lovely, and a really nice ceremony and luncheon. That's about it for tonight, all I really wanted to do was document this day and say that I'm really excited to have a brand new nyab. Jessica is an awesome, beautiful girl and I've never seen Chiv Keeb so happy!

I call this my "Sirius at the Wedding of Lily and James Potter" picture
(see this drawing for reference).

Jared and Jessica Johns

P.S. "Nyab" is a general term for "[female]-in-law".


  1. Good luck and blessings to them. Glad you could go to the sealing.

  2. YAY! I have an idea who that is, but I'm not sure since I don't speak Hmong. Either way, congrats!

  3. Please tell me you orchestrated that photo just so you could call it that.

  4. Oh, you so know I did... After it was taken, I even pointed it out to them. The groom knows me well enough, he just laughed.

    Oh, and stupid me, I didn't even put their names! It's Jared Johns (three times companions, including MTC) and Jessica Lewis Johns.

  5. It looks lovely indeed. I also approve of the union, though, you do have more of a right to do so.

  6. yes, they look like a very happy couple. Congrats to the newlyweds!
