Temple & Unexpected Visit


This week i had the opportunity to attend the Draper Temple Open house. The walk through the Temple was pretty amazing. The last time i got to do that i was just a little girl. I was really excited because this time i was old enough to really take in and realize that i was walking in the lords house. What a beauty, it holds such a special spirit. I had some of the same feelings as i did back in the summer when i had the opportunity to walk through the sacred grove. I couldn't hold the tears back as i walked through the beautifully decorated rooms. It was so peaceful and Wow the chandeliers are gorgeous! I wanted to take home all of the beautiful paintings on the walls. If you haven't been able to go, I would encourage you to walk through the building as open houses don't last long and are not very often. (especially if you are not able to attend the temple on a regular basis). I can't wait to dress in my wedding gown and fix myself up in the Bride's Room. :) I couldn't help thinking about the day that i will be sealed to my sweetheart for time and all eternity in the house of the lord. I am so excited and look forward to that day so much.

I heard from Rebecca on Tuesday morning, she told me that they just flew in to Salt Lake. WhAt?!... I didn't know they were even coming! I was very excited and the next morning i took a trip down to salt lake for lunch with Rebecca and her sister Ruth. I was able to spend a few hours with little Libby. ( i don't know why i always call her Little Libby because she is not so little anymore!!) The boys were all gone skiing so i didn't get to see them but we still had a fun time. Libby will be 1 next month and i cannot believe it!! Time goes by so fast! She's not walking yet but any day now... :) Thanks Rebecca for the surprise...it is always so good seeing my second family!
