Temple Tulips

After school today I went to the temple. I went to the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple in American Fork, Utah. I remember attending the groundbreaking ceremony of this temple. I remember translating for Japanese visitors at the temple openhouse. I sang in the Celestial Room in the final dedicatory session where President Gordon B. Hinckley spoke. And of course, this is where I married my Sweetheart. I LOVE this place and I LOVE the way I feel when I'm there. When I left the temple, I grabbed my camera and shot a few pics. K truly created a monster when he bought me that camera. I was so wishing he was with me this afternoon because (he's gonna kill me for writing this) today is the anniversary of our very first kiss! Alas, the boy is ninety miles away!!! So while I was sitting in the Celestial Room this afternoon, I sat on the same sofa and in the exact spot where a temple worker parked us right before our marriage ceremony. She took us to that room, sat us down, and told us to wait until she came back for us. We just quietly held hands and then we went to our sealing room and got married, for time and all eternity. I couldn't be happier about that decision. Love you, K!

Storm moving in on Timp (and just for the record, I have hiked to the summit of that mountain--11,750? feet).

Looks a little warmer than the day we got married, but I wouldn't trade our Wedding Day for anything!

The House of the Lord!

The temple grounds are always so beautiful, but tulips and pansies are especially lovely in Spring.

  1. Love your pics!!! In May when I leave after working, it's the sweetest smell! I've never heard of a temple worker "parking" anyone in the Celestial Room! Love it!
