I loved the peace that this weekend contained. It was full of family, friends, and visiting the lights at the Temple. There is nothing like it! It seemed that no matter the night nor how busy and crowded the grounds were, the Spirit was peaceful, happy, and reverent. We heard a great choir from a local school one night and a flute quartet the next time we visited. What a great place to walk, hold the hand of one you love, and remember the real reason for the season!! I wish all of my family could/would take the time to stroll the grounds.
Jennie and I began our wedding cake tasting expedition this week. What a hard job!! We laughed as we ate our way through two slices of cake while sitting in our car and licking off our fingers. Not quite the professional way but fun nonetheless! Jennie's still very open minded about styles, shapes and colors. We have even thought of cupcakes! Now to find the right taste and price!! More tasting ahead this week. I guess that means we will diet Monday through Friday!!
Aisling of Eire by Dorothy Keddington arrived via Inter-Library Loan this week! Ya gotta love this great service. This copy comes from the Sandy, Utah library!! Wahoo! I can't wait to jump in and enjoy. I have been waiting a very long time for it! I am currently reading Gravity by Tess Gerritson but I may have to put it aside -- I am awful at waiting! I love book choices!! Christmas break means some more time for reading. Yippee!
Rich and I have decided how we are going to spend our anniversary this year. We are going to take the light rail downtown and enjoy the shops, art galleries and a nice lunch at Durrants. Yum! We are going to go over Christmas vacation when the light rail is free for everyone! Sort of a field trip! Pretty low key but just a fun adventure together! Wanna join us?!?!
Wedding announcement ordering was fun! Jennie was very creative and she and Kyle chose a variety of shots for the announcement. It will be fun to see it all put together! She also WON a free wedding shoot from a very talented wedding photographer, Nikaela Curtis (www.nikaelacurtisphotography.com). WoW!! We are so excited. Even better, the friend who took her terrific engagement shots will be an assistant for the shoot! All of this was a result of blogging too! Isn't that amazing?!?!? A pretty great week!
Tomorrow we meet the future in-laws. I'm a little apprehensive .... you'd think I was the bride! I wish I was a cooler person! Guess I'll just have to go as me!! Yikes!
