i love to see the temple...

one of my dearest friends got married on thursday and i had the privilege of going to the sealing in the salt lake temple. the ceremony was absolutely amazing, and it put everything into perspective for me, yet again... yes that is what usually happens when i go to the temple, but some of the things the sealer said were just incredible and exactly what i needed to hear! he really made me think about the potential that all of us have and all of the incredible blessings that Heavenly Father has in store for each of us in this life and in the eternities to come, according to our faithfulness. there is definitely a different spirit and power in a temple sealing that is just out of this world, literally! and ya know, that's what this life is all about! i'm grateful for temples and the blessings and light that they bring into my life! and yes, i can't wait til i get to be sealed to that special someone (whoever it is??) for time and all eternity! ha, but as for now, i'm lovin me some singleness and i'm learning a ton!

anyways, allyce and ryan looked absolutely stunning and were just perfect on their wedding day! it was so awesome to share that special day with them and i wish them the best in their new life together!

the "Y"

Jess, Kay, and I decided to take a little hike up the beloved Y mountain one night. I've lived in Utah for 6 years now, and this was only my second time up the mountain. It was definitely a fun adventure on a gorgeous summer night...

we made it up that blasted mountain!

yeah, we think we're cool!

this is a precious little boy we found on our hike... he's a heart breaker in the making... and maybe too girl crazy

the view is quite AMAZING! i definitely take the beauty of utah for granted...
it's starting to grow on me :)

ha... and this is the view on the otherside of the camera!
