Of all the temples we have visited so far, this was my favorite visit. Why?
Because my baby brother got hitched!
We drove out to Utah for his wedding. It was a super quick trip. We left in the early evening on Wednesday and got home on Sunday. So we really only had two full days in Utah- one of which was filled with wedding festivities, and the other a few temple visits, a baby blessing, and lots of family time. We packed a lot into those two days, and it was such a fulfilling little trip.
So my brother Matt is 15 years younger than me. He is a genius with music (have you heard of RKDN? If not, you will.), and also apparently with picking an eternal partner. I absolutely adore his new bride!
On the day of his wedding, in late April, it started snowing! It was a cold, windy, snowy day. But oh, so beautiful.
With the exception of myself, all of my parents’ children have been sealed in the Mount Timpanogos Temple (Carey and I were sealed in Orlando). It is a special place for my family. We have done lots of work there through the years, and I’m sure I will return there many more times.
