Yesterday Devan and I got to go to the wedding of one of my best friends since childhood. It was so beautiful and sweet and Katie looked GORGEOUS! It was the first wedding I have attended since getting married about three and a half months ago. And let me tell you it brought back memories and such great feelings!

Devan and I have such busy schedules lately that about half of our days are seeing each other for less than 1 hour when we are awake. It is great knowing that we have been so blessed to have these good things in our lives keeping us busy- like school and jobs- but it stinks not seeing him more sometimes. When we do have a night off together there is usually so much to get done that quality time together hasn't happened in a bit. But yesterday we got to spend the day together and it was great.

As I was sitting in Katie and Danny's sealing ceremony at the Salt Lake Temple it was so great to look back. On my wedding day I was so caught up and it was so new that I don't think I remember anything that was said that day in the temple. This time I just sat there listening and feeling the spirit and I felt so calm and happy for the gift of eternal marriage and families that the temple gives us. As the sealer was doing the ceremony he said a couple of things that really hit me that I am sure was said in some way on my wedding day, but i don't remember! Things I am resolved to do even better in:

1. Pray morning AND night with Devan. It is so important to have God in the center of our marriage.
2. Build Devan up and be his support.
3. Attend the temple and take advantage of ALL of the ways I can learn there.

After the temple Devan and I got to go to lunch together. We went to Red Robin and he was so excited about his food he wanted a picture. Its a little blurry as he kept moving and his eyes are shut, but I LOVE this picture. It is Devan to a T. He is such a goofball- a smart goofball- and I call him my nerd all of the time.

After Red Robin we visited my sister Taylor to give her some stuff and we got to stay and talk. It was so much fun and I really love my sisters. We miss Mckay so much and many times in the conversation we said "I wish I could tell Mckay...". Sisters are so great and I am so glad that I have them. Devan got a little bored with the conversation and fell asleep.. oops! haha

That evening topped it all off with a dinner at a beautiful greenhouse in Draper. Katie looked so happy as they were leaving and I just know they are so great together. All in all it was a fabulous day spent with my love celebrating Love.

It has only been three months married to my best friend, but let me tell you how great that three months has been! I can honestly say that I am happier than I have been in my entire life. Every morning I get to wake up to see my best friend by my side.  Every night I get to fall asleep next to him instead of having to say goodbye every day. And let me tell you- that is a great feeling.

Congrats Katie and Danny! We are so happy for you and know you will love this journey together!
