This... IS A HUGE DEAL!! I just found out this past Sunday that I'll be able to go THROUGH the temple on the day after Thanksgiving while I'm in Washington with my family!!! This is seriously such an important thing, and I'm so excited to be able to receive all of the blessings that come with this experience! I was super lucky to be able to go through so far in advance of my wedding, but since my family won't be able to come out to Utah until 2 days before our wedding, and I'm only going to see them for a week during Thanksgiving, I really needed them to be there for this very special day! And my Bishop was very understanding and didn't have a single problem with it! I have an interview with him on the 13th of this month, and then I'll just have to meet with the Stake President as well, and then the following week, IT'LL FINALLY BE THE DAY!!!!!!! It is a bit overwhelming, and when I say a bit, I mean a freaking ton. But, I know it's the right decision, and I'll be forever blessed for doing it (: Also, I just finished the little book that I was given called "Preparing To Enter The Holy Temple" and it was AWESOME!! I'll probably read it one or two more times before the 25th just to get as much out of it as possible!

  1. aww congrats!! I'm so glad you get to go through with your family! It helps SOOOO much to have your mom there! I was beyond freaking out. I cried my eyes out the entire time. Actually I cried the night before and Josh sort of talked with me to make me feel better but I was so nervous cause I didn't know what to expect. I was super scared while we were in the temple and having family there helped, even though I was still a mess. I hope you can control your emotions that way you can enjoy the experience!
