With that said, they chose to be married in the Portland, OR temple on December 29th. I lived in Portland for 4 years (I moved away exactly 10 years ago). I loved living there and I loved this temple. CK and I (even though we went to bed about 2 am) got up early and headed to the temple to do a session. It is just an opportunity that we could not pass up (particularly as our goal is to visit all U.S. temples before we die). Here is what the temple looked like as we drove up. It is so beautiful both inside and outside. I miss coming here. Throughout our session, I felt the Spirit so strongly and I love being in the temple. It is so cool to me how being in the temple, ANY temple, feels like coming home.
What a wonderful day! I loved it. Loved it. Loved it. I am so grateful for Eternal Families and I am so grateful for the great people that the Lord sent to be my family, both when I was a child and now as a mother. I am so blessed.
