temple square


and a special shot, just for my mother-in-law of the garden's flowers in bloom. she loved those bright colors. 


the weekend before last, robbie + i ventured to salt lake city for general conference with robbie's parents, who are LDS. it was a whirlwind 48-hour trip -- and a great time. we loved seeing his parents, and his brother and wife + their little kiddos. i've have watched several of the conferences online, so it was neat to attend a session in person. and that mormon tabernacle choir is out of this world. completely angelic. 

also: i've seen salt lake city's temple square a number of times now, but i gotta say -- she's never looked so pretty than flanked by cherry blossom trees in full bloom. it was rainy with sideswept winds, yes, but worth it to see those trees. maybe it's the inner virginian in me, but cherry blossom trees are everything. oh how i miss spring flowers! all the ones in our neighborhood were swiftly killed off by resurgent winter storms -- just trees and walls with crumpled, white-ish tissue paper looking things. breaks my spring-loving heart. take me where the cherry blossoms bloom, and my heart's forever yours.

  1. I didn't know Robbie's parents were LDS! Very cool. Was he raised LDS? These pictures are stunning!! Temple square is so beautiful during the spring, and also christmas. Of course, it's always pretty, but those times in particular. :)
