Well January was kinda crazy. I was trying to get my life back together after the holidays. We went on vacation in October and November. Then Christmas came along and my birthday. I also spent all January trying to recover from being sick and my data disaster. Now it’s already mid February… Crazy! Good news! My computer is cleaned. The laundry is finally caught up and my apartment looks decent. I feel like I can actually sit down and write a nice blog post cause my kids are taking naps. So here we go!
My old roommate Catherine came into town and she wanted an updated family picture.
Catherine and Dalton said they didn’t want another picture in front of fall colors nor did they want her pictures to look like engagement pictures. So this is what we came up with:
Location: 341 S. Main Street, Salt Lake City, Utah - Alleyway Between Maxwell’s and Array Salon
Time: We did dusk/twilight but it didn’t really matter too much because this area is in between tall buildings that block the sun.
I wanted to point out how good they were at posing!!! They came up with a lot of creative husband and wife / couple poses.
So, I want to write a little more about Catherine. She was one of the seven girls I ended up rooming with during my first year of college. She is amazing! She has so many talents especially in writing and journalism. My favorite thing about Catherine is that she makes everyone feel genuinely loved.
Every guy loved Catherine and wanted to date her. She ended up waiting for Dalton while he was on his 2 year LDS mission. They got married in the Bountiful Utah Temple in December of 2011.
Catherine and Dalton have been married for a little over two years and it’s obvious that they are really happy.
So what’s their secret? Why are they so happy? How are they making their marriage work?
I asked her specifically about how has their decision of being married in a LDS temple has helped their marriage.
This is what Catherine said:
“Because we were married in the temple, we are able to connect every choice we make in our lives to our overall purpose and ultimate destiny. Our journey together is real. When we face trials and uncertainties in life, we can always find joy in knowing there is a purpose and a plan for us. The temple made us an eternal team, and we are always reminded of that when we go back to the temple. This encourages us to focus all of our attention on being the best supporter we can of our teammate’s goals and dreams.”
