capitol hill blossoms

Last week Nik picked me up from work one day and we headed up to the Utah State Capitol to see all the cherry blossoms!  They were so pretty and made us want to go to Washington DC to see all the cherry blossoms there.  Hopefully we will get to go one day!




I've never been up to the capitol to see the blossoms so it was a lot of fun.  One of the good things about working downtown is being so close to so many beautiful places including Temple Square and the state capitol building.  My favorite blossoms are the pink ones right around the Salt Lake temple.  They are always so amazing.




I'm glad that Nik and I got to go on this little adventure.  It reminds us how blessed we are and to see all the beauty around us.  Sometimes you just need to remember to look for it.  Can't wait for many more adventures to come this spring and summer!

general conference

 My parents gave us tickets so we got to attend the Saturday afternoon session.  There's nothing like watching conference at the conference center!  You can feel the spirit so strong when President Monson walks in and it immediately goes silent and everyone stands up.  It's incredible!

 



The talks are always amazing so I thought I'd share a few of my favorite quotes.  It's so hard to pick a few favorites because each talk is always so good!  After conference we headed over to Temple Square.  It was so pretty to see the blossoms and all the tulips out.  Heavenly Father sure has blessed us with all of His beautiful creations.


I love hearing the counsel from the Prophet and Apostles every six months.  We can't wait to get a copy of the conference ensign so that we read each talk again together and apply the things we learn into our lives.
