my happy place.

My awesome cousin, Mandie, came down from Chicago to spend the weekend with us.  {More on that later.}  One of the things we did while she was here was an early morning trip to the temple.   There's just something special about going there first thing in the morning before you have a chance to think about much else.

"I think there is no place in the world 
where I feel closer to the Lord 
than in one of His holy temples."
- President Thomas S. Monson -

Happy Monday!
