I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. I've contemplated on many occasions rather I should quit this blog or not. Each time I am inspired that I should not. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever! This I know. Our family continues to live and to love and this is our story...

the wedding in florida

This past week we traveled to Florida to celebrated the marriage of
Ryan and Morgan.

It was a bit different from the actual marriage in Utah.
In Utah we had the only snow storm of the entire year on March 3rd.
In Florida it had rained in the morning but by evening it was beautiful.

Both Utah and Florida were magical.





I'm still waiting for pictures from the Utah reception.
For now I will post pictures from the open house in Florida.

The open house was held in the
 Gardner's Cottage at Maclay Gardens.
It's a beautiful place. 

















Everything was perfect.
