Quick trip to Salt Lake

 Me and my sister made a quick trip up to Salt Lake to go to my brother's temple wedding.  It was short notice, so we had to make it a quick trip.  We drove up Thursday morning and came home Friday morning.  It was an amazing trip and one trip I won't forget.  This sweet lady picture above is the one who encouraged me to write up my patterns.  She just kept saying, "write it up, Judi" - so naturally I had to hand deliver her my book.  We worked at the Fabric Center in West Jordan together for a couple of years and that was seriously the best job in the world at the time.  I am so grateful to her for believing in me.  
 
 Temple Square in Salt Lake is hard to beat in December.  I have said this before, but it is still true - you need to see it in person.  It is so beautiful and this picture doesn't even capture a fraction of the amazing Christmas lights.  I had the best time with my mom and dad and siblings, I am so grateful for my family. 

The best part of going up to Salt Lake is going home.  I grew up here and it will always be home to me.  I walked out of my parents house to see the amazing orange sunset (this picture does not give it justice) and I just had to take the picture.  Life is wonderful!  Seriously.  

On another happy note, I finally finished a quilt.  I will share the whole quilt next week.  Stay tuned.

You are right, Judi, the Temple Square is spectacular - any time of year. I remember most the wall of one building that made a mirror reflection of the mountains... hard to imagine any other building could draw your attention away from the Temple, but that did...

Isn't it wonderful to have someone who believes in you? Such a gift and I know she was pleased to see you succeed.
