Autumn Wedding at Salt Lake Temple

Our daughter Caitlyn married her sweetheart Jeremy on a crisp October day.
(My husband and I were married 34 years before in this same spot a week before their date.)
I wanted to finally share some of the gorgeous pictures taken by her talented
photographer, Talia Jensen of
It was so hard to narrow them down to just these few.
(I'll share some fun ones from the reception in my next post.)

Lovely London Shoppes

 One of my favorite things in London is all of the inviting store fronts.
This trip we were determined to find the famous Peggy Porschen Cakes.
Believe me, we walked a long ways to find it!
And it was so pretty and worth it for the photo op.
However, I will be honest and say that when we went inside and saw
that a single cupcake was $12 American, we turned around and walked out:)

 But really!
These beautiful store fronts!

 Courtney loved this store in Covent Garden.
The Moomin comic books 
(by Swedish-speaking Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson)
are some of her favorites.

 Some of the most delicious chocolate ever!

The Last First

Cammy and Cosmo

Our youngest started college today.
Those freshman sure are looking younger;)
Or perhaps I'm getting older...

Warwickshire and Oxford

 Warwick Castle

We visited Warwickshire on an unusually sunny day.
In fact, most of our time in England was filled with sunshine.
Many of the locals informed us that this was not the norm.
And this is true, as our former visits included regular rain.

When I was a young girl I was always fascinated my medieval England.
The legends of  King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table.
Being at this awesome location reminded me of that.


(Do you recognize 'Mr. Tumnus' from The Chronicles of Narnia?)

It was fascinating to hear the stories of the brilliant minds who studied here.
Among those students; C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Lewis Carroll.
