Tyler and I went to the temple last night. I hadn't been in over a year! That is far too long and a little embarrassing to mention! I know I didn't go while I was pregnant and I haven't gone since Danica's been born so that's 16 months right there. Oh wow! We have been to weddings in the temple in that time, but still.
I missed that special feeling, felt only in the temple. I missed everyone walking around in white with smiles and using hushed voices. I loved that when I read the little information on the person who's work I was doing, I was able to feel a little connection to her.
This year, Tyler and I (with the help of his sister Candice who will be babysitting) have decided to go out at least once every month. One month we'll go to the temple and the next month we'll go on a date, and switch back and forth. Both of those goals are a step up from where we are now, and I'm excited!
