We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Happy Valentine's Day!

We danced our feet off last night at the Stake Sweetheart Ball, and enjoyed chocolate covered strawberries and great company. The decorations were just awesome, and Jared and I danced so many songs. Yes, even the Macarena. Memories of stake dances came flooding back with funny memories of those "circles" everyone made to dance in (There was one big one for a whole song last night LOL) and daring people to get out of a comfort zone and boogie. We really enjoyed ourselves, and have the sore feet today to prove it!! haha

Today we got to go to the temple in Oakland when the Roa family was sealed together for time and all eternity. It was so beautiful to see them get sealed together as husband and wife, and then to watch as their three children came into the sealing room, all dressed in white. Little Lucia was barely able to reach everyone elses on the altar. She reminded me of a little angel. It was so beautiful, and certainly there was not one dry eye in the room.

Tonight we're hanging out with two kids and a pizza while their mom & dad hang out for Valentine's Day. Jared and I usually celebrate the 15th of February: the day he asked me to be his wife!!
