Princess Castles

Over the weekend my sister-in-law Lisa hosted a bridal shower for my niece Lindsay.
Lindsay will be getting married in the Provo, Utah Mormon Temple on Saturday.  
We are excited and proud of her!
Her decision to marry in the temple was something she and her
 fiance have been preparing for since they were small children.  
Mr. Nielson and I were also married in the Provo temple.
We live close by it and every time Lottie sees it, she reminds me that
I got married there.  
Except she calls it "my princess castle".
And I remind her that I hope she will get married there someday too.
With all my heart I will do everything in my power to make that happen.  
It is my responsibility as her mother to teach, prepare and help her get there,
 and not just Lottie- but all my children.

Thank you Lindsay for you incredible example to your cute tweenager cousins.

 (this is the Provo temple (or my Princess castle) where Mr. Nielson and I 
were married, and where Lindsay and Keaton will be married.)

And, a BIG thank you to all of you who added your advice
and words of wisdom on Instagram for the happy couple!
Some of the comments were darling, some had so much truth, 
and some were so silly we died laughing!
