Its been kinda long!

Its the begining of September and I find myself thinking that I've had so much to blog but very little to actually do it.. SO this one is going to be a wrap up of the IMPORTANT things that have happened in the last month or so! 
# 1~ There is only one thing so dont hold your breath!



Brandon and I got sealed this month. It was a bittersweet thing actually. One that really to this day Im not sure if i should laugh or cry about!  It was such an ordeal that just thinking about it gives me heart palatations! Between telling important people and trying to keep it a secret,  finding Payten a white dress that didnt have the Virgin Mary or Crosses on it then, her cutting sleeves in one that finally worked, it just turned into a feasco! The day of the sealing turned out to quite nice ... For a bit... one of those "quite before the storm" type of things.  But once inside the temple it was nice to see the people that literally mean the WORLD to Brandon and I. A few couldn't make it but i know they were there in spirit and i know that if they could, they would have come and to you guys i tell you I LOVE YOU! 

The Actual Sealing.

I cant tell you a lot about it Cuz to be honest i was a bit DISTRACTED! There were so many things going on in my head that i couldn't for the life of me concentrate on what he was saying!  I think he was talking about the history of the church and the covanats we make, and why we make them. But like i said that's a guess, cuz all i could think was ~PLEASE LORD MOVE THIS ALONG I'M NOT SURE HOW MUCH MORE I CAN TAKE OF THIS!~ So if you want the specifics ask someone else that was there cuz i dont know! ( Is that bad to say?) 

Afterwards & Afterthoughts

I'm super excited that now when i tell Brandon ~ Buck it up buddy your stuck with me forever ~ Its actually true! I really love him and have for a very long time and 4 years ago when we got married i knew that one day this day would come and im happy that it finally did. I loved seeing Payten in the temple with her little white dress. Now that is a thing i will never never forget! That image is forever engraved in my heart! 
When brandon and i got home that night he asked me ~ So do you feel any different ~ my response ~ No not really am i suppose to? Now if you die tomorrow or in the near future heck yeah ill feel different, but for now your just the same old brandon and im the same old lorena.~  So now to you all i ask is that wrong? The way i look at it is we have been married 4 years now its just forever. It doesn't (at least in my mind) make the last four years mean any less or the years to come mean any more. We are married and We love each other and now we just cant get rid of each other. ( See i told you guys i was blunt and will say whatever im thinking!) 

Over-all I'm happy its done and that i dont have to worry about it anymore. Now i know that if we die i'll for sure see brandon and payten again oneday! And that friends is the best feeling in the world! 

Here are a few pictures that a very important person took. Girly i love you with all my heart... you are like family to me... and the day wouldn't have been the same without you! I'll never be able to tell you how much it meant to have you and C.H. there. Just thinking about it makes me want to cry!
Love you!!!!
