In my Fab Finds post on November 22, I mentioned that I would be taking the following week off from blogging. Instead of spending time writing about my ancestors on this blog, I was spending time with living family members.
Last week, our family spent the Thanksgiving holiday together in Utah. We had a wonderful time.
On Friday, November 29, we all traveled to Salt Lake City to see the Christmas lights on Temple Square.
For those who've never been to Temple Square, the magnificent building in these pictures is the Salt Lake Temple. Construction of this temple took 40 years to complete. The groundbreaking took place on February 14, 1853 and the dedication was held in April of 1893.
The Salt Lake Temple is the largest temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
My husband and I had been to Temple Square before, but never at Christmas time.
These pictures will hopefully give you an idea of just how beautiful Temple Square is during the Christmas season.
But, being there is so much better. These photos simply can't compare with the experience of seeing the amazing beauty of Temple Square at Christmas time in person.
I'll be sharing more photos from our visit to Tempe Square in a future post.
Thanks for reading!
