And They Lived Happily Ever After

Wow--where do I even start? By saying I'm the happiest I've ever been? Or that this blog will soon be changing to All That is The Spackmans? Or that the greatest guy I've ever met who is absolutely perfect for me loves me? Cuz all of those things would be true.

Last night Jared and I went to the Logan Temple to do a session. We walked out at the end into a perfect Spring night--warm and clear, and I thought I couldn't possibly be any happier. We started to walk out to his car, but before we got to the stairs going down to the parking lot he pulled me over to a bench that sits just west of the temple and looks over the whole valley. We sat there and talked, and I have to admit the thought crossed my mind that this could be the moment, but then I brought myself back to reality when I remembered the ring wouldn't be done for another couple weeks.

We chatted for a minute, and then he turned to me and asked "T, why do you love me?" I told him the only thing that seemed to encompass it all: "I love how happy you make me." I asked him why he loved me, and he said "I love that I get to bring you to the temple." And he reached into his temple bag, got down on one knee, and said "Tierra Anne, Will you Marry Me?" Guess what my answer was!?

Right now, in this moment, everything is perfect and I couldn't ask for anything more.

Tierra, I like how you were thinking you couldn't be any happier after you did a temple session. It's the effect love has on you, but even more, it's the effect living the gospel has on you! Your marriage is going to be the best when you're putting the Lord first and I am SO happy for you. It was good to run into you the other day.
