I Done Been Baptized

Today, I was baptized into this amazing church.

I was introduced to it ah.. over a year ago. By this amazing individual. Who means the world to me.

I was baptized by this elder. I chose him because he has so much enthusiasm for the church. Because he's the one who asked me if I wanted to be baptized. And..for so many other reasons. But mostly because I wanted it to be him. If it couldn't be boyfriend, I wanted it to be him.

My baptism was attended by these people. I'm so glad.. SO so glad they decided to trek down here from Utah, just to see this. Boyfriend has a great family.

There were other people there as well.. people I didn't know, but who made me feel fantastic. Like the guy who talked about my smile. Hi, I don't even have a great smile but he acted like it was the most beautiful thing ever.
I guess I had that 'just baptized glow' ;)

that's funny that you would say that about your smile cause when i was looking at your pictures i was thinking, "wow, i really like her smile".
CONGRATS!!! i'm so stoked for you. if you ever get the chance, go to temple square in salt lake to wander (it's so beautiful, and the lion house has the best rolls) and see the joseph smith movie--it's pretty much amazing and where i really got my testimony of the resoration.
