The big day, the first leaves the nest

In January my sweet daughter started talking about a boy she met at Institute.  She didn't even know his name, but made some pretty good guesses. (They were all wrong)  At that point I had a strong impression that this was going somewhere.  In February she started dating that boy.  I mentioned that I felt it was going somewhere.   She denied it. In March, right after the baby was born, she became engaged to that boy, allowing me a final "told you so" of unmarried child motherhood.  In August they were sealed for time and all eternity in the Rexburg, Idaho temple. It was a glorious day.  They went on their honeymoon, and we had a reception when they returned in September.  It could not have been more perfect.  The stars aligned, as they seldom do, and it was perfection from start to finish.
They now have a little apartment about 5 min from our home, and are doing amazing.  He has gotten a job as a night stockman at the local grocery store, and she has stayed the course with her position as a Vet tech.  They are as happy as any couple ever was.
