A Bit of MagPad History

39 years ago today Scott asked me to marry him at this very spot just above the Provo Temple.   
At the time Scott had recently started a new job working at the MTC (Missionary Training Center) in Provo, Utah, across the street from the Provo Temple.  He asked me to pick him up from work that night.  We drove to the grassy hill above the temple, sat on the grass, and enjoyed the view of the temple and the Utah Valley.  He then said, "I want to marry you, Kathleen"  No cameramen hiding in bushes, no music playing in the background.  Just a simple statement.  I laughed, and then agreed.  Then the sprinklers went on and we went home and ate cake that Scott made earlier in the day to celebrate the happy occasion.  It's 39 years later. We think we might be looking just a bit different now, but you be the judge.

  1. I think the current fad for "marriage proposals" is mightily overrated! Yours sounds wonderful - just like you!!
