what have you learned?

Sunday, June 30, 2013

At church my bishop posed a question to us. He said, "what have you learned this past year?"
This got me thinking, what have I really learned. The first thing that comes to my mind is the aching pain that comes from missing people. I have learned that family is what truly matters. They are the late night phone calls, the sweet text messages, the love thats always there. It's remarkable to think that I even made it this long with out seeing them. Seven months did not even sound that long back in January.
But the distance is about to end for a few weeks and I'm so excited.
I can almost image what its going to be like to see them. I see tight, losing your breath hugs from sharon. My dad smiling from ear to ear, Alba gazing over at him. The laughing you can hear from miles away. And just being with them. Ok three weeks...please please go by fast!

her name is monica

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Monica is one of the sweetest person you will meet. She has a remarkable love for the people around her & you immediately feel comfortable with her. I was so blessed to have met her at the beginning of my BYU-I experience. I think the one thing that impresses me along with many other awesome qualities she has is her ability to listen. she has got to be the best listener & I sure like to talk her ear off. We are planning to live together in the winter & I'm beyond excited. this girl is a keeper and a forever friend.
Also she reads my blog (which makes me like her even more), so hey girl hey!

a list

A list of things:

my sweet friend monica took these photos of me. They are beyond amazing and she is quite the photographer! I also took photos of her & have decided she's the prettiest! I'll post them soon.

I got my hair ombre. I'm not sure how I feel about it.

I called my dad and talked to him for almost two hours over a two day period. Is it obvious I miss home.

I was reminded that you have to make your own happiness.

Being away from home has made me think about how much your family matters. I miss them more than anything. I can just hear their laughter, their sarcasm, their love.

Going on adventures, taking photos, designing, & laughing are my favorite things.

Trying times are times for trying.
