Happiness is Found in the Journey

"Happiness is not a destination but a way of life."

Today was fairly ordinary and yet extra-ordinary.  Average but above average.  Today was simply happy!

One of those days that the little things make you feel at peace with the world.  I live for days like today.  I'm striving to make more days like today.  I want to be able to find joy in the journey. To stop constantly looking back or forward but instead look inward.

"Life by the yard is hard but by the inch it's a cinch." -Thomas S. Monson

It is impossible to pick just one photo because no girl is ever feeling just one emotion that day.
A good day to wear a U-State shirt and live in Logan!
Tomorrow holds good things.

Blessed Beyond Measure

Rich Hall #404

It was not by chance that I got put in a room with these beautiful gals.

I prayed and prayed about it. Stressed and worried about it. Wished on stars about it.
Heavenly Father was listening.
We are all so different. We come from different places. We like different things and have different goals.
Different and yet destined to be together.
I've said I got lucky. Luck had nothing to do with it. I've been blessed.

Missionary Madness

I'm one of them...

I always said I would never be one of those girls. I made fun of those girls. Call it karma. Call me a hypocrite. This is my life. Sending and waiting for letters week after week. I don't know why I think my relationship is any different from the hundreds of other girls out there. I really want it to be for the fact of not wanting to be main stream or thought of as a band-wagoner. If you knew the kid you wouldn't blame me for going against everything I ever said in regards to "waiting for a missionary".
It has been
102 days
3 months and 10 days
14 weeks and 4 days
0.28 years.
However you look at it it's all the same... it hasn't been very long. Yet sometimes it feels like it never happened. Like it was something I watched in a movie or dreamed in a dream. That is why I keep writing. Why I obsessively check the mail. I'm afraid of forgetting how I felt 102 days ago.

It's kinda like a Blog Prologue

Forget all the rules.

I often find myself having the urge to post something but don't because it was too much or too far. Seeing it on my Facebook page or instagram profile gives me a strange sense of satisfaction. However, for various reasons I don't post everything I have the desire to. It may cross the "things we don't post about" line or it's just too personal for all my "friends" and "followers". This blog fulfills my need to post while still having good social media etiquette. I like the idea of posting and not checking to see many 'likes' it gets. The rules don't apply here. Let the double posting, the awkward, the preachy, the prophetic, and the annoying romantic quotes, poems and fantasies proudly live here! Cheers to shamelessly posting whatever my heart desires!

Monumental Moment- Post 1

Every story has a beginning.

What do you put on your ever first blog post? I may be the only one to ever read it but it is still a big decision. The first post is a little like a first impression-You only get one and it impacts so much of what comes next.
That's really the question. What will come next?
