My goal


Is to make every single day count. 
I read a quote on a blog I follow. In a nutshell it said that we don't know how long we are going to be separated from our Savior here on earth, so we need to make every moment count. Let the difficult experiences define us, and make us better. 

Move forward every day.

Love these.

Not that I find joy in other people's pain. 


But sometimes a good fail blog picture makes everything better. 

**I post this only because I know that would be me on a really GOOD day attempting the hurdles**

Random Ramblings from Draper

I am in UTAH!!! 
I love it here in Draper. 
Like absolutely love it. 

I have learned a lot while I've been here. 
I've been reminded that picking up your whole life and moving isn't easy. 
Not one bit. 
I've learned that I am shy, but I can break out of that...and I have to say, I have met some of the funnest girls since I've been here. 
I've learned that having the IKEA sign outside your front door (literally) is a great way to exercise self control. 
Same thing to be said about Cafe Rio, only thats right outside my office window. 
I've been reminded how fun it is to meet up with people from the mission. I got to go to dinner with one of my favorite families....oh my. Therapeutic. 
I've been reminded the power of peace that comes from reading scriptures daily.
I've been reminded how much I really do love having roommates.


I have moved into the BEST YSA ward on planet earth. 
seriously. 
Sorry Fresnans.....heritage ward no longer tops my list. 
My ward is phenomenal and amazing and perfect. 
The nicest, most friendly people EVER. 
The bishopbric is amazing, the girls are awesome. I just love it. 
There are activities multiple times a week, and that has been a tender mercy for getting to know people. 

I'm trying really hard to be more grateful. 
And can I just say I'm so grateful I moved. 
It has been stressful.
It has been way harder than I thought it would.
I'm trying to rediscover who I am, re-find myself. 
I'm trying to start fresh in every area.

But it is worth it. 
And I am SO grateful to be here. 
so so so so grateful.
