after skating around on the ice singing frozen at the top of our lungs
we took a break and drank soul warming hot chocolate
served by our bishop and his cute wife.
i really do love where i live and the people i live with.
i mean look at that beautiful view, 
how often do you get to glide over frozen water
with the house of the Lord on the hill above you?
made my soul smile :)

 the most lovely roommate :)

 I really do have the best ward and bishopric :)



she was just a young girl trying to capture the light from the stars.


hermana frodsham.

emotion overwhelmed her when she read it--especially the spanish speaking part.

after family and other friend hugs, it was my turn.
her embrace was heavy with gratitude.
"thanks for everything you do for me."
tears swelled in our eyes and i knew this was true joy.
it quickens my breath and shakes me soul.
i'm grateful beyond belief for you too hermana frodsham,
toronto is lucky to have you in june.



you've made it through the first quarter and you did so well.
now that you've got a footing, second quarter bring it on.

sometimes trying to reach an 'ideal'
can be very restricting in itself.
the pressure to be 'perfect', 
put on by society, peers, or even your self,
can feel heavy and 
can cause discouragement.
the attempt can get you trapped.
this pretty word can carry this context,
so i have portrayed it in a way
that displays the opposite of its meaning.


the most Astounding Fact.

"and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator."

Alma 30:44



people make it worth it.
people make a monotonous life spontaneous.
find the right people. they will help.

i've become the most worried and anxious i've ever been.
i've decided that needs to change.
today, i told a friend that only we have the power to change ourselves.
so i'm taking my own advice and deciding. 
here's to a new semester and new adventures.
here's to making each week special and not letting life slip by any more.
