getting' hitched.

after my brother and I brought these two together in Vegas during spring break,
they've been match mates in heaven.

graduated one year.

a year ago,
specificity drove my ambition.
I knew what I wanted and where i was heading.
I was so sure, and i was willing to do whatever it took.

365 days turned all the bits and pieces upside down.
and now, i haven't a clue.
life is a lesson that is constantly taught and
now i'm left to re-discover.

a righteous summer

To finish up my last class of institute of the semester, my teacher challenged us to
take this summer and live the most righteously we've ever lived.
how cool is that? 
we have the ability to decide today, start now
and live our lives exactly how Heavenly Father would want us to.
it's because of our Savior that we can improve each day
so let's make this summer count!
as a part of that, here's a Book of Mormon reading chart
beginning this week until the day before fall semester starts (for USU at least).
take the challenge, make some goals, join me and hopefully we can stay on track!



moving out and going to college all by myself was a big step.
but when i first hauled all my clothes, bedspread, and dishes up 4 flights of stairs in rich hall last august
i had no idea how much the girls in the building would come to mean to me.
i didn't know that the friendships we'd build and the memories we'd share would 
be so golden it's almost unbelievable in retrospect.

our year was filled with dance parties and late night mcdonalds runs, kitchen/living room chilling and cozy cuddle puddles, meeting new people but always sticking together, ridiculous saved snap chat videos and so many inside jokes.  needless to say, it was crazy amazing and unforgettable.  for me, these girls made it all.  there were so many days i got through because of their warm smiles and laughter. cliche i know, but it's the clear truth.
i owe the most incredible memories to them and what each one of them brought to create our freshman year experience.

my rich 404 girls

my room-roommate, one of the most incredible people i've ever met.
i couldn't be more grateful for her best-friendship, our late night talks, her listening and patient ear, and amazing example to me.  it was a blessing to be able to live with her for 9 months.
