Yes that is right....only one month left until you know who gets home! I never thought it would come down to the end. It felt like 2 years would never ever ever pass by, and here I am down to the last month until Elder M comes home! I can't even begin to explain how I am feeling right now. It's like a roller-coaster of emotions, but I feel so blessed for so many reasons. First of all I am so grateful that he served a mission. I wouldn't change this past two years for anything in the world. Even on the loneliest of days when I missed him the most, I still wouldn't have traded any of the pain to miss out on this opportunity for both of us. It has been such a blessing to be able to grow with Imari through this whole experience. I have learned so much in these past two years about myself, and about who I am and who I want to become, and the things that really are important in this life. Another big blessing for me is how much I have grown to become close to my savior.I look at these past two years and I realize how much I needed this time to grow and to prepare for the future. I can't wait to see what the future has in store for me, and I can't wait to see this man of my dreams, who still after all this time, I can't ever seem to get off my mind:) Happy one month mark sweetheart, I will be seeing you soon!
If I ever forget how much I love Idaho all I have to do is go back during the Summer time, and I am quickly reminded of how much I really do LOVE it there! I don't know what it is about that place, but for me, the summertimes there feel magical! It was so great being able to spend some time with my family (wish I would of taken more pics:( But It was just so great to be home. There is nothing better then the feeling of being home. We played games, ate slushies, went to the lake to ride the wave-runners, roasted hot dogs and Marshmallows outside on the fire pit, ate lots of yummy food, visited Landon at Baskin Robbins, and much more! I don't know what it was about this time going home but it has never been so hard for me to leave. The whole time I was driving back to Utah I felt sad and kept feeling like I was driving in the wrong direction. Now that I am back I feel okay, but it was just such a hard weekend to have to leave from. I am so grateful for my family, and for always making coming home the best. I got in late Friday night so most of the family was asleep. My Mom came in my room at 6 in the morning cheerful as ever to come say hi and give me a hug. We talked for a minute then she left, and came back a few seconds later with some shirts that she had ordered off line for me. Welcome Home to me. It is always a treat, and my Mom is the greatest at making you feel special:) Can't wait to go back again next month!
I was able to go to one of Elder M's companion's Homecoming while I was home. I worked with his Mom, and a few uncles and Grandpa, so it was great to meet him. He had a piece of Imari in him and it made me so excited for the time when he comes home:)

Who knew Valentines Day could be so great, even when your single! I had such a great day! It started out over the weekend when my parents got new tires put on my car(Since they were bald and had wires hanging out and of coarse I had no clue) and then my Dad took it through the car wash and filled it up with gas. Then on Sunday morning I woke up to the world's best crapes made by my Mom, and heart shaped sausage. Then on Monday morning I made pink heart shaped pancakes for my roomates (My mom does this every year for us) then a few hours later I got my email from Imari....which of coarse was the sweetest thing ever! I just love him so much! I came home to sweets and valentines from my roomates. Then after school Stevo came over and brought us flowers, and card, and our favorite candy bars. I had to head to work after that and my roomates surprised me at work and brought me a heart shaped homemade pizza, a heart shaped brownie, and some juice squoze with love lol. Then when I got home I made more flowers, Candy, Chapstick, and notes from a few other neighbors! What a great day, I can officially say that I feel very loved! To end the night we watched the Time Travelers Wife...and even though it was sad and we cried, it still was a great ending to our night! And Happy Valentines Day to all of you whom I love!!!!
|Here is the yummy Dinner Kayla and Lindsey Surprised me at work with!!!|
Can I just say how much I love girl time! I don't know what I would do without it....and I have been so blessed to have some of the most amazing/fun/beautiful friends in the World! And I can't wait for all the many more fun times ahead!!!!!!! Thanks to all my girls out there-I love you all!
A few weeks ago the four of us ran the Blue Lips 5K run in benefit of the Oral Cancer Foundation! It was Stevo's first race, so that was a lot of fun being able to experience it with him. We had so much fun running in it! There is never a dull moment when Stevo is around!
I love Christmas for so many different reasons, but I would have to say that the best part is being able to spend it with the ones you love! I didn't get a lot of time off from work, but I sure was grateful for the few days that I did have to spend with my family! And what makes it even better is that it's the one time out of the year that I get to see the Miles Family!
We had some great times! We ate lots of yummy food(Of coarse...with Mom there is always yummy food...and lots of it), played lots of games, Danced a lot on the wii...my personal favorite, and had lots and lots of laughs...Christmas always comes and goes so fast, and now I can't until next year!
