The boys are back in town...

All the boys are back from their missions!!!! It's been so great to reunite. I can't wait to be able to serve a mission one day so I really enjoyed hearing all about their stories. From the people to the beautiful languages and the cultures, it was so fascinating. Looking back it seems like those two years flew by and yet so very much has changed. I can't believe I'm a senior now and approaching graduation!! I'm grateful for the opportunities I've had during my college years. It's been a great ride and there's more to come!!

Everyone is getting hitched!

On my way home from NY I stopped in Northern California to go the last roommates wedding. That means I'm the only one left either not married or on a mission. Super! LOL. No I'm completely content right now with my stage in life. It's been great to travel all over to my friends homes and be apart of their weddings!! Kendall's was gorgeous. Her colors were a very bright green and deep red, beautiful contrast! Cheers to getting married!

Don't take Mum for granted.

I love this quote. It's from a book Friday Night Knitting Club, the quotes is an older woman reflecting on her relationship with her mom.

"Her friends were all awitter now that their adult daughters were on a kick of getting to know them as equals. " I want us to be friends," she'd heard that these grown children kept insisting to their mothers. Of course, what these daughters wanted was to be able to bare their souls to the one person in the world who would love them without restraint, whose approval was priceless, who would find them and their myriad life issue endlessly fascinating. It is a beautiful gift, thought Anita, to have your mother be your very dearest and best friend. It is quite another to try to be hers. Then you'd have to actually get to know her. As a real person"

Just wanted to say thanks to my mother for being my best friend. Surely I don't know the gravity or ability of a mothers love, but I do have an unconditional love that is pretty darn close. I hope she considers me her best friend as well as I try to treat her as the amazing real person she is.

Back with my girls and ready for our first night out. Social life is a little different now, but its so great to be back with my girlfriends. I haven't seen anyone in soooooo long. Rexi has even changed a little while I've been away. There's a new cupcake show with hot coco and goodies and a brand new huge bookstore. This semester is BYU-I's most full fall semester!!! There's loads of new people to meet :)
