Hello to all of my fabulous blog readers. Today is a good day. I'm not even sure where to begin. But today I felt very strongly that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be. I'm really grateful for that confirmation. I really feel like I needed it. I've felt extremely overwhelmed with my new job and have found myself wondering this week if moving here was the right choice. But attending church today told me that I am supposed to be living here in Provo. It wasn't one particular thing that was said in church. But it was the overall feeling. Let me explain a little bit of what I mean by that. 
For those that follow me on Facebook you know that last week (my first week in this ward) I had to fill out a "ward application" (which basically felt like I was applying for a job. Besides the basic questions, the application asked things such as: "Are you willing to date while attending this ward?", "Are you willing to attend church on a regular basis …

I can not believe that I'm actually sharing these pictures online! What am I thinking? Anyway, at the beginning of the summer I showed cute Cole this program on my computer called "Photo Booth".

Somehow, my sister got away without getting in any of these silly pics. How did that happen?? She's a smart woman lol... But Cole and Maliya are now in love!! On my last day in Colorado we sat at the computer and took several pics...we even got baby Madison involved. As you can see from the picture above...they are both hooked!! And lets be honest, I had a bla…

I should've posted this a long time ago. But posting this makes it final. {Although it's been final for two months.} I really wish I would've shared this sooner so that I'd remember all of the little details. I actually kept notes in my phone. But I lost my note. :( 
On moving day my amazing mother drove the biggest truck ever for me. By the way, it was WAY too big. But that's okay. Some awesome guys from my ward showed up and helped pack the truck. They were amazed at how prepared I was. Several guys that came to help told me that not many people are actually packed up when you come to help them move. They said I made it easy because all they had to do was move the furniture and boxes into the truck. I was kinda blown away by those comments. People actually expect them to come pack their house for them? Wow! In my opinion, it's nice enough of them to come pack the truck for me. They should not have to pack my house too. Once we got everything packed into the …
