Sooooo I have definitely been out of the blogging world for quite a while...not without stalking of course....but posting is for sure not something that has been on my list of things to do. However my dear friend Suzette kindly reminded me that I need to keep this up! So because I know she does it and is so good at it, my attempt is to now and continually keep it going! Sadly I was trying to think of fun things I've done but I got nothing. So therefore I decided to give a shout out about Valentines day!
Soooo this weekend is we all know...the glorious holiday for celebrating love! Personally I don't think you should focus on one day a year to do this, but it is such a fun holiday with couples feeling special...and not to mention the treats! I joke often how Im such a loner because my three wonderful roommates all have boys and my love life is well....non existent- BUT honestly I really have nothing to complain about! I have such a great life and I feel so THANKFUL and BLESSED! So therefore I am going to list a few things that I love in my life in respects to February 14th!
-My Family...I have the greatest parents in the world and I feel so lucky to call them mine! They are so supportive and are always encouraging helping me to believe I can accomplish anything. They love me infinitely and they have made sure I've known that every day of my life. My brothers are so great as well! They truly are my protectors and would do anything for me. Not to mention my grandparents and how wonderful they are!!
-The gospel....I love love love this gospel and am so grateful for its power in my life. How amazing that I am a member of the church of Christ and how grateful I am for him and my Heavenly Father and the comfort and love they show me everyday
-My friends....Seriously they are all amazing! Enough said. Whether I have friends I've known for years, or even just a semester, I am so blessed and I love each one so much
-My roommates...Now keep in mind all three of these ladies are also in the "friend" category :) but I have to give a special shout-out to them. I LOVE these girls! Hearing about drama and tension in so many other apartments, I couldn't be more grateful for Amy, Ali, and Kylee. They are all so sweet and I have especially loved becoming closer and better friends with each of them. They make life so easy to live with and are there whenever you need them. I love these girls so very very much!!
-Mesa....haha funny thing to say I love, but I do! I get to go home this weekend actually and spend 4 days in good ol M-town and I could not be more excited! The reason I love it though is this....it holds my family, old friends, wonderful neighbors and people, warm weather, and last but not least, the BEST memories I have ever had. I have had more fun and lessons learned in Mesa than anywhere else thus far and that town is truly a place that I love
-BYU...Now to begin dont get me wrong but I have definitely had my fair share of venting sessions about BYU, and college in general, I guess you could say. But this university in a school that I love. Well in better terms, its a bitter-sweet relationship. After going to MCC I feel so grateful to go to a school where the students share your beliefs and standards, class often starts with a prayer, and the teachers(most of the time) really do just want to get the best out of you so they can help get the best FOR you. The classes are hard but you learn a lot and I am thankful for my parents support for letting me come here!
*A few other things*
-snow(when you dont have to walk in it :)
-treats (Chocolate especially)
-mexican food(preferably in mesa)
-summer bike rides
So these are just a few things of which I LOVE...I really am looking forward to this holiday and hope everyone has such a great one...I know I will since Im so excited for my valentines date with the parentals! ha! :)
