I look at this on "those" days. :)
Try to remember that when I think I am not doing enough, I am doing just fine.

Temple Square

This week (before I even got to Utah) started off not how I expected. I got a call Sunday night that my 1st Counselor in my RS Presidency was moving to Utah that following day. I was more shocked then anything. Sad at first but suddenly had a peaceful feeling about it all.
Didn't actually talk to Cathy till later that week but she sounded so good and happy again.
We decided to meet up on Friday night and go play. We met at her Grandma's house and then we went to Temple Square. I love this place.
The peaceful feeling that I get there is so amazing. We walked around for a couple of hours and had too much fun just talking and enjoying the scenery.

Trying to take a picture in front of the Temple

We tried so many times to get this!

After my visit with an amazing friend and hours of endless conversation it was time for me to officially say goodbye to her as my 1st Counselor. I know that I will see her all the time, but still a bitter sweet.
This day was the perfect ending to the week. Such an amazing week to be with family, friends, and to be able to just reflect on what is really important in life.

Alissa's BYU Graduation

Being up in Utah has been wonderful. Seeing family. Enjoying the weather. Just loving life.
The reason I came up here was for Alissa's Graduation.
I am so proud of her and this accomplishment.

Gardner Village

Gardner Village is a WONDERFUL and HAPPY place! It's a quilters heaven. I went with my mom and sister-in-law Kim, and niece Emily.
Emily was so excited to feed the ducks. She knew just where to go.
Had her piece of bread ready and was just so excited.

Emily and I
She kept getting closer and closer to the edge. I was so nervous she was going to fall in!
I LOVE this place. Especially at Halloween and Christmas time. It's just a fun place to shop and spend an afternoon. I purchased some fun patterns to start quilting new projects! SO EXCITED! I feel like I'm getting so old! :)
