Thanksgiving 2011

I love Thanksgiving.  As much as I love Christmas, I really do like to take the time to appreciate all the blessings I have in my life.  I try to be thankful all the time, but I especially like to when it's Thanksgiving.  I have way too many things to list to be thankful for, but some favorites that come to mind start with this guy...
Don't mind my awkward "brotherly" hug
who makes life so grand.  We're still in the newlywed phase and there's still days when I have watery eyes and tears stream down my face when I have to leave him and go to work ha ha.  I'm so grateful for those feelings and our awesome relationship.  I'm perfectly happy whenever we're together whether it's grocery shopping or a fun adventure.
I'm teaching a lesson on personal revelation in Relief Society on Sunday and it's brought to mind a lot of experiences I've had.  I'm grateful for personal revelation because without it I probably wouldn't have chosen to marry Bryce in the temple, chosen to go to Weber and study nursing, learned the gospel is true and have a strong testimony, avoid dangerous situations, and made many other choices that have led me along a path that so far has brought me so much happiness.  I have an awesome family I'm excited to spend eternity with.  I have two jobs that I love with co-workers that are so fun.  I'm just about to graduate and am so excited!  I was truly blessed to have survived the past 5 1/2 years.  I'm just full of gratitude for life right now and I love having mushy gushy feelings about it all.  I am so looking forward to this holiday season and I'm sure I'll have some pics to share when it's over!  And it always goes by way too fast so it will be time again before I know it.  Happy Holidays!    


  1. I'm glad someone likes Bryce ;) HAHAHA! Just kidding, I love him too :) He is a good brother. Can't wait to see you graduate!

  2. I'm sad I didn't see you guys while we were in Utah. Maybe next time! When are you coming to visit? Last August? Just kidding.
