just some thoughts

this weekend, becca went to stay with miss in texas. can i just mention how much i like my family? 
i was able to take becca to the airport and we had a good, real talk as we drove. we are both going through some very similar experiences and it has been interesting to share thoughts and have one another fully understand.

i also "ran away" to heber!! very similar to texas! :) other than it's just moments away . . . and just up the beautiful provo canyon. i asked a friend if we could hike around provo canyon this summer - so you can be soo excited to see pics in the upcoming months. 

why heber you ask? because nik and molly live up there. molly and i met in a ward many many moons ago. she and nik started dating in the ward and we spent oodles of moments together. she is one of the treasured friends with whom time doesn't exist. months, days, or seconds can pass and it all feels the same. except, there was an evidence of time moving forward, they have an adorable little baby girl!! she and i became fast friends :) nik was on a scouting camp out, and so i slept over. molly and i talked and talked and talked. okay, honestly, she just let me talk. and when i would ask her questions, she still brought it back to me and let me talk and talk some more. typically i would feel awful for being the conversation hog. but that is why i love her - it's okay that i needed a turn. and there will be moments when she needs a turn. and then there will be moments that neither one of us needs a turn and we can just be. i am soo blessed to have her. AND that she married a guy who is so great too. did i mention that nik built his home?? who does that?!?! nik. that is who. 

i also got to be apart of celebrating the birth of lizzy! this week was her birthday! we have a sisters tradition to make and put signs out on the floor with loves notes on them. after following a melissa chalk tradition, i wrote 14 things i love about lizzy. she is one incredible young lady and becomes more incredible as she grows. if you didn't know, she is a dancer. we LOVE the movie step-up. and so i got her step-up 2. we weren't able to watch it until saturday night at 11:00 pm!! but don't worry, we stayed up to watch!!

and finally (at least for tonight), i am grateful to be the Gospel Essentials teacher. i learn so much and i love to gather thoughts from others. today, a number of people shared some thoughts - very sweet and tender ones. i am sooo lucky to learn from the people i love.
