I have a blog?

I just had the most incredible week of my life. 

I know Heavenly Father knows and loves each one of us.

I know we can receive answers to our prayers.

I know that polo shirts are the easiest to wear garments with.

I know that the youth of the Church are incredibly strong.

I know that we can do hard things.

I know that eating cafeteria food for a week makes you feel like a big blob.

I know that I cannot wait to wear the name of Jesus Christ on my chest every day.

I know this church is true.


I've grown a foot or two!

I have been called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I will be serving in the Adriatic North mission, speaking Croatian for 18 months starting July 16, 2012! My mission includes the countries of Slovakia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. I cannot express how blessed I feel to be at a place in my life where I get to go on this great adventure and share my testimony with a people that I didn't really know existed! 

 Seriously though.

I'M GOING TO CROATIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ON A MISSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know that Heavenly Father helps lead us to where we need to be. He knows YOU. He loves YOU.

(Here are some pictures of Croatia......I'm dead.)


So... It's December 1st.

I would like to publicly thank my forever friend, Ashley "Helga" Palmer, for the shout out to blog every day in December. What a fun challenge!

With it being the first day of December, and my favorite time of the year (just ask Michael, he could have sworn Christmas started on October 1st with how many Christmas activities we've been doing lately!) this is the only thing I have to say today:

In Noteworthy we've been polishing up all our Christmas music. It just brings a whole new spirit to the group! I'm so thankful for all this music that can help brighten my mood.

So, pop in your favorite Christmas Album (on me), sit back in the Christmas tree's splendor and sip some hot cocoa! It's that time of year!

I hope the beginning of your Christmas season is as magical as ever!


On a typical Friday Night...

...I wouldn't be spending the night taking pictures of my hair, but what the hey. When you like something, you've got to document it!

Thanks, meg for the inspiration!
