Man, there has been some serious neglect up in here. Sorry about that.
Well peeps, life is awesome right now. For serious. Today I had one of those feel sorry for yourself days. You know the kind, I read a sappy love story and then cried myself into a peaceful nap. It was pathetic, really. But it kinda felt good. Because then I went to class and talked with two of my most wonderful friends, walked home in the cool breeze and even crunched some leaves. I came home and made some delicious soup and when Drew came home, he gave me a giant hug and told me everything was ok. I played in a flag football game (we totally won, but I didn't even know) and had a really great time. And then I was doing the dishes and I just thought what a wonderful life I have. I have so many blessings and wonderful things and people in my life, I should never have anything to complain about (although I believe that a good cry is nice and healthy every once in a while).
It's just that I love to be married to the sweetest, most caring, and hilarious best friend in the world. And he's cute, too. I love our tiny apartment and the fun times we have here together. I love school and all of the things I'm learning and all of the people I'm meeting. I love that I get to walk outside so much and that we live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. I love that I get to be with my family so much, they are a great strength to me and truly my best friends. I love Flow, the most addicting game ever... who let me have a smart phone?? But seriously, it's so fun. Get it. I love the atonement and that I can see the many ways that it is helping me right now and every day. I'm grateful that I can be better and that I have guidance and comfort. I love the Gospel and that I am a member of the true church. I have everything I need for peace and happiness and my life truly is good.
So, as a life lesson for me, I'll go ahead and cry sometimes. Cause by golly, it feels good. But at the end of the day I'll remember that God wants me to be happy. That's His plan and He has given me everything I need. I'll count my blessings and know that life is good!
Also, Modern Family, I'm happy about that too. Can I get an amen?

Andrew has been working on a research paper all week and he still has a long way to go...
He works pretty hard but every once in a while he needs a little break.
So, naturally, he just took a second to softly kiss and caress his bicep, and then humbly declared, "I may fail this paper, but at least I'll have big biceps."
