Happy Birthday Josh!

Josh and I are getting up there, we are both 27 now. This sounds so cheesy, but I really fell in love with Josh the very first time I saw him. I met Josh in the hall way at the MTC while we were both working :) I was running camera for the Mission President Seminar and Josh was a Tagalog Teacher. I never thought I would meet the man I was suppose to marry in the MTC, but it truly was meant to be. I don't want to get all mushy on a public blog, but I really do feel blessed that I was able to meet one of the neatest men on this earth and allowed to keep him for all eternity.

Happy Mother's Day!

This is what we got Josh's Mom for Mother's Day. It is a great idea for anybody to give as a gift. You always need stamps. I have to give a huge thanks to my wonderful sister-in-law Melissa for providing the beautiful cherry blossom background to this picture.

Holy cow 10 years ago I was 17 and to be honest that was the hardest part of my life, but also sent me on a journey of getting closer to our Heavenly Father.

My old Visiting Teacher is FAMOUS!!

So I had this AMAZING Visiting Teacher in my old ward named Darcie. She is one of the most caring people I have ever met. I remember seeing her at Church one Sunday and I thought it would be so cool to get to know that girl. Lucky for me she became my Visiting Teacher so she was forced to get to know me :) We instantly became friends and I also realized her husband was one of my film school buddies! Darcie has become one of my most loved people on this planet. I had known Darcie for a few months and I knew she could sing like an angel, but she never told me she was a superstar with an album! So here she is with her charming husband Adam. Canoe music featured them here
