I wasn't going to blog about it because I sort of hate blogging.
It takes me forever but I gave in and felt I needed to. So grateful for Trevor and for our marriage. I don't know how I could ever live without him.
Trev surprised me with a night stay at the
Waldorf Astoria in Park City.
We ate great food and lounged by the pool and enjoyed our stay.
I can't believe it has already been a year since we tied the knot. I will never forget that day and the way I felt. So sure and so happy. I loved having so many loved ones their who supported Trevor and I. It made me grateful for life and for
families who we share it with.
Today is also Father's Day. So grateful for my poppsi. He truly is so great and if you know him he's probably the funniest guy you ever did meet. He really is so nice to everyone he comes in contact with. He also does so much for his family. I really do love him so much even though I can be a pain of a daughter. I remember this time last year I was getting so emotional about getting married because I thought so much about how I have always been my Dad's little girl. I was his only daughter so I felt so attached at this time last year. However, getting married has only made our family closer and I still feel like I will always be his princess. So grateful for Trevor's Dad as well. His example means so much to me. He plays such a huge role in our lives and I truly am so grateful for him.
Trevor and I have been watching our wedding videos tonight.
They captured the day perfectly and I love reliving that day. Hope you enjoy. It captures everything that means so much to me this day-my husband, family, my dad and my grandpa for father's day, and best friends!
I am a little late to be discussing Mother's Day but I just couldn't do another post until I have written something about our Mothers.
Trevor and I are both the youngest in our families so I feel us both to be very close to our Mama's. I am the youngest of three boys so my Mom and I have really stuck together over the years. We are best friends and I still have to call her every day about something or another. She drops everything to help her kids. She really is the most selfless woman I know. She is so talented and an incredible example I can't say enough about her.
I don't think you will find a kinder person in the world than Trevor's Mom. She really is so nice to everyone and knows how to have a good time. I am so lucky I gained another incredible Mother. I have always felt our Mom's to be very similar in the fact that they are constantly sacrificing for their families. I never see either of our Mom's take a break or sit down. They are always playing with the Grand kids, making meals, cleaning up the house, running errands, or traveling to see their kids. I can't say enough good things about the both of them.
We were able to visit temple square on Mother's day. The flowers were gorgeous. I love Temple Square.
On a side note... I graduated from college a couple of weeks ago. It feels great! I loved going to commencement with all of my other fellow graduates. I felt so accomplished! My favorite part of graduation was Elder Richard G. Scott's speech during our commencement. I have to share what he told us because I felt it to really hit home and be so inspiring. He shared 10 principles we should always live by.
1. Establish a set of principles to guide your life. (teachings of Jesus Christ). 2. Don't make exceptions to your standards. (Be loyal to the teachings you have received from your parents and your education. 3. Be loyal (Be loyal to your parents/loved ones/savior). 4. Live so that the Lord can guide you to where He wants you to serve. 5. Serve Others. 6. Smile 7. Don't complain (life isn't always fair - that's a fact- but it brings many opportunities if you know where to find.) 8. Always have a church assignment. Be connected with the things of God and ways to serve him. 9. Go to the temple. (It will allow you to remember the most important things in life and give service to others) 10. Use the Savior as an example to pattern your life after.
The reason I loved what he said is because he made it sound so simple. He shared many other stories and teachings that inspired me to live a better life and always be LOYAL to the things I have been taught my whole life. I gained a stronger testimony and understanding that if I do the things which I know to be right I will always find true happiness. Of course life is not fair and sometimes hard but I know if we are loyal to our parents and the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ we will in the end be truly happy.
(This is a really heavy post and I know I am a nerd because I was taking notes on my phone during commencement but I just felt it to be so inspiring - if you are wondering what I might be talking about click this.)
I really had a great graduation. Now off to bigger and better things!
Nickel City and Provo's famous Malt Shop = a successful weekend.
Chip (Trevor's brother) and Alex (Chip's girlfriend) were in town this weekend. It was so fun to have them in town. They clearly won in getting the most tickets of the night.
This was my very first visit to the Malt shop. Where have I been the last five years?? Amazing shakes. I would recommend the raspberry shake.
This week I will be graduating from college. I can't believe I'm not going to be a student anymore. It really is hard to believe but it also feels so good. BYU has been very good to me and I have nothing but the best of memories of attending college here. I'm definitely excited to start experiencing the next chapter of my life.
I just wanted to thank everyone who came to my senior recital.
It was so fun to see so many close friends and family there. Thank you all for your support. It means so much!
I also need to thank my very kind and supportive husband. I was very stressed the weeks leading up to my recital and Trevor was always there to help around the house and calm my nerves. So grateful to have him around.
My two gorgeous Mothers. They are the most incredible women I know. Love them both very much. My beautiful cousins. It was so fun to have my whole family there. We are growing rapidly and don't live very close to one another so I felt so lucky to have them all there. Tanner was able to drive all the way from Las Vegas to come and take off work. It meant to much to me.
The beautiful treat table my amazing mother and aunt put together.
I also need to express much gratitude to my parents. So thankful for supportive parents who have sacrificed so much for me and the rest of my family. I feel so lucky and love them very much. My mom did so much to prepare for the recital and made tons of food. Love them.
