The Good Things

Sometimes we have weekends where a lot of things just don't go right, and this past weekend was definitely in that category. There's a lot of things about this weekend that I really would like to forget about, and then there are a lot of things I want to remember until I am old and feeble. Instead of groaning and focusing on all the things that weren't perfect about this weekend, Here's a pretty long list of all that went right. Sometimes it takes thinking about the positives in order to realize how blessed our lives actually are.

Things I want to remember about this weekend

  • laughing my head off at the sight of my roommate wearing a full-blown nun costume during her opera performance. 
  • having our sink plugged up on both sides because my roommate put grease down the drain
  • talking about future adventures and plans with Cierra and Syd
  • watching old scary movies late at night with the youngins 
  • pancakes and country music on Saturday mornings
  • playing the guitar with my dad and brother, dad singing high harmonies like Kermit the frog
  • throwing a bull-pen with my dad after not pitching for over 9 months
  • watching the sunset from my favorite spot
  • somehow ending up watching 2 hours of river dancing on YouTube with Dylan
  • reading outside in the breeze with my momma
  • dancing on the porch to make my dad laugh after a hard day
  • listening to sweet little June Christensen, aka my soul sister, tell about her love life in Sacrament meeting
  • slow Sunday mornings
  •  best friends who tell you everything will be okay from 500 miles away
  • roommates who lend a listening ear when you just need to vent

I hope you can find goodness in everyday as well. 
Life is hard, but life is good.

Spring Break


One of the greatest creations on this earth is a little week full of relief called Spring Break. It comes right when you think the earth might just fall to pieces and when you are on your last straw. This year was no different. Spring Break was so refreshing and I feel like my soul healed a little bit. I watched about 25 hours of baseball games, spent 3 days poolside, ate delicious home cooked meals, played badminton at midnight with my mom, slept in, stayed up late, watched the sunset from my favorite spot, rode my beach cruiser non-stop, and enjoyed a nice sunday picnic in an orchard full of peach blossoms. If that doesn't sound like heaven to you, then something is wrong because really nothing could have been better. It was a week full of relaxation, sunshine, and laughter and it was definitely well spent. Now all I have to do is endure through these next six weeks of school and then I'm free to enjoy the summer months.
