Finally, a post!
Hello everyone! I know it's been forever since I have written anything, sorry, you know how life gets. And the last blog I wrote was so depressing, so sorry for leaving on that note ha ha! So here I am, sitting in the Library on campus, and I have a few minutes before my next class, so I wanted to just write a little post. Wow, if I can concentrate...this girl sitting next to me is munching on some celery, and I don't think I have ever heard anyone eat celery so loud! I wonder when she will run out of stocks...she just keeps pulling them out of her back pack! Ha ha, sidetracked, sorry about that one. Anyways, Saturday was mine and Trevor's one year anniversary. I can't believe how fast time has gone by! It seems like yesterday we were engaged and making the wedding plans, and now it has already been a year that we have been married. And what a fun, happy year it has been. I seriously have the best husband on earth, he is the perfect guy for me. I consider myself very lucky to have ended up with such a catch. I love you Trev! Lately I have been thinking a lot about time and our lives, how quick it all goes. I can remember looking at the upper classmen in high school graduating and thinking to myself, that will never be me, it will never come. But it did. I can remember watching all my friends start to get married and me thinking, is it really that time? Are we really that old to actually be getting married? Obviously, we were. I can remember taking my engagement pictures with Trevor thinking oh my gosh, this is the guy I am going to be with forever! I am getting married! Now all my friends are having babies, my sister has a baby, my sister in laws have babies (no this is not a hint, we are not expecting) and I am thinking, wow, that is going to be us someday. It is just unreal how fast life goes, and I must admit, I have been taking it all for granted. I just get up, go to school, go to work, do homework, make sure the house is clean and dinner is made, just go through the daily grind to get through the day. And lately, it's been taking it's toll. I don't want to live like that, life is too awesome to live like that. I want to make each day count, really live life and enjoy it. Because before you know it, time has past you by and you look around wondering where you have been. So I am challenging myself, and you, if you have been doing the same thing I have, to stop and slow down. I know the prophet has told us this many times, and for good reason. Our lives are so busy, just slow down and enjoy the ride. Make time for the things that really count. Family, friends, faith, that is what really makes us who we are and brings us true happiness during our lives. So that is my soap box post, I will come down now, celery girl is really getting on my last nerve anyway. Yes, she is still munching on celery, loud as ever! But anyway, I wish you all happiness and joy in your life, and slow it down, enjoy every minute you have. I am going to start trying harder to do that, I know it's really important. I got class, have a great day!
