Our 2nd Anniversary and Conference Weekend!

On Monday September 30th Weston and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary! I just don't know where the time went, but I do know that I love Weston more and more everyday. I am so grateful for every minute we have to be together. In the beginning of August, Weston and I were down in Lake Powell with my family and some amazing family friends that I've known for as long as I can remember. All 12 of us were in a terrible accident when our ski boat hit a submerged island. We so quickly lost my sweetest friend's husband. It was something none of us were prepared for and completely turned our worlds upside down, especially my friends. Please keep her in your prayers. In that moment, my life was forever changed....for the good. My testimony was strengthened more than I can put into words because of the life David led and because of the enormous love and tender mercies the Lord provided for us. I realized how precious life is and how blessed we are to have another day to serve the Lord, become better, and show our love. I do not believe is coincidences. Everything that happens is part of Heavenly Father's plan! I am so unbelievably grateful that we chose to be sealed in the temple. It means more to me now than it ever has before.

This last weekend was General Conference. It is one of my favorite times of the year. Especially this year. For almost every Conference we spend the weekend at my cabin up in Eden. There's just something wonderful about fall time up there. I love being cozy and warm, seeing the lake and fall leaves, and spending time with my friends and family. Nothing beats it! I am so grateful to live so close to living prophets and apostles. Isn't it incredible? I loved hearing their inspiring words and leaving with a newfound sense of enthusiasm and motivation to be a better person.
