hey Mr.

somedays (today for instance) I really
can't believe how blessed I am.
somedays (seems like quite a few lately) I get overwhelmed/frustrated/stressed/worried
...you get the point.
and EVERYTIME I get "like that" without fail my Mr. is there to make it all better.
I know it sounds cheesey, but it is 150% true.
He is so good, maybe too good, at picking up on my little huffs and puffs as I scurry around doing whatever it is I am doing, and is right there wrapping me in a hug (even if I try to wiggle away) tucks my hair behind my ears- just like I like, and won't let go until I have told him what (and all...) that is on my mind...usually resulting in tears.
 he. is. amazing.
He never gets mad. He never raises his voice. He is so patient and kind. And even though he has a BaZillion things going on, he never makes me feel less than numero uno.
Thinking about it all just turns me into a complete puddle.
I love him so much.


I have been taught since I was a little girl that I am a child of God. I know that I have a Father in Heaven who has a plan for my life, and always wants what's best for me. I know that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, and the Savior of all mankind- they love us more than we can understand and have given us the atonement, the miracle of forgivness, to keep trying everyday to become more like them. These simple, but life changing truths, bring so muchjoy to me each and every moment of my life.


Team Brynn

When I read this quote I thought of my 11 year old cousin Brynn. She was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma on July 2, 2010. And since that day- now over one year ago- has been doing radiation and chemotherapy.

I could literally go on and on and on about how much she has endured and how brave she is but I know I could never come up with the words to adequately descibe her.

So I will just say- she is truly amazing. 

Brynn inspires me (and a WHOLE bunch of other people) everyday to look on the bright side- a cliche' thing to say- but life changing if really put it into practice. She has been though so much. Much, much more than most people go through in a life time, and yet manages to have an unwavering smile along with unwavering faith in Heavenly Father.

 I am so glad we've been able to be here this summer to spend more time with her. Her sweet face and perfectly round, bald head instantly make it a great day! :) Love you Brynny!
