Sometimes I like to disappear and reappear on this little blog.  It's not the first time...and I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't the last.

Washington D.C. temple in December my absence, life has happened.  Nothing too exciting, but life is good.
Here's some of my goings-on:
  • Lots and lots of school
    • ALL business classes this semester
    • Some are super thankfully I have friends to keep me sane
    • Some professors are super rad
  • I got a promotion at work....not one hundred percent sure what it entails yet, but it should be good!
  • I flew to Maryland in December to visit my seester -- super fun and super pretty :)
  • MLK weekend = my roommate's cabin at Bear Lake
  • The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford & Sons, and Imagine Dragons have been on constant repeat
  • Countless games of Murder in the Dark have been played with Old Farm friends
  • I've become addicted to The Walking Dead
  • I've also developed an addiction to Wheat Thins
  • With all the snow and ice we've had I'm proud to say I've only fallen twice {and only bruised once} 

Sometimes it's nice to have life be gives you a lot more time to enjoy it :)

In my vocabulary, snow is usually a word letter word { it is a four letter word}.

Today my roommates and I were unable to drive to a Linger Longer {awesome food + socializing after church} because our roommate with 4-wheel drive went home for the weekend and the roommate with the best tires was unable to make it out of the parking lot.  So we hitched a ride to the church...but this also meant we were left car-less up there.  Instead of mooching a ride back {which I'm sure someone would have gladly given us}, we decided to make the journey home on foot.

And I'm so glad we did.

Beauty surrounds us every day.

Sometimes we don't realize it.  Or choose to complain instead.

  • "It's too cold"
  • "I hate shoveling"
  • "People drive too slow"
  • "Can it just be summer already?"
  • "I am so tired of the snow!!!"
  • And a myriad of other complaints floating around

Normally, I'm quite guilty of this and would have a hatred of snow building inside me too.  This week I'm deciding to

Appreciate More, Complain Less

I do wish sidewalks and roads could shovel and plow themselves though...

I sure do love our pretty little winter wonderland we've been given :)
