{mind dump}

Lots of things on my mind lately...here are a few:

I went running last night for the first time, in a long time. In 2006 Brade and I ran the St. George Marathon. Last night, 2 miles seemed really far. But I'll get there:)

Yesterday was the last time I'll ever have to wait until 9pm to see Brade. He finished up his last class, except for an online one, so I'll get to spend more time with him. That brings many smiles to my heart and face! August Graduation, here we come! It's been a long educational road- he's been in school since I've know him!

I need a vacation. So does Brade. We need to do something fun together. Hopefully our trip to Europe plays out as planned. I've been dreaming of going since the Summer of 2005, when the Platt family went out there for 3 weeks and I've heard endless awesome stories of it ever since. I can't wait to experience it for myself and appreciate new things. And of course to take the most amazing pictures ever!

I'm going to be an aunt in less than 2 months. Jenna & Mandi are due within about days of eachother, so we'll be getting 2 babies at the same time! We can't wait. Between the Platt's and Ward's, there are going to be 7 new aunts, 2 new mommies, and 4 new grandparents- Keep up the good work Jenna & Mandi; hopefully Summer won't be too warm:)

I am in serious need of some eyebrow wax. It's starting to look like animals peering through my eyelashes. Wow.

I left my wedding ring in St. George last weekend. (in a safe place-while doing dishes) and I have felt naked without it on my finger. I'm excited to get it back.

My parents have a pool now. It has been so much fun to hear about their poolside summer days. After some photo sessions last weekend, I went for a night swim with my Dad. And it was so fun. I have great parents and I am so grateful for them and their qualities, advice, friendship, and examples.

Marriage is great. Learning to save money and make wise decisions is fun.

Life is good.
