couldn't help myself

We have a rule around here, no decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving.

But while the Mr. was taking a nap yesterday, we just couldn't help oursleves.

Today I was inspired by this wonderful sister and friend of mine. I am not a great writer, as she is, in fact, I am a terrible writer. Which is why I usually let my words speak through the thousands of pictures I post. However, her words got me thinking today, so here goes....

This past little while I have thought so much about ME. I have been so absorbed in what makes me happy. I used to pride myself in always thinking about everyone else, but I can see that I have gotten off course. This is a sad thing. I want to be more like Miah's grandma who just passed away. What a life she lived. With 14 kids, she didn't have time to be selfish. She was up every morning before the rest of the house, everything organized, everything ready. She was an amazing woman who lived a life of quiet service. At her funeral, I found myself thinking; Do I serve enough? Do I care more about the comfort of other's than myself? Do I sleep on the floor when there aren't enough beds (sorry friends)? It is time for change! I want to rid myself of all selfish desires so I can become the person I want to be.

You must be the change you wish to see in the world. -- Mahatma Gandhi

Girls Trip '09

I really have been so blessed with amazing friends, and these girls are no exception. A few of our friends from High School made our way down to St. George for some good ol' girl time! We all love it, We all need it! This trip was entirely too short, but it sure was fun!
We missed all of you who couldn't join us this year.

Can't wait for girls trip, 2010
