The Little Things

Sometimes life can be hectic.
Were running here, running there, late for this, trying to get this done.
It's really nice when we can slow down and just enjoy life.
I had one of those moments this weekend.
Dust and I had the house to ourselves and decided to have our own little BBQ.
Dust is quite the cook.
He got out some steaks, shrimps, and vegetables and started to go to work.
I helped where I could but mostly I just sat outside with him and read.
As I was sitting there, I couldn't help to think how wonderful my life is.

I am married to the greatest man in the world and my absolute best friend.
There is no one else in the world I would like to spend the rest of my life with.
I am so grateful for him.
I am grateful that he picked me to be his wife.
I am grateful for his patience, love and kindness.

I am just so grateful for the little things.
For this wonderful night that we got to spend together.
It felt like a little piece of heaven on earth.
I am grateful for this quite night I got to reflect upon my life.
I am so grateful to be a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
I am grateful to know my Savior Jesus Christ.
I am so grateful for his Atonement and our ability to return to our Heavenly Father.
I am grateful to know that we can live with our families forever.
I am just grateful to live on this earth and to be able to spend every day of it with Dust.

PA School

I cant even believe it.
I am in grad school.
When did I grow u?
I swear I just graduated from high school.

But here I am, a college grad, and a grad school student.
I started PA (Physician's Assistant) school two weeks ago.
It's in Las Vegas, and I am not going to lie its nice to be home.
It's nice seeing my family more and being able to spend time with them.

I am loving school.
It was defiantly a hard adjustment though.
I was not used to being in class 5 hours a day
and then studying 6 hours on top of that.
But I am loving what I am studying.
It's weird when your finally in school for what you want to do.
Having a "real" job was always so far away but now its knocking on my door.
I realized that I am not studying this material anymore to get a
good grade but to be a good clinician.
It makes me want to study harder though so I can be the best PA I can be.

The Move

I knew this day whould come at some point but I didnt realize that I would be this sad.
We made the move from Provo.
It was hard to leave the place you feel in love at.
We met, dated, courted, and spent our first year and half of marriage here.
It's where we went to college.
Its where we cheered our hearts out for the Cougars.
It's where some of my best memories are.
But there are few things that I am going to miss.
1. BYU.
As much as I have complained about parking, and the testing center,
I am really going to miss the Y.
I will miss the amazing professors, the great friends, and the constant fun of college life.
I'll miss walking up those dang stairs by the Smith Fieldhouse and being out of breath by the end of it.
I'll miss the vibe of the campus.
I'll definately miss the sports.
Nothing was better then this last year.
I will never forget the year of the Jimmer.
2. Our Honeymoon Cottage
I will really miss our little house.
It was so fun to be able to have a place of our own.
It was our little get away.
Our sancturay
Great memories.
I'll miss the broken shower, oven, outlets, and door knobs.
Ill miss the tree in front yard the dumped stuff on our cars.
I'll miss the neighborhood kids who played in our drive way.
And I''ll especially miss it because it was our first home.
3. Family
The thing that I will miss the most is definatly my family.
I have gotten to know the Calls so well these last few years and I am so sad that I wont be able to see them everyweek.
I already miss my brothers and sisters so much and I hate that I am not apart of their everyday life.
I'll miss Grace and seeing here art work. I'll miss Faith running around and entertaining us all. I'll miss hearing Tanners thoughts about books and life. I'll miss Brady's histerical comments. I'll miss just being able to talk to Carter. I'll miss seeing what great outfits Madi put together. I'll miss teasing Alex about his love life. I'll miss seeing Sue Ellen and Steve all the time, and for all the dinners and converstaions that we've had.
I realize that this may seem dramatic.
I mean I realize that I'll still see the Calls all the time,
but its just different when you dont live there.
Ill really miss our Sunday Dinners.
These are a sacred event. They are filled with the best food and the best company.
Sunday Dinners are as close as you can get to Heaven on Earth.
There is so much love in the room it is almost tangible.
I'll miss seeing all the cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.
These people are my greatest examples and the best people on earth.
I'll really miss Mexican night because no one does Mexican like the Calls.
Provo. Its been the best four years of my life. But I guess it's time to move on.
