love love love

Since this blog is mostly for me. ill be talking to myself a little. Remember that song by Avalanche city? "love love love" also "see you soon" by coldplay ? yea well they're calling my name today. and so are all my pics in the "me and ky" folder. I cannot stop looking at them and thinking..."wow 24 days...and this man that has made me happier than anyone i've ever know is leaving. for two years!" The thought is really overwhelming me a bit. but Im also sooo excited! we both need to grow and experience life and i am sooo excited to see what will happen in two years. I can't wait to watch him grow through letters of his experiences. I can't wait till August 2014 when we reunite and things will be even better than they are now. That gives me hope. the three week mark is hard. Not wanting it to come while at the same time just thinking, can we rip the band aid off and get this next two years rolling? I am just so grateful to have had the past two years together. They have FLOWN by which makes me hope the next two fly by also. Kyler has taught me so much, bu mostly just to be happy no matter what. If ky has something happen that i think aw that would make me sad why aren't you sad? he replies "I love to be happy, I choose to be happy because it's not worth it to be sad." wow...could he get any wiser? And almost every "happiest moments" in my life have been with him. Every time i think about getting sad because he's leaving, i think of the people in Ukraine, and think about how MY ky will bring the gospel to their lives and it is VERY heart warming. That is what gets me through. I am so blessed to have this love. and....let the journey begin

So I have been trying my hand at photography...And im a little obsessed. these are just a FEW of some pics i have taken and edited . seriously it was sooo hard to choose which ones to put on here! haha I did connors bday and a random fun one with my bestie claire. Its so fun and i feel like it takes my mind off of everything else. i loooove it


School is out and i couldnt be happier to have ky be free! i have been off track meanwhile he has been working so hard. He has been so busy with English, Chemistry, Anat and phys, Science foundations and mission prep that almost everytime we hang out has to be devoted to school work. I am so glad he is a hard worker. It is something I admire sooo much!  And of course he ends the semester with straight A's!! I dont mean A and A-.... alllll A's! He deserves it.! I love his love and passion for learning and working hard. He is a great example to me.  and now with 39 days left till he leaves, with now more homework and class... He is all mine! hehe To celebrate we made oreo truffles with our favorite friends Blake and Chelsea..who we met by fate. And went out to the sand dunes for a fire. It was sooo fun

Dear Elder

 So Ky's mom just got back from utah and she stopped at Flags and Stuff and brought home sooo many fun things! ( more to come in another post) AND mike decided to dress up and knock on the door and give us the first discussion! it was soooo funny and unexpected and awesome! I am so glad to have these lovely people in my life! and i love my bracelet, ring and flag.! REPRESENT UKRAINE!

Come fly away with me

WOW! this was like the best day ever. Ky and i drove to Island park and Dirtbiked alll day. Then we went to the playmill and saw my favorite play! "The Drowsy Chaperone" It was so fun to get away and enjoy a whole day together.

Once a year

Once a year comes a very special day...thats right...birthdays! I cant believe this is Ky's last bday here! Next year I will be sending all his birthday presents in a cardboard box! So bitter sweet. The bday this year started with me attacking his car at 1 in the morning. He got soooo many weird looks driving the green machine today. Then we went on a GORGEOUS dirtbike ride up by kelly canyon. where we stopped by the river and opened his present. I embroidered a pillow case for his mission, got him an awesome dirtbike stand, (to replace his plastic bucket nailed onto a wood panel that he made) ..(thanks cameron for the help picking it out) and i put together a small photo album of all our pictures that he can take with him. It was a great day and im so proud and happy to have this young man in my life:)
