it is in the air...

I can feel it!

Spring is almost here!
I have never been so ready!

I need a good change!
I love this time of year.

I do love winter, it is probably my favorite season but I am so ready for the sunshine!

I love the springtime because it is so fresh and new. It helps me to start having a new outlook on life and know that things are going to be alright. No matter what. I have so much more energy in the spring and want to do so many things. I am getting excited just thinking about it!

I love waking up in the morning and just needing a light jacket.
I love driving to school at 7:30 in the morning with the sun out and shining.
I love being able to run outside. Anytime.
I love the smells.
I love the flowers.
I love it all!

Lots of fun things to look forward to in the next few months that will hopefully help me get through if the weather does turn bad again...

Baby shower for my dear friend Danelle
Seeing old friends
Running the Moab 1/2 marathon
Finishing the semester of school
Seeing Wicked (for the third time!)
The Race for the Cure
My best friend Ryann getting married
Maybe a trip or two

and much more...

Here is to a happy spring and to a bright new day!

beautiful girls.
beautiful family.
beautiful service.
my prayers are with the Edwards family.

Micah Mattie and Shilo Anne Edwards

Micah Mattie Edwards and Shilo Anne Edwards Inseparable in Life and Death Micah Mattie Edwards born May 12, 1987 and her sister Shilo Anne Edwards born September 5, 1989 fell into the arms of their Father in Heaven in a fatal auto accident in Sanpete County on Friday, February 13, 2009. They were two angels called home. They were exceptionally beautiful on the inside and out and will be deeply missed. Micah and Shilo were more than sisters, they were best friends. They both attended Snow College so they could be together. They had their own beds as little girls but always loved to snuggle up together in one bed. They took care of each other and their mother, whom they also considered a best friend. They loved their brothers and sisters and shared a close family bond. Micah, a compassionate, tender-hearted and loving soul, was studying to become a nurse. She was very thoughtful and loved deeply. She had a funny and witty personality and was blessed with artistic talent. Shilo graduated from Fran Brown School of Cosmetology and did everybody's hair. At Snow College, she was studying to get her Associates of the Arts. She was ambitious and motivated. She played the piano well and enjoyed quilting and making jewelry. Shilo was soon to be engaged to her love Andrew Winager. The sisters are survived by their loving parents Dale and Lee Anne Porter Edwards of West Bountiful; brothers Tyler (Katie), Kolby; little sister Shelby and their special niece Kalia. Funeral Services will be held 11 am Wed. February 18, 2009 at the West Bountiful Stake Center 1930 N. 600 W. Friends may call Tuesday 5-8 pm at the stake center and Wednesday 9:45-10:45am prior to the services.

I have been missing her a lot lately.
Maybe it is missing her asking me how school is going.
Or how my day was.
Or if there are any cute boys in my classes.
Or wishing me good luck on my presentation.
Or asking how my presentation went today.
Maybe I just miss her.

I am the rule

I love this movie. Maybe it is because I am just like Gigi...oh well. She eventually gets the guy!

Happy Valentine's Day!

hit the pavement

I really love running.
Had the best run of the year {so far} yesterday.

I love the clean air.
I hope it last.
A long time.

I also love this.
I knew I would.
(thanks Benj!)

Can't wait to hit the pavement with this.
