give thanks

Off to the cabin for some much needed r&r.
Family time.
Relaxing time.
Sleeping time.
No homework time. {except studying for a test or two}

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Remember what is important in life.
You never know when it will be gone.
Give thanks.

Service Auction

Friday night was our ward
Thanksgiving Service Auction.

This is usually a very fun event.

Last year was not so much fun.
This year though,
it was fun again.

I am trying my best to enjoy my ward.
Some days it works.

Jake and Bob MC'd the event.
That was very entertaining!

We ate Thanksgiving dinner,
had the auction,
and just had a good time.

I passed my camera around the tables
so everyone could take and be in pictures.
The results were awesome!

This semester I am doing my internship.
We can do any type of design we want.

Since I have always loved floral design,
and have always wanted to one day own a small flower shop,
I decided doing my internship at a floral place would be fun.

I got all set up {thanks to Mark Jensen} to do it at

the Harmon's Floral Design Center

and I love it!

Sure, it is taking up every spare minute I have.
And causing me to be gone most days from 5:30 am - 8:00 pm.
(between school, work and internship)
But it's fun.
The ladies are a riot.
And it's something I love.

I am not sure what the future holds for me once school ends.
But I hope I can do something I love.

it's the most wonderful time of the year

I am getting really excited for Christmas.
I maybe listened to Christmas music all weekend.
I wanted to decorate, but I held off.

I just love this time of year.
So much fun.
So many great memories.

The sites.
The smells.
The sounds.

I just love it all!

Bijou Market

I missed this in the Spring.
I was sad.

I will for sure be going to the Winter show.
And I am pretty excited!

It was a beautiful day.

I just can't get enough of this girl.
Can you blame me?!

Madeleine L'Amour

I almost hate to share this,

but I will.
Because I love Jeni and Elaine.
And the only reason I hate to share it is totally selfish.
I don't want people to get the little treasures before I do!

I know,

So here it is.

My darling friend Jeni and her darling mother Elaine opened a store.

Madeleine L'Amour
is a little French inspired,
shabby chic,
totally girly place to be.
And I love it.

Grand opening was last Monday
and I have already been...
a few times.
I have a problem!

But I love it!
And you should all go check it out.
Jeni and Elaine are so much fun!
I can go there and spend hours
just looking around and chatting with them.
And of course,
finding something beautiful that I must have.

Stop in.
You won't be sorry.

Madeleine L'Amour is located at
146 Parrish Square
in Centerville
open 11-6

It is just lovely!
