A Few of My Favorite Things

October 8, 2016

This time of year is one of my favorite times of year.  Who doesn’t love fall?! The beautiful colors, the cool breeze, wearing warm and cozy sweaters and scarves…the list could go on and on and on.
During the stressful and busy times of life, I like taking the time to think and reflect on a few of my favorite things.

The Alpine Loop in Utah is absolutely beautiful this time of year.  Scott and I took the time during General Conference this last week to drive my sisters up through the Alpine Loop.  I don’t think words can express the beauty up that canyon, so here’s the pictures I got on the drive.




Speaking of General Conference Weekend, I love knowing that there is a living prophet today.  He speaks to us and gives us the guidance and direction we need today.  Thomas S. Monson spoke as well as apostles and other leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  The words spoken we so powerful and gave me such a boost in my spirits.
One of my favorite speakers talked about Joy and how powerful it is.  Joy is incredible and can heal and bless your life and others as well.  I can’t imagine life without joy.  There are so many things like fall, family, friends, school, baking, and more that bring joy into my life each and every day.


Another thing that I love, is loving so close to a place very close to my heart.  Temple Square.  I spent 18 months as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the incredible Temple Square.  Anytime I have a chance to walk around those grounds, I reflect back on those days and remember the sweet people I met and all the incredible experiences I had.

One last thing I love doing, all year long, is working out! I always love trying new things, especially classes.  If you haven’t heard of the new class HIGH, you’re missing out! It is such a fun class and you get the best workout too! I have made some great friends and look up to so man of the teachers for the love and dedication to healthy lives.  I was lucky enough to snap the quick (sweaty) picture with two of my favorite teachers, Metta and Rochelle.  They have helped me in so many more ways than I ever thought a gym class teacher would.  They are more than just a teacher…they’re the one’s who give me strength, support, bring happiness into my life, make me feel good, and more.  If you know these two ladies consider yourself lucky, and if you don’t you need to meet them!
Find what makes you happy.  What are your favorite things? Figure out what they are and make sure you always have something in your life that makes you happy and brings joy into your life each and every day.
