{The month of May and M.I.A...

I have been missing in action... My entire spring and early summer has been completely devoted to girls camp! Ahhh!! It's going to be so much fun, but I'm sure my family is ready to call it quits. I've been more than frustrated a few times myself. Our theme this year is "O Be Wise" from Jacob 6. Once girls camp is over, I'll have to post all the details because no one should have to start from scratch!!! I'm working with the best women in the world and count my lucky stars every day for them!

This weekend we were able to take a breather with the Kimball's and Utah Hawker's in Steamboat Springs. It was so nice and relaxing and very much needed! We hiked and swam and just enjoyed being away from home!

Now, it's back to reality... ONE MORE WEEK and then I can breathe again!

{Happy Mother's Day...

Mother's Day is a day that is full of emotion for me. I think of all the women that have touched my life over the years and made a difference in my life. I think of Young Women leaders, aunts, grandmothers, my Mother-in-law, my sisters-in-law, good girlfriends and my dear sweet birth mother's. My heart breaks for them as I watch my sweet boys growing so big. I am ever grateful to them for bringing them to this earth and placing them in our home. I of course think of my own mother. I love my her! I love her for raising us in the gospel. I admire her testimony, her strength and her ability to connect with people from all walks of life. I love her for always making things fun at our house! From "dance party / chore Saturday" to our late night talks after a date or night out with friends. A holiday never went by in college without a sticker laden box or package. Now her role has changed to helping me figure out how to be that fun mom. I appreciate all the advice and creative ideas that are ever flowing in her mind! (I don't know how she sleeps at night! She's always dreaming up the next big event). She is one of my dearest friends and greatest blessings. Love you mom! -If I were in Loveland today I would probably tickle your feet for a set of Lee Press On Nails!

Happy Mother's Day!
