Life has not slowed down since the grand opening of the mission!! I am starting to wonder if there is enough time to get everything done ( I can only imagine how my poor parents feel). One thing that has helped a million times over has been the opportunity to go to the temple. I had the opportunity to go through for the first time about three weeks ago and it was the most amazing experience of my life!!! It is so great to take a break from all the shopping, working, and craziness to spend time in the lords house. I love the temple and I am so grateful we have so many temples so close.
I am getting more and more excited to serve a mission. After hours and weeks of shopping we are pretty much done clothes shopping. We have pretty much hit up every store within the state of Utah ( at least that is what it feels like) I NEVER thought I would say this, but I am sick of shopping!!!! I love spending the time with my mother and surprisingly we have agreed on ALMOST all of my outfits. However I am glad the shopping part is almost over. I am getting anxious to leave. I cannot wait to serve in the MTC. I cannot wait to wake up everyday at 6:30 instead of 4:00. I cannot wait to meet my companions. I am so excited for the next eighteen months!!
I am going to miss my family so so so much. but hey eighteen months is not that long and we will be reunited before you know it!!!!
