let's reminisce shall we? life lately has been a bit of everything: smiles, laughs, tears, stress, happiness, and pure fun. A little over two weeks ago I left those teenage years behind and finally turned twenty. It's odd because for the past couple of years I've been looking forward to turning twenty, don't ask me why because I have no idea? Maybe I thought I'd be taken more seriously not being a teenager and all. But in reality on my plane ride home from Seattle I was thinking to myself and it hit me. I will never be a kid again- sure maybe a kid at heart, but still always an adult. It was insane to me. I know many of us have had this realization and I'm sure I've had it before but not like this one. Through all of this I realized that I want to keep that carefree happylike characteristics that kids/teenagers have. It's not my personality at all to turn into this stress crazy woman so I'm hoping to always still be somewhat of a kid at heart.
Right after my birthday I flew up to Seattle, WA for Niff's farewell weekend. It was the kind of weekend I needed. There wasn't a ton of plans, I fell in love with Washington and I got to spend some quality time with some of my best friends. I was content and it was amazing. Niff actually went into the MTC (Missionary Training Center) in Provo, UT to begin her mission which will take her to serve the people of Bangkok, Thailand. I'm so proud of her. It's going to be weird not having her with me 24/7 in Rexburg but she's doing better things :).
life is good. oh so good.
