As much as I would like to say otherwise, this November was quite uneventful. The never ending sea of homework, projects, late nights at the school, and life commitments were limitedly interrupted by a day of fun. Despite all the boring obligations this month a few hilights included a night out on the town with foreign friends, the Catching Fire midnight premiere (one of the funnest nights of this month but I did pay for it early the next morning), young women's in excellence, the mayor's breakfast, a couple rare rainy days, and of course thanksgiving (with an additional black friday adventure). This month (especially the past few days) has given me an opportunity to reflect and be thankful for the many blessings I have. I have so much to look forward to in the next 31 days. Enjoy!
I love the holiday season for a lot of reasons. Many of them being the glittered ribbons and 30% off sales everywhere but also the joy everyone seems to feel. The holidays allow us to shut off just for a day or two the business of life and reflect. I have an incomprehensible amount in my life to be thankful for. I am grateful of course for my family, I couldn't imagine my life without the loving arms of my mom and dad and for a darling sister and brother. I'm thankful for the gospel and every blessing that comes with it. For the most gorgeous friends to share so many of my good times, bad times, and favorite memories with. Also for many other teachers, leaders, etc. that I am blessed to be acquainted with who shape me into the person I am & inspire me every day. I'm grateful for the little things like pinterest and my warm bed. In summary, I am blessed.
Lately I have been noticing more and more people sharing all of their favorite songs through their blog. So because of my stunning lack of posts these past few days and my desperation for something to share I decided to hop on the bandwagon and share a few of the gems I have been listening to lately. Hopefully this will maybe become a regular thing. Enjoy!
