Tulip Festival oh my!!!

Today Ricki took me to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point since it's the first nice day that we have had in a while!! I can't even explain how beautiful the gardens look! The paths weave through so much land- it took Ricki and I almost 2 hours to walk through! it made me want to start a garden- or just have one to look at all day long! I took lots of pictures on instagram (the best photo app ever- get it!)

My absolute favorite- how beautiful is this???

I can't wait to have my own garden, even though I will probably not be able to make them look half as good.

Today also marked a special day for Ricki and I.... It's our five month!! And exactly 3 months and 2 days until we get married. I can't wait! I can't believe it's only been this long since we started dating. I feel like he has been apart of my life forever! And I can't wait to spend forever with him.

Okay sorry for the mushy stuff.. Except Ricki is really the only one who reads this and he loves it! So I love you chocolate cream pie! You're my best friend and the best thing that has ever happened to me!

Right now we are watching the REAL Salt Lake vs. Monterey CONCACAF Championship game. It's amazing to me that I spent the majority of my life playing soccer-- yet I HATE watching it. Okay, hate might be a bit strong- but I do think that it is really boring. The fact that we are watching this would explain this really long blog post! Sorry guys

Until next time!

Lately.. Well I guess not really-- the last four months summed up in a post!

Hey ya'all! Well to the two people who read my blog. IM BACK!!!!! after a long four month hiatus I have time to blog again! I have missed it big time. Here's an update.
1. I took creative writing this semester, and found out that I love to write poetry... And am actually pretty good at it!
2. Brian Doyle is my new favorite writer. Look him up. Seriously. He is AMAZING. He changed my perspective on-- well just about everything!
3. My brother is marrying the love of his life Ciera Graff- on June 9th! I can't wait for her to be my sister.. She is so amazing and absolutely perfect for my brother
4. I met the love of my life! He proposed March 12. I can't wait to get sealed to him on July 29th! He is perfect for me in every way. I am so unbelievably lucky! Isn't he handsome?

He has the most incredible family. I can't wait to have two more sisters and a younger brother!

5. I got diagnosed with Mono this semester- again. Ricki was so sweet to take care of me.. Even though all I did was sleep and cry and sleep some more.

6. I have met the most incredible people while planning mine and Ricki's wedding. I can't believe the wonderful women that are in the wedding industry in Utah. We are so unbelievable lucky! The whole experience is incredible.

7. I can't wait to spend the summer spending time with my fiancé, reading books I actually want to read, and spending time at the lake! As well as attending the many weddings of my friends (congratulations you guys!!! Everyone of you!!)

Ps- ignore the blog format I will work on it I promise!
