my heart is full...

I guess one of the biggest, scariest things about moving away from my family and all the comforts of home, was the idea of having to start all over again. Trying something new has never been easy for me. Whether it was advancing on to the next grade in school, or a first date, or starting a new job, or figuring out how I was going to keep on living as mom struggled with her final breaths of life. I just don't do well with change. Never have. So, needless to say, I was a little nervous about making the move to Arizona. Nervous for a new neighborhood, nervous for a new ward. Well, pretty much nervous about everything.
All I can say is that I'm grateful to a loving Heavenly Father who sent me such wonderful and beautiful friends. Truly I feel so richly blessed to know, and associate with, so many outstanding individuals.

















This goes out to all of my Arizona friends. Thank you for the play dates, and the lunch groups, and the birthday celebrations. Thank you for the pool excursions, and the gym outings, and the morning walks, and the shopping trips. Thank you for giving me more reasons to be happy, and to smile, and to laugh, and to enjoy life. Thank you for loving me and supporting me through some of life's challenges. Thank you to all of you, for making this "change" -- an easy, enjoyable one. Truly my heart is full...

You are such a sweet heart! It is an honor to be your friend...even if I'm not an "AZ friend: :)

I don't know your friends, but they sound priceless and amazing.

(sorry to be so superficial, but mostly this post just reaffirmed that you are the best dressed human on earth...on top of being one of the most sincere and kind...I'm glad you're not plastered over all the magazine covers, because as of now, I know that all models and celebs have someone choosing their outfits...but you...you choose every stunning article on your own, complimenting and contrasting ravishing colors with stellar pieces, and then flawlessly ornamenting and accessorizing the ensmeble with delicacy.)
