Since being given the opportunity to work with the young women in my ward I realized that I have never looked forward this much to church since I was in young women’s myself. I truly love it; enjoy it so much. I look forward to the lessons, the activities, even my opportunity to teach. It’s so much fun and I just want to be there for all the girls and give them great memories to look back on.

I’ve been trying to perfect my photography skills recently and I must say I never quite realized how much joy I could truly get out of it. It’s definitely a lot more work than I originally thought and there’s still so much to learn but when I get that one perfect shot I just think, wow this is incredible. To accomplish something after studying it for so long and actually be able to see the hard work and effort staring right back at me on that little screen it’s just amazing.

It’s that time of year again for family photos so AJ and I went into the woods to try our hand at it again. I know they’re not perfect now but I hope in 5 years I’ll be able to go back and look at them all and see how I’ve progressed in my photography; and of course remember the good times we had in between.
AJ: “How do I look?”
Me: “Good, but you gotta fix your hair.”
