Bibliophile, Party of One



If you know anything about me, it's probably the fact that I LOVE books. I impulse buy them all the time and typically have at least one, if not three, in my purse at any given moment. And, confession, I have two boxes of books still in my car.

A few weeks ago someone asked me why I love books so much. I fumbled something out about it being a way to unwind at the end of the day, but there's really so much more to it.

Morning Vibes

I woke up at 4:15 today. It was one of those mornings where I tossed and turned and finally gave up on ever getting back to sleep. So I flicked on the light and tucked in for scripture study and am now peeling myself out of bed to work out at the cheerful hour of 5 a.m. I always begrudge these mornings but I think secretly I might love them. These are always the days where I get a million things done. So here's to productivity on a Wednesday. ✌🏻

2017: The Resolution List


I love the New Year. It's one of my favorite holidays. I love the tradition of taking inventory of where we're at and making a plan for where we want to go. I used to be irritated when I'd show up to BYU's gym at the beginning of the winter semester and there wouldn't be an empty machine anywhere. But I had it all wrong. It was a tangible sign of all of these people trying to be better. I wish I had had the vision then to let that sight make me smile instead of roll of my eyes. But, I was a work in progress--and I still am.
