This weekend is one I look forward to all year. I get to watch General Conference and hear the words of our inspired church leaders. I love them so much! It never fails to be exactly, exactly, what I need to hear. Funny how that works, eh?
This weekend, I enjoyed a lovely little getaway with the family.
In a phrase? Much-needed.
They are the most hilarious, compassionate, and best people I know.
Our weekend included family truth or dare (during which I was the ONLY one to choose dare… and had to lick handfuls of pepper as punishment), lots of good books (I think we’re single-handedly keeping Barnes and Noble in business lately, and I’m not mad about it), wandering through the red rock, late-night projects, and some awesome reconnecting with my sweet family.
Sometimes it’s so good to touch base.
To laugh over jokes you made across the room with only your eyes.
To cry in a place where no one thinks less of you.
To make big decisions and be backed by an entire group of people.
To eat yummy food and to adventure.
To just be.
And yes. It’s finally eagle-shirt weather. It’s rearing it’s tacky head again. Animal shirts will never cease to amuse me. Forever live Wildlife Wednesday, the most important lesson I learned back in high school, and the best wardrobe tradition ever to be.
Our little house in Southern Utah is my favorite place to visit. And I will miss it when I move to Minnesota. But most of all, I think I’ll miss these beautiful people.
