Thinking

I'm up at 2 am and the weather is so cool outside and I'm just thinking about things...realizing that a lot of the things I freak out about don't matter and that what really matters are family and friends and GOD and making sure that my relationships with all of them are strong.  Especially my relationship with my Savior.

I'm also thinking about how Ashley and I complained a lot today and acted so bored and when we finally went to the pool we still acted unhappy, but as I was laying there in the sun, I was thinking, "Tomorrow, or even in a few hours, it won't matter that we didn't get to the pool as early as we wanted to today, or that the pool isn't playing the kind of music I want to listen to. What will matter is that we had fun together on a summer day" (once we finally stopped complaining and got out of the house). 

In everything we do, we are creating memories.  That's why I try so hard to make everything perfect, but that's the thing…

Over the Weekend

I always love the weekends, although they're super busy.  I just uploaded all of my pictures from this past weekend, and despite the fact that I should be catching up on writing about stuff that happened this past semester, I'll post about my weekend!!
Friday night I went to a wedding. My friend Marie got married at the most beautiful venue in Bermuda Run.  It was an amazing outdoor wedding with a reception in a gigantic barn.  I was so happy to be a part of the special night.  Me and Zach had so much fun.

Of course Zach had to make things out of the wedding favors...

Saturday was Brooke and Lexie's tea party! Brooke and Lexie are sisters and are 12 years apart, but their birthdays are June 28 and 29, so they had a tea party together to celebrate.  It was so much fun! The food and tea were great, and we love any excuse to put on a flowery dress and a big sun hat :)

On Sunday we…
