Fresh Veggies!

When we moved into our new ward, we heard about the ward garden. So we planted some seeds. I didn't think we would get much. Since we started we've visited the garden often and watched "our little babies" grow! So far, we've gotten parsley, carrots, cucumbers, watermelon, and beans!

{ehhh...what up dock?}

{our babies!!}

{baby watermelon!}

I'm done... for reals this time.

After a long summer semester, I finally finished my senior thesis and took my final test for business law. It feels like I should be going back next semester, but I'm not! It didn't seem real at first but it's starting to sink in as I think about what I need to be doing and it doesn't have to do with school!

On Friday, I remember thinking, "Wow, I can't believe that I did it... I made it through all of the papers, presentations, group projects, and exams. How did I do it?!" I really couldn't believe that I actually made it through.

So many times I forget who I am and what I am capable of. I let myself get discouraged and feel like I can't do anymore. I have a good husband who reminds me that I can do it, but its time that I realize that myself. Not only did my parents raise me to think more of myself, but I know that Heavenly Father wants me to be more confident, too.

Now I get to see my little sister start her senior year and decide where she wants to go to college. My decision to go to snow wasn't difficult. I had no other options, but she does. I know that she will make the right decision and have just as much fun as I did. One thing that I hope is that she has more confidence in herself than I did at that time. She needs to trust that she will make the right decision, make it, and then move forward.
Anyway, I didn't mean for this post to be all mushy like, but it will be a good reminder to look at this in the future and know that I am capable and that I will always have support from the people that I love.
