time is a funny thing.

A coworker and I were talking last week about how 2007 feels like 3 years ago...not 7.  It blows my mind to think that it's been (almost) four years since I graduated from high school, because I could swear that was yesterday.

There's a line in Gretchen Rubin's book, The Happiness Project, that resonates particularly well with me:  "The days are long, but the years are short."  Most days, as my head hits my pillow at the end of the day, I think, "Wow, today was long and I'm exhausted."  Before I know it, the week has flown by--it's crazy!  

However, last week seemed to go by so slowly as I was anticipating this past weekend!  Saturday and Sunday, the days flew by as Ben and I sat around the tv listening to our church leaders address the church as a whole.  There was some goooood stuff, man.  Check out the talks here.  

One of favorite quotes came from Elder Robert D. Hales:  "May we love Him so deeply...may we have faith so completely."  My cup has been filled and my spirit has been lifted.

Onward and upward!


  1. Ahhh, I can't believe 7 years ago I graduated from HS! Geez. Time really does seem to go by quickly! PS, I love your iPhone screensaver!

  2. I had to check your math when I read it's been 7 years since 2007. I can't believe I graduated high school 7 years ago! Oh man, I feel so old now... :P

  3. I graduated in 09 and I'm still blow away by how quickly time has gone by but at the same time how long again that felt. Growing up is a weird thing sometimes.

    LOVED Elder Hales talk!! He holds a special place in my heart because I met him! :)
