The Temple

I am so grateful for the temple. Since moving to Austin, we've made it down to San Antonio twice to go to the temple. This is the furthest we've lived from a temple and now we really have to plan our trips in advance.


I am grateful that when we lived close to the temple we were diligent with going frequently and now I'm grateful that we get to make time to go to the temple regularly.

Our Neighborhood

I am grateful for the neighborhood we live in. It's different living in the middle of a shopping center, but it's also really nice. We hardly ever use our car during the week since Jonathan walks to work.


Earlier this week they hung up more lights over the streets and started wrapping trees in lights.


This really feels like home!

Wedding Presents

I am grateful for all the generous wedding presents we received. As I was unpacking all of our things, I still can remember who gave us certain items even though it's been 6 years since they were given to us.


It's still humbling all these years later to know that so many were so generous to us as we were starting out. From bakeware to glasses to dishes, we wouldn't have been able to provide these things for ourselves and so many others were able to help make our home what it still is today.

My Body

I am grateful for a strong and healthy body. Our apartment has a fantastic gym and when I started using it I wasn't sure how my body would react because I haven't consistently worked out in years. I had no real expectations, but I knew that I wanted to take care of my body. I made a goal to work out at least three times a week and the reward would be a much needed pair of new Nikes.


After a few easy workouts on the elliptical, I finally started pushing myself harder and I didn't feel like death like when I was in high school. Because I progressed so quickly, I went ahead and purchased my well deserved shoes.


Just last night I ran three miles in less than 18 minutes. I can't believe that I can actually push myself like this when running an entire warm up lap in high school was too much for me to handle.

Personal History

I am grateful that I have been recording our personal history here. I know that I can certainly post more frequently, but I am grateful that it is all in one place and I can look back on where we were. This is my 500th post and when I see where I was when I started, I am not the same person. I am happy with where I was and where I am today. I would have forgotten so many things if I didn't take the time to record things here.
