The Blessings Continue

Okay, I am so sorry I have abandoned all my missionary girlfriends out there!
This has been quite the week.


* I got a job: YAY! This is why I have had no time to blog! Thank you Albertsons. I am the girl who cuts fruit all day long...kind of really boring. To keep myself entertained I sing my heart out to Taylor Swift songs and talk to the fruit I'm cutting. My employees are really going to like me.

* I GOT TO SKYPE TAYLOR! Ahhhhhhhh. Okay seriously the best moment of my entire life. I missed him so much and totally started crying while I was talking to him. I am so in love with him and am so incredibly lucky to have him in my life. He seriously makes me feel like the most important person in the world every time he talks to me. I love you baby!

"I feel like we got to hangout yesterday.  Like, in person.  It felt really good.(:  Not perfect, but really good.  (:  I needed that...You are so apart of my testimony, and help me keep it growing.  I'm so happy when I am able to talk about you when people ask me.  It's just another testimony of a good example of a righteous couple, following the ways of the Lord, and supporting each other through it all.
Goodness.  You're such a stud.  But for real, I am so in love.  I'm so happy that you want to serve a mission.  Love you so much, and working hard so we can start a family in less than two years!(: 

always your lion,
T Taw Kozy Bear"

K. He is perfect. And the most handsome boy in the world. And all mine :)

* I get my mission call on Friday! So stoked to find out where I will serve. Let me know if you guys want to watch me open my call! I can have you guys on google plus or somethin :) Post your guesses for where you think I will be going!

* Mine and Taylor's story was featured on

* My best friend created a blog:
And made a video of all her friends. She is so cute. Watch it!

We hope to: Serve our missions to our full compacity, get married to each other in the Los Angeles Temple, attend BYU together, buy a house, share a dingy old red truck, and start a family together.
We trust: In the Lord Jesus Christ, the love God has for all His children, and His restored Church on the Earth today.

I can't tell you how incredibly blessed I feel to be a missionary girlfriend. I get to be a special part of Taylor's journey. I always wonder where I'd be if I never met him. He has changed my life completely and is such an example to me. Everything I do, I ask myself how would Taylor handle this. He is the most Christlike person I have ever met and he keeps me going each and every day. Even from a state away I can feel his love for me and the love he has for our future family. I love him so much. I am so blessed that he has made the decision to serve and has pushed me to follow my desire to serve. He is my other half. Love you T! Muah!

K. I'm done haha ;)
