Today is my first as a 22 year old.

I had a sweet little birthday yesterday--lots of kind words and treats and dinner with some besties. Thank you to everyone I love who loves me. I'm a lucky girl. Seriously blessed.

I hope 22 treats me good....

Lately I've been craving a fresh start and a clean slate..

After conference I try to think of some commitments that will make the next 6 months better than the last. (cheesy no? I'm sure an institute teacher somewhere committed me to doing it..) I'll share one or two of mine and maybe it'll help me do a better job keeping them, knowing people out in the blogosphere are keeping me honest..? fingers crossed. ha. 
  1. I wanna share a 'natural and normal' testimony on a more frequent basis... Like, daily. 
  2. Be more active in the gospel, privately.  I loved Hallstom's talk on the difference between the church and the gospel. I felt like this theme weaved throughout  a lot of the talks for me.. 
  3. Strive for more unity. 
  4. Date more seriously. Seek now to start a family of my own. Anyone who knows me knows I kind of suck at dating....or rather, that I'm really great at first dates.. but that it never goes anywhere because I don't commit, ever. There's no message I heard louder and clearer from conference besides how wonderful it will be to have a husband and a family. I want that. Bad. I know I'm young, and I'm in no hurry to run off and get hitched...but I just need to be honest with myself. There's nothing more important to me. I need to reflect that with how I date, and stop dating people that I have zero intention of ending up with. 
So there it is people.
