I write to inspire...

Intro to Introvert

Hello ♥

I love my solitude, my long drives, my music & my husband’s hand to hold

I love all my journals, written down thoughts & my books

I’m a quiet person & I love to listen to other people

I’m not the life of the party, you can usually find me in the corner playing with the dog

I’ve always seen this as my biggest flaw

Why do I step back away from others & choose to be alone, even when it’s with people I love?

Why can’t I be the fun energized person that my close friends know me as?

Why do I like to be alone so much?

Why can’t I relax in big groups?

Why do people exhaust me?


Au revoir December

Did anyone else feel like December was a magical month?

Thanksgiving was a blast & I felt like everyday after was filled with the holiday spirit!

I love that part of my husband business is to hang Christmas lights. I was able to go with him & see a couple client’s houses & even took some photos for his website.

Lets talk about the snow ♥

Last year we hardly got any in the valley but this year it hit! It hit so hard that the first day of snow I wasn’t even able to drive to work.

Even though I’ll never be a huge fan of then cold, but the snow is absolutely gorgeous!

I’ve grown to love winter.

Shane has made winter 100% more exciting than it’s ever been.

Last year was full of amazing skiing up at Park City, & this winter season we’ve gone ice skating, built a giant snow tower in our back yard, drove around looking at Christmas lights, drank more hot chocolate than you can imagine & Tim Tammed Slammed til we passed out.

Christmas shopping was a blast (crazy right?). I felt like our second Christmas together was even better than the first.

Last Christmas spent together was amazing, but this year we actually had money set aside that we could spend.

We finally had a tree to decorate, Christmas decor, & stockings! I loved decorating for Christmas. I felt like I had an entire year to plan out things that Shane would want for Christmas, we were both spoiled with presents.

The spirit of giving has always been in my heart. I love to give! I love seeing others happy, it brings me so much joy. I guess that is what the holiday season is really about right? I hope that everyone was able to give, even just a little bit.

Acts of kindness never go unnoticed


Positive Vibes List #2


Tis the season for colds, sweats & tissues!

Shane & I both had our rounds of getting sick this winter season BUT there’s always a bright side when you are stuck in bed! So I decided to cure my sickness with a little bit of positive-ness…

1. Husbands– This could probably be listed every time but you can’t help but smile when you’re sick & you having a loving person there to take care of you (plus put up the Christmas Lights!!)

2. Soft Tissue– A comfy tissue is everything, please love yourself enough to go buy a brand that isn’t going to leave you looking like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

3. Sherlock Holmes TV series/Netflix– So I can say I’m definitely grateful for TV shows! Not recommended to watch a Sherlock  episode while you’re only half awake and drugged on Nyquil but definitely worth while you’re recuperating. We became obsessed.

4. Hot Chocolate– It’s warm & it’s chocolate so it makes the list ok? I could stop here but I won’t….ever tried Trader Joe’s Sipping Chocolate? Thank me later.

5. Music– Always helps me sleep, read, draw & you can’t really beat Christmas Music when outside is a Winter Wonderland, it’s so magical

6. Tortilla Soup– Need I say more? (Thank you Cafe Rio!!)

I don’t think I’m alone with being sick this month, what are you grateful for when you’re sick?

Giving Thanks

Ok here’s a plunge into my brain of rapid fire of things I’m grateful for:

Shane’s unconditional love, really what would I do with someone who couldn’t handle all my craziness?

Families, somehow I got blessed into the most amazing family & married into another incredible one, I’m constantly surrounded by some of the most unbelievable people

The Gospel, seeing what it’s like to live a life without the Gospel vs. with the Gospel there’s the biggest contrast & I’m grateful for the peace & comfort it gives me

Homemade food, Crock Pots have become my new best friend

Medicine, DayQuil has saved me the last couple of days

Fleece Blankets, no need to say more

Good Playlists, Spotify rescues me everyday at work

Friends, they’re all too good to me, thanks for always listening

Weddings, makes me appreciate Shane all over again, always reminds me of our perfect wedding day

 Kind people, don’t ever take these people for granted

Good Health, I thank the Lord everyday that I can get up & get ready without passing out

Christmas Lights, they just brings me so much joy & give me the chills

TV in the kitchen, life is pretty great when I can indulge my Pretty Little Liars obsession & clean at the same time

& millions more, it was just what I was able to get out of my brain before I hit the bed.  Goodnight.
