June 6

I was baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 23 years ago today. Today is also my nephew's baptism day. I am so happy I get to share this special date with him (and my twin Lesley, and my cousin Jenny as we three were baptized together in the Tabernacle on Temple Square).
I am so grateful every day for my membership in this church and for the gift of the Holy Ghost. I feel guided and protected daily through my covenants that I have made with my Heavenly Father.

Other milestones to celebrate on June 6: I graduated from high school, D-Day, and my grandfather's birthday.
Grandpa turns 87 today!! We took a picture of him and his great grand children through his daughter Gloria. Grandpa is so loved!!!!

Happy Birthday to my Fellow Cat Lady!!!

Yes, our birthday was a week ago but I still wanted to document the occasion. :)
I am so lucky to be an identical twin and that my twin is my very best friend. We often joke that we are the same person in two bodies!
This picture was taken around Easter at our house on Scottish Drive when Lesley and I were 3 or 4 years old. I remember loving this dress and wearing this teddy bear necklace (I felt so grown up!!).
Lesley is holding our beloved cat Berkely. This picture is proof that we a love cats for as long as we can remember! He ran away while we were in Disneyland in 1989.

Birthday Brunch

For our 31st birthday, my mom hosted a yummy brunch at her house. It was all of my favorite food with my favorite people!
Mom made it really special with her fancy China and crystal glasses filled with fresh squeezed orange juice. It was really special.

Last Day as a 30 year old

I feel so special today.
First- my desk was decorated with streamers and a banner when I got in to work this morning.
Second- my boss brought me flowers and a Happy Birthday balloon.
Third- my brother in law surprised me with gorgeous flowers and balloons at my desk in the afternoon. Thanks Haley and Steve!!!
Fourth- I went to the Salt Lake Temple after work.
Fifth- I saw a great movie called The Woman in Gold. I had not heard much about this movie but it was wonderful.

Tomorrow is going to be fun!!

Slow-Mo Twirls

videoSometimes I wish I had long, perfectly curled, brunette hair, like 3 of my gorgeous nieces.

Cousin Pictures!!

I have the world's cutest nieces and nephews!! My mom made all the girls matching skirts and got them all new colored Converse shoes. The colors look so amazing on camera!! Getting Cate to smile was a group effort but the photographer got great shots of each of the kids. I sure do love these little humans a lot.

videoToday is my wonderful grandmother's 87th birthday.
She is amazing and lovely and fantastic. She is always caring and kind. You will never meet a more generous person; she has literally given the clothes off her back.
If there is any way I could possible resemble her in any way, then I would consider myself a success.
Happy Birthday Grandma!!!
