Things I am grateful for:

1. MY BODY. I came to this earth for my body and what a blessing that is. I am so grateful for my health and all the things I get to do with my body. Exercise is super important to me. Our bodies are amazing. I love my new hobby, yoga, I look forward to it every week!

2. MY EDUCATION. I love learning yes I do. Even though school sucks sometimes I cannot take it for granted. I love my major, photography. I love getting better and getting that perfect photo that is just breathe taking.

3. THE GOSPEL. The gospel is what makes me happiest.  Heavenly Father has blessed me so much in this life and I am forever grateful for the atonement. I am grateful for all Christ has done for me personally.

4. MY FAMILY. Duh cause my family is the best. My family is the craziest and I mean it. I wouldn't trade them for anything. They do so much for me. There is a never dull moment in my home. I miss them already.

5. MY FRIENDS. aka maddi and the boys because let's get real they are pretty much my only friends right now besides my missionaries. I really don't know what I would do without them! Also shout out to my missionaries for serving the Lord, so proud so proud.

6. SODAVINE. Because who doesn't love a dirty diet coke? or a laui laui. I mean I can never decide what I want when I get there. and those swig cookies are to die for.

7. MY CAR. Even though I'm forever in debt because of it I am so lucky to drive my little angus. She is the best and I would have to walk in the cold without her...

8. CONTIGO. My waterbottle is the best. I am so grateful for it cause it keeps my water cold and my ice never melts! It's simple but necessary. {also my fridge in my apt has a ice machine and filtered #blessed}

9. JERUSALEM. For real though, best experience ever. I am forever grateful for my experience there and to grow closer to my Heavenly Father and brother, Jesus Christ. Being able to live where he lived is unforgettable. Also the people I met there are truly my best friends.

10. WOOL SOCKS. Rexburg is awfully cold and I grateful for costco wool socks that keeps my toesies warm(er). 

10 1/4. CHICK-FIL-A. I know I'm a fatty. But the fact that chick-fil-a is on campus is a #blessing. Maybe not to my body but to my mouth and heart. What's better than coming from the freezing cold outside tundra to eating warm fries and chicken? oh and that chick-fil-a die for.

10 1/2. GOSSIP GIRL. If I am sad or bored, gossip girl always cheers me up. I am rewatching it and it is so so good. 

Here's my week home if anyone cares:

W e d n e s d a y : It was a day of relaxation. We didn't do anything and it was great. I went for a run and I forgot how much I love running. Because in rexburg it is awful running weather. It was so warm in washington and I love the fresh air. We went to a movie/dinner thing in Issaquah. It was really cool but weird at the same time. We watched the theory of everything it was really good! The food was okay.
T h u r s d a y : Thanksgiving started out with some pickle ball because dad is obsessed and made us go. I then went on a run after. A bunch of people came over. We had 25 people! I think this is the most we have had. Some friends, family, and missionaries came over. The food was so good. I love thanksgiving and hanging with family. We played lots of rook and games. 
F r i d a y : We drove to Yakima to visit grandma. She is in a rehab center. It was so good to visit her. We taught her rook and ate some food with her. She was doing really well actually. She had a hip replacement last week. I love my grandma she is probably the funniest person I know. 
S a t u r d a y : I took the Bermans family pictures in the morning. It was so fun. We then went to Pikes Place and then us girls went shopping. It was pretty cold but blue skies. It was pretty gorgeous. I love Seattle. We then went rock climbing. I really like climbing. I'm not necessarily good but I want to get better. We then watched a movie as a family. My mom made the best lava cake!! My family is so funny and I love when we all get together. I can't wait to go back in 2.5 weeks!
