i've got a gypsy soul to blame

i love this girl.
we live a state apart but i could probably guess what she is thinking at any given moment.

i've always wanted to travel. it's my dreamy mind.
my current read (the pilgimage by paulo coelho) doesn't help these fantasies
so be it.
i love it.
and i love the amazing ways my life has been shaped. all the details. the smells. the people.
i love my satchel purse and my yellow shirts and all the stripped things i am drawn to lately.
i love the time by the pool and the long phone calls.
i love the feel of my down pillow and clean feet at the end of my bed.
i love the warmth at night here, my hair in a pony, and long runs.
i love being so close to so many temples and eating fruit.
i never want to stop my dreaming, my loving of life. i don't know that there is not much that could stop me.
oh the adventures to be had!

"I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on the earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book." — Joseph Smith

what power his testimony holds of the scriptures. even just opening my bible or book of mormon fills me with warmth and closeness to the Lord. I recently looked at my first, little blue, book of mormon that was given to me by my missionary. the book changed me. it helped me to change my life. it helped me to learn who God is, what I mean to him, and how to be happy in life.

there is nothing more precious to me. and there is nothing more heartfelt than to feel his love and guidance personally. it begins with opening those bindings.
