the thing about the thing

ideas i don't want to forget:

.write my babies letters when they're born & every year on their birthday.  give to them at year 18.
.sit next to husband on the pew and let babies find spots on either side. i want to still be near him.
.birthday plate-hand paint special plate for the bday person to eat off of only on their birthday
.frame my babies drawings/paintings/photographs
.mural wall in my house—repaint this wall often with different things. maybe the kids can paint it?
.frame our personal vows to one another—his on my side of the bed, mine on his
.have someone write notes as our sealer speaks to us in the temple  
.always remember to say thank you to husband
.read patriarchal blessing once a month [at least]
.keep hand-sewing xmas stockings for the family and our nieces/nephews
.green dinner on st pattys
.make a new photobook for each year
.let my babies make choices
.begin family home evening even as newlyweds
.teach kids the missionary lessons before they choose to be baptized

i use to feel like i was floating around waiting for something good to happen (babies. house. the jackpot.).  and for the first time in years—i don't want time to go any faster.  i've found satisfaction in my spot here on earth.  i love what i do, despite my inconsistent pay check, and i have my head on straight.  paul is my favorite thing. and i am so lucky for my time spent with him.  i have been blessed.

life is so good.
provo is a fun place for the 4th.
the firework show here was so loud and powerful that all the car alarms went off in the parking lot.
stadium of fire knows whats up.
