Change can be kinda hard.

Coming here to Florida was a huge change. Leaving the comforts of my Utah life and the wonderful people I had grown to love there, wasn't exactly easy.

But it didn't take me long to realize how wonderful that change was. My family and new friends have made this past year my most memorable, without a doubt.

Now leaving Florida to go back to Utah will be another huge change for our family, but I'm convinced that there is nothing equal in value to that change.

Change brings challenge, but challenge brings change. Inner change.

With the natural challenges of living in a new state, making new friends, and of course, living with your parents again, it's hard not to do some soul searching. At times I found myself going, "I don't like who I am!" I guess I'm saying I've learned to love myself, even with imperfections. This year has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and explore. And for that I am grateful!

My family has been so wonderful and I am so grateful for this year I got to spend getting to know them all over again. I love you!

I will miss all of my dear friends and my Longwood ward! You are truly wonderful individuals and I love you all!

I feel an overwhelming gratitude and just want to say thanks to everyone who has made this year so special!!!


  1. I loved this post. I have found that so much in life, change helps you learn so much about yourself. It helps you grow and learn! I just wish you were moving closer to me:) You are so wonderful and you have always uplifted me so much. I know you touch everyone you meet!
