Moments Cherished

For the last four years this beautiful season has been packed with long work days, crammed study sessions, midterms and chaos. It is always such a busy time of year for me and the hardest time to truly enjoy. It isn't usually until my last final is over that I am able to squeeze in all the fun things of fall, winter and then celebrate Christmas, all within about ten days. Since being married, however, my priorities are shifting. I will gladly sacrifice a larger paycheck or a 4.0 GPA in order to spend quality time with my husband, family and friends. I have finally seen the light! The Lord is teaching me the value of time and I don't want to miss any special moments, or beautiful memories from here on out. For this reason, our fall this year has been filled with so many beautiful memories already! I've taken entire days off of studying just to bake, we spent two different nights carving pumpkins and making caramel apples with friends. Most recently erick and I took a couple days off of work to escape it all and soak up the beauty in one of the prettiest fall destinations in California, Julian! Julian is home of the world's best pie, prettiest fall leaves and most breathtaking views. So here's to more sleep and less studying! To more enjoying and less worrying. Here's to cherishing every moment, to stepping away from the rat race of life and enjoying the calm, the quiet and the beautiful.

Me and Daddy

Months before the wedding Erick began sorting through hundreds of hours of video footage from the last 22 years of my life and began putting them all onto CDs as a birthday present for my Dad! In the process, he made this incredible video of my daddy and I which we played for everyone at the wedding. My dad and I sat in the middle of the dance floor, hand in hand, bawling and laughing together that night!

Thank you Erick for all your time and energy making this for us and thank you daddy for giving me a perfect childhood. I love you more than anything!
